There were many special teachers that had touched Kelly’s life and she theirs: Marti Yelverton, Nancy Leahy, Beth Gandy, Mike Britt and Cindy Schwarzer.

Those that knew our Daddy’s girl Kelly, know how much she enjoyed her music, especially Bruno Mars, Sugarland and Little Big Town. She loved dancing, being silly and Skyping with her nieces on her tablet. Kelly never met a stranger, cheerfully greeting with “How you?” Of course, her response was always “Fine!” If it had wheels, all the better! She loved pushing her buggy full of her worldly possessions around the house, pushing her tricycle, swimming, and sitting in the porch swing. Wherever Kelly was, her best friends Bear and Chewy were always by her side. Fall was her favorite season as that meant PUNKIN TIME! We are sure she is driving her golf cart to her heart’s content, sporting her safety glasses and hard hat in Heaven, instead of being the navigator, pointing and demanding “Go dis way!” She is also the school bus driver including others on her CBI trips. She had a strong will and a kind spirit. She had a way of melting your heart and putting you in your place at a moment’s notice. She shared her light with so many during our blessed 22 years with her.
