  27. I am deeply saddened by Kelly’s loss. She was a truly beautiful person inside and out. Her children came first. She cheered them on at Track and Field meets, assemblies and other school related activities. She always had a smile on her face. Her heart was always in the right place. Her generosity was like no other. She offered the use of her van and donated toward my Terry Fox Barn Dance Event. She got us started in Fostering years ago, mentoring Dale and I through the process. She even gave me a gas card when she knew that I was taking time off work to support my dad with his advanced cancer. Kelly was such a great person and I know that she will be missed greatly. My condolences to Kim and her kids❤️❤️🙏
