She excelled at dance, art, and photography, and had an incredible talent for finding style and beauty in everything. Kelly lived her life independently and to the fullest; no mountain was too high to climb. When faced with difficulties, Kelly rose above and faced the challenges head-on, setting a great example that will live on in her family and her daughter. Right until the end, her biggest concern was for her family, friends, and cats. Kelly will be dearly missed and forever will be a part of our Essentials family. RIP beautiful girl.
