We will all remember Kelly’s genuine spirit, her capacity to love everyone, her infectious laugh and that smile.
She was an incredible mom, who would do anything for her girls. From weekend getaways with Marque to mother-daughter trips to the beach, it was a joy being around her because she was comfortable in her own skin and made no apologies for who she was. She was Papaw and Bobo’s basketball playing, Kentucky-loving, little girl. Her essence was Jesus; she lived out His heart, and will be singing to Him, barefoot, for eternity.
