Kelly was quick witted, with an even quicker smile. Kelly will be missed by all, including Chewy, whom Kelly rescued from the humane society and who became her best friend, confidant and protector. Kelly would hope that you would join her family in celebrating her life and rest in that she is perfect and wrapped in the arms of her Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ.
