A letter from Kelly:
As my mom’s daughter, I have to say I was and am very proud of her and to say she was my mom. Being her daughter was an honor for me. I had two of the greatest parents in the world and I am very proud of both of them. They are both missed so much. I thank the good Lord for giving me such wonderful people as my parents. I love you Mom and Dad.
