Kelly, you will be missed by so many people, including me. I am Regina’s good friend, but as long as I have known you, I’ve felt your friendship to me also. You are very loving and caring with your family and friends. I say “you are”, rather than “you were”, because I believe you live on in the presence of God and your loved ones who’ve gone before you. Instead of “good-bye” it will be “until we meet again”, dear lovely Kelly.

Kelly my sweet cousin, I am at a loss of words and still can't believe it, I am going to miss you terribly, I have so many memories of the 2 of us growing up together on Douglas (all the slumber parties we had), I will never forget the time I stayed the night and we were up all night playing Monopoly ( don't even remember who won) but we had a great time, you were an amazing person, so strong, independent and always there to help others, you had a heart of gold, you are forever in our thoughts and memories, we all love and miss you so much. Give uncle Vincent and aunt Jeannette for me.
Love you lots cuz.

We miss you Kelly and the world wont be the same without you in it. The biggest memory that comes to my mind is when me and Kelly snuck out at 5 AM to go see the sunrise and ended up getting arrested for being out past curfew lol. I have so many memories of you and us that it just floods my mind thinking about them. I watched you grow to be a loving, responsible, and strong woman who would take on the world if needed and would bend over backwards for your family. You were always like an Energizer bunny that just kept going and going no matter how beaten down you got. We will forever miss you and one day we will see each other again. Give Rufus and Libra my love and til we meet again I love you cuz.
