Thank you to all of the volunteers who have contacted us over the last few hours. We are reading your emails. We have passed the information along to Maggie Smith, a very close friend of Kelly’s, and she has written a beautiful obituary. I am positive Maggie will do a great job with the site along with the help of Deward Knapp, who was referred by friends of Paul and Kelly, on the website.

Please feel free to contact us with your ideas.

Thank you all so much for your support.

    I grew up with Nicole, Kelly’s sister but knew the whole family. I walked through a woodsy path to the trout ponds. My heart is broken for you all. My thoughts and prayers continue for you!

    I am dismayed to see the removal of Kellly’s memorial. What happened to it? My family is still grieving for her and her family. It was my kids (children, nephew and nieces – all adults) that were right behind her by only minutes on their bikes that horrible night. My niece Ellen picked Kelly’s bike off of the street and placed it on the lawn in front of our house (626 Washington) not knowing what had just happened. They heard all of it – but saw very little. They are the ones who called 911. They are haunted by memory of it all. Our hearts still ache for you, all of you and for us as we feel maybe we could have done something differently, something that may have helped. Our lives will forever be impacted by her untimely and cruel death. We pray that one day, someone will be accountable for her death. Such a beautiful young woman…..We are so sorry for you all.
