ADD A MEMORY
Wendee West

Kelly and I spent many days and evenings practicing makeup and hairstyles...good grief the cans of hairspray we went through! I remember laughing ourselves to sleep during sleepovers at her house. Drives to no where on Sunday afternoons. Long talks on the phone...then texting through the night while drinking our favorite wines. We talked about having a long weekend getaway...no men aloud...at her and Gary's beach house...then the hurricane hit. After months of dealing with all the damage from that, we talked again about trying to plan a trip. I wish we had made the time for that one last memory. She came to visit over Christmas a few years ago. It was like no time had passed. It was such a wonderful evening. She was such a kind person with a loving heart. She will be greatly missed.

A pic of Kelly's two beautiful daughters from Abby's 8th grade dance. It was a crazy day, lots of make-up and hairspray and getting all the girls to the photo spot and dinner. Great sharing those memories with you Kelly. You will be greatly missed Kelly!
