Kelly was one of the most enjoyable, capable people I ever worked with. May she rest in the arms of the everlasting Father. I pray for peace and comfort for her family. Kelly will surely be missed by all.

Kelly, though I never got the opportunity to meet you in person, we exchanged many emails and phone calls during our careers at Heartland. You were always friendly, kind and professional, to your colleagues whether we were in J'Ville services center or in the field. You will be missed!

Kelly was more like my real daughter but very much better as I told her very frequently. She was loving, giving, caring,
shared her faith, and a strong woman body and soul! We laughed, cried, went shopping, to her chemo treatment's in Tn. and Indiana. There's not much we didn't talk about, we loved each other always and had a physic bond between us that was amazing !I wish you were still here honey because I miss you totally to the heavens and beyond

The greatest, strongest, bravest woman I believe I have ever known.
Tough loving, gracious to the end of time.
I had the honor of having her for 41 years in my life.
God has taken her to be in eternal peace.
To those she leaves behind, Godspeed
Alvin Sr.. her great-grandfather stated, "She's the best of the bunch!"
I know that's true. She carried a heavy burden and has never complained.
She only lamented she would have to stop working, and that didn't occur,
until she couldn't make it from the car into the building.
Strong, giving, loyal, loving wife, mother, daughter, friend...
She filled her 41 years with more than most do in twice the time.
I've not always been the father I maybe should have been...
But there's never a second I wasn't rooting for you Kelly Dawn.
I've cried with her, prayed for her and accompanied her to her appointments.
It has been my honor to have been blessed with my daughter,
for the time that we did have.
Go forth daughter, look down upon us, guide us
Sit next to God and pray for us. We'll be there so very soon.
Thank you for a life splendidly lived and brilliantly shone.

We saw Kelly and her family on several holiday occasions. Her father is David's nephew, so gathering at Thanksgiving and Christmas was always fun. She was such a joyful person and very giving. We are grieving with the family and send thoughts and prayers for their peace.

Sorry I never met Kelly personally, but I knew of her for years because I've worked with her brother Al for years. He is like family to so many of us around here and our hearts ache for you all.
Thinking and praying for your family.
