  • Michael and I send our condolences as we are both heartbroken at Kelsey's passing. We will never forget her 13th birthday when she begged me to let Michael stay the night with all the other teens. You were very brave to allow them all to stay! We have very good memories of Kelsey from bowling when the kids were little to her 13th birthday to seeing her blossom int0 a beautiful young adult. RIP Kelsey! 💜
