I had the opportunity
of helping care for Kelli when she was young. While giving me the opportunity to see a family, full of love, lifes ups and downs and Gods love in a family. (Which I am so thankfuk for). I saw the love, dedication and family support that she was shown by her wonderful caring, loving mother, her fathers love as well as others that loved
Kelli myself included. She lost her father at such a early age which Im sure was a great pain for her as she was always a daddy’s girl. I
am so very sorry for the lost of this sweet sole to her children , grandchildren and loved ones. May God bless each of you for all the love, forgiveness and respect shown to her. Rest in peace Kelli till we meet again.

Keeping all of you in my thoughts and prayers! I went to school with Kelli and it has been many years since I have seen her. I can tell she was a loving mother and that she will be truly missed. I feel sure she will be waiting with open arms one day for each of you! Until then, may God wrap each of you in his arms and give you peace!
