Where do I begin? From a very young age, you had that independent spirit, strong will and sense of adventure. You were a mama lion when it came to your children and grandchildren. So many times, you were my hero...standing up for what you believed, speaking your mind, and taking on battles for yourself and others. When you received your diagnosis years ago, one of the first things you did was arrange support systems for your loved ones. You were a joy to be around. I’m going to miss you. Suffer no more; RIP Kelly. Love you.

Sarah Clemens-Russell

Mom. I love you. I don't know who I will call everyday on my way home from work. Who I will talk to when I'm upset and about to do something stupid. A piece of me died with you. I'll never forget you and try to live up to be the person you wanted me to be. It's just not gonna be the same without you.

Kelly was a great woman. She always had a smile for me and she had one of the best laughs. I will miss her so much. She was one of my cousins that I looked forward to seeing most, just to be infected by her happiness. She was definitely one in a million. Love you, Kelly. May you rest in peace.
