Kelly was more than family she was a dear friend. I was blessed to have her in my life from a very young girl that grow into a beautiful woman and mother. We sent many times laughing and talking when I lived in Thunderbay. After moving away for awhile I did return to Thunderbay and Kelly and Todd let my girls and I live with them for awhile till I got on my feet. So many stories I could share. Distance played a huge part in us not keeping in contact but I knew as she did that we thought of each other often and missed each other dearly. She use to say to me before she had kids" Cheryl I hope I am half the mom you are" after Kelly became a proud mom I would say often to her" Kelly you are so much more than half a mom you are the whole bag or chips and some and we would laugh. I know you are sitting beside the love of your life and smiling down on your beautiful children. I will miss you dearly and cherish the many times we talked. I love you Kelly
