Kelley will always be in my heart. Her kindness and sweetness will never be forgotten. The love she showed to others was awesome. She was a rare flower that brightened a room. I am glad I had the honor to know her. She will never be forgotten. I am sorry for the family and I pray that they have strength in this trying time. I pray they may have peace in their hearts.
