My Kelly...

Kelly passed this morning at 315am. My mom and I were there in the room as well as her hospice nurse. I was holding her hand and talking to her and feel that she went as peacefully and comfortably as one can.

Kelly had such a zest for life and strong fight in her which she's displayed to many people since her 2003 thyroid cancer dx. I know she's inspired many people and will continue to. In these last few weeks I ensured she knew about all the love, prayers and support everyone was sending.

I can't believe this has happened and really have no other words. My heart is broken.

Take care. Spend time with your loved ones. Tell them how you feel. Make memories. Talk. Laugh. Live.
Lisa (&Kelly)

Lisa, I have followed your struggle these last months and know how hard you worked to give Kelly whatever she wanted and needed, including her angel wings. Her pain is gone now, and in time yours will become bearable. This loss won't go by lightly, but tomorrows will keep coming. Hope that each one finds you feeling stronger and more at peace.

Barbara,

Thanks for your post. It's hard to believe my pain will lessen right now but I 'hear' you. Tomorrow's are a blessing.

I am so sorry to hear of your loss. It is very hard to let our loved ones go even though we know that it will take away their pain. It sounds like Kelly had a peaceful passing, and I think that helps those of us left behind a little. My prayers are with you and KellY's mother. Take care of yourself. Fay

Fay,

Thanks for your note and prayers. I don't feel like I let her go but I guess in some way(s) I did. By me letting go, she was able to move on? Yes I think Kelly passed peacefully.

Thanks,
Lisa
