Dear Nancy, I was so sorry to see Kelly's obituary. I had planned to come to visitation today but have come down with the crud and no one would want to be around me.
Please feel the comfort of my arms. I pray for you, Kim, her husband and daughters families and know her granddaughter as you all will miss her presence in your lives.
When I think of Kelly I remember taking her to Dietschs on a trip to the mall store. She introduced me to Lemon Custard. It's still a fav of mine.
Thinking of each of you.
