After reading the obituary of your beloved Kelly and then her blog I am touched by the genuine care and love she had for her family. My heart is heavy that a beautiful, young wife and mother left the embrace of her love ones.

Kelly's loss leaves us all deeply saddened but her resilient spirit must continue. Now that I have learned of her background, I know that she lived out her mission from day one, long before her illness. Her mission was one of truth, optimism, compassion, honour, love, spirituality, and courage, to name a few. It is my hope that her family can seize upon that inner strength and live out the goals she had for them. It was an honour to have been a part of their journey. She was surrounded by tremendous support and love. May her spirit continue on in all those she touched and beyond. She was an incredible WARRIOR.
