I am deeply saddened. I remember so vividly Kelly's first day at work with us. So many memories are flooding back. I remember her telling us that she was going to have a baby and how excited she was. The years have flown by and with it so many memories. I will forever be grateful for our friendship and the love of my Bingo that she made possible for me, he loved you first Kellymama. You are not gone, but just away. What a joyous reunion there will be when we all are reunited in glory. ❤️
