Condolences & Memories (3 entries)

  • Doug, Sheila and Scott our hearts break for you and for Kelly's husband and children. We only recently learned of her passing. We remember meeting her at the Atchison farm one summer in Findlay and thought she was such a lovely young women. She was clearly raised well and we could tell that your family was very close to one another. Kelly fought a long and difficult battle with dignity and courage and no doubt everyone she touched became better for knowing her. Wrap yourselves in memories of her. God bless.

  • I met Kelly the day we moved you to Woodlands. She was still a baby. I can remember you being so very proud of her and how athletic she was. She was only two years younger than my youngest daughter. My heart just aches for you and Sheila. Carol and I will keep you in our thoughts and prayers.
