    Just passing along our love and deepest sympathy. Our hearts are heavy. Many prayers (more than you may realize) continue for you. It was so good to see you and Kelly so happy together in church last Sunday and to share a meal with you at the fellowship luncheon.

    I went to school with Kelly from kindergarten through high school. She was wonderful and caring person. Although, I have not seen her in 20 years, I have fond memories of our times growing up in West Fork. Rest in peace Kelly. Thoughts and prayers are with family and friends.

    Doris, Thank you for your loving kindness in friendship towards me. Kellyne loved you so much and was thankful for all you had done for her in the past several years. I will miss my friend and our times together. She taught me much about perseverance and faithfulness towards our loving Father. I saw the deep hurts in her many times and with the Spirit within me and His words spoken through me attempted to comfort her. She was a beautiful woman and I am so grateful God had put us together. May His words comfort you and your family during this difficult and unexpected loss. Our love and prayers to you and your extended family.
    Love Always, Kimberly Mulcahy

    Doris, This morning, as I read about your daughter’s death, I remembered you and the smile on your face each time I passed your desk. I hope you will find a healing peace through this pain of loss. And I hope, in time, the pain will ease and you can smile once again. Grace, love and strength are surly yours.

    It was an honor and privilege to have called Kelly a friend. She had a beautiful heart and soul. Heaven is richer for having received her. She will be missed. But we can take comfort in knowing we will see her again and that at last, she is free of pain.

    Anita,Renee and I read in The Daily Press that Charles now resides in his etarnel home, walking glorious paths in the company of Jesus, the Christ. May your dark days of loss soon give way to celebrations of many good memories concerning the life you shared. Life is truly a journey and not a destination and we count ourselves fortunate to have traveled three meaningful years with you and Charles while I pastored Forest Chapel Church. You both were helpful and welcoming to us we miss the vegetables from the garden . Charles qualifies to be called a Southern Gentleman exhibiting firmness/gentleness; love of family and church, and a true spirit of faith/reason/love. While with us he was one of the good guys . We will keep your comfort in our prayers as well as our petition that God will strengthen you and lead you in the path prepared to continue sharing your many gifts and talents with others. You both continue to be very dear to our hearts Les and Renee

    Just learned today about Kelly’s passing. My condolences. She was in our on-line AA support group for many years and I’ve had the opportunity to meet her face to face a couple of times over the years.

    My heartfelt sympathies goes out to the family of Kelli at this time. Being so young and the tragedy happening so suddenly makes it all the more stressful. She was a member of the same anonymous on-line group to which I belong, and although we were some thousands of miles apart (me in Scotland) she was still part of our family.
    May she Rest In Peace.

    Clay and I were shocked to hear of Kellyne’s passing.
    She’d spent a few holidays with us and several long weekends and was planning another trip to Houston.
    I really thought she was struggling with some depression through these health issues and had just gone quiet.
    Like the others who have sent condolences today, I met Kellyne in NB6.
    I know she is free now from everything that has held her bandage over the years and is no longer missing her friend Dianne… And probably not having to worry about bad haircuts anymore!
