hey mom, I know it's been a while since I've written but I think about you every day. I was gonna stop by and see you last week but we got a big snow storm and they didn't plow but I drove by and said hi from me and everyone else. I've had a rough last few weeks and I wish everyday that you were here. I went to church with grandma melody on Sunday and I could feel you sitting next to me, it was a hard service for me to sit through but I'm so lucky I have grandma. if course Katy and David and I have been spending lots of time together and I'm very much enjoying bein their sister again and not tryin to be a mom. I miss you every day and I watched a thunder storm the other night and I remembered how you used to wake me up to watch them with you and have Oreos. I know you're always with me but it's just not the same when I can't hug you or hear your voice but I'll keep talkin to you as if you're sitting right next to me because I know that whatever problems or things I'm goin through you'll find a way to give me advice and comfort me. I love you and I'll come visit when the snow melts and I'll bring Katy and David by too

I'm sure you already know but it is my turn to be expecting! I am not due until August 7th, but I know you will be proud! Mom is so excited she barely can stand herself! hee hee she has been shopping and of course dad tells her to stop that until the baby is here but she loves to spoil :) Everything has been going really well so far, so I couldn't ask for more except for a healthy baby of course! Sara is doing well down here, although I don't see her a ton, I talk to her more through text and mom fills me in as well as I check in on her facebook ;p. I am proud her of, she is one hard worker! Katy and David came down for Christmas, it was really nice to see them also! Well I better get going got to read a book for work, so I must get busy! Talk to you soon! LOVE AND MISS YOU VERY MUCH!

It is very hard to imagine that it has been 4 years ago today that we lost you! It doesn't seem that long, there are times it feels like yesterday.
Losing you was very devastating to our family, and know that we are always thinking of you and hope you are at peace with the all family angels surrounding you!!
Loving and missing you,
My Dear Niece'
While it has been 4 long years, it still feels like only yesterday that we lost you and how it has changed our lives. What hasn't changed is our love for you and how badly we still miss you. I miss those beautiful eyes and that wonderful smile.
I know that on this day you found peace, yet I know that all of us would do anything to have you here with us.
Watch over all of us and protect us.

I know how incredibly proud you are of Sara on her graduation weekend. You know as I know, how very hard it was for her to make this accomplishment without you physically by her side. I know you were with her in spirit and she knows it too.
I think you are proud of all your kids, they have grown so much still do and will always miss their mom. We miss our niece.
I know that you will be beside Sara when she receives her diploma and her tears will be yours and hers mixed with saddness and happiness.
Give a hug to all of our family in heaven.
Love Uncle Rog
Well darling, it will be another "1st" for your family! Sara's big day and one chair will be empty!! It will be a sad moment for all, and yet what an accomplishment for your daughter! You did a great job with raising her and the reward will be on Saturday when she gets her diploma.

Keep giving them the strength they need to move forward. The missing and loving never stops.
I love you Kiddo and always will.
Sweet dreams on your pillow of peace.
Hey Kelli Jo thought of you alot this weekend, as you already know today is my mom's birthday and your the 1st person to cross my mind when I woke up, how can I forget you got your angel wings on her birthday. I can still remember the time my mom gave you those hiddeous elephant pants back when we were 10 or 11, like why would we want to wear those rediculous pants that she use to wear. I still remember how we rolled around on your floor laughing our butts off because they were so dam ugly. We sure had some good times. Oh how I wish we were young again, I still wonder about the could of beens should have beens. Thanks for all the great memories when we were young, as you already know I ask myself why alot and how life isn't fair and wonder what if to many times. Well I better get of to bed, I know I don't get out here much, but I talk to you often and I know your listenting. Keep watching over your family.
My sis kelli,I can't belive that it has been 3yrs since you left us.It just don't feel real sometime's.I can't call you but i do feel you around me alot.God sure knows who to take.it was a harday but kept you close to my heart and all the wonderful memories you gave.There is not a day that goes by that your n ot thought of.we will be up to visit you and bring your flower's.

Hard to believe that it's been 3 years since you left us. Driving by this morning I noted that your solar lights are out so I'll have to replace them so that you're never in the dark. We're doing fine but we miss you each & every day. Sara had grad pictures done now we just have to pick the ones she wants. Katy's doing good and loves school. David's in football and loves it. I'm coaching his team and we only have 2 games left our record is 3-0 now. I know that you're watching down on him. You'd be proud of all of our children as I am. Say Hi to Great Grandpa & Grandma for us and we Love & Miss you.
Love your husband, Dave.
My Dear Niece:
It still seems like it was yesterday when God called you to his side. I still feel your family's pain of losing you, though I know that you are in a better place.
We all still miss you very much and ask that you watch down on all of us and keep us safe.
Florida was a blast we definitely had the time of our life! Back to reality tomorrow.. Speaking of it will mark 3 years already you have been in heaven, there is still not a day that goes by I don't think of you.. All the pink stuff is out : ) I'm off to bed but will stop back soon and hope to make it up to see you and bring you flowers : ) love and miss you very much
Tomorrow will be 3 years that you ended your journey on earth and started a new eternal life in heaven!
It doesn't feel like 3 yrs., many times feels like yesterday!
God certainly does pick the best, but so difficult here to be without our loved ones!
Know your family is doing well, trying their best to keep your legacy alive!!

Kelli, Its been a while since I've been out to your site, I think of you often as you already know, I see your picture on my mirror every morning. Next Sunday is Mother's Day and me and my daughters will be walking in your honor again this year. We will be meeting your sisters and your daughter Sarah at the MOA. We also plan on doing the walk up north again in July. Gerianne said you will be getting your headstone any day now. Can't wait to see what your husband and children have picked out for you, I bet it will be beautiful just like you. I wish we could go back in time so I could talk to you again and do all the fun things we use to do growing up. Hugs & Kisses to a beautiful angel. Michelle
My dear Niece;
Just want to thank you for listening to prayers but PLEASE know you & Amy still have work to do down here on earth. We need you to protect those who are not in good health, give them strength so they can live a quality life for however long we have them.
Next Sunday is the walk in Memory of you & Amy! The battle against breast cancer continues on for our family in your honor!
I heard your headstone will be laid down very shortly. That has given me great comfort knowing you and your family can now see your final resting place and come to peace with that.
I love you Kelli,

What a beautiful spring and Easter here on earth. Flowers have started to bloom already! My Hummingbird vines should bloom this year. I so want a "hummer" to come visit. I always think of you when I picture them coming to my garden. I saw them at Gerianne's. They are sooo tiny and cute. At least this time, your AC will not confuse them with a big bug. Ya, you got a big kick out of that didn't you?
Flutter by anytime you like. That annoying bunny that you and Aim had fun with is packed away until next year!
I love and miss you Kelli.
Happy Easter Kelli!!

Hi Aunt Kelli! It has been a very long time since I have wrote to you! Things are busy but you already know that. I just want you to know that thers is not a day that goes by that I dont think of you. There are songs that come on and I think of you. I feel the warmth from the sun and I think of you getting ready to plant your flowers like you use to do every spring. Lora is doing good. Grandma is very excited to be a Great Grandma. I am going to see her today so I am sure it will be a good laugh. I just want you to know that I miss you and I love you.
Hello my dear Niece!
Don't want you to think you are far from our thoughts or hearts.
It's almost springtime for real, and looking forward to seeing pretty flowers instead of the white stuff!
So much going on down here on earth, but I'm sure you & Amy are well aware of it. Just hope we get guidance from the 2 of you when we need it.
Overall I think our families are doing good, trying to continue to make you angels proud of us.
Well I am going to go for now, but will be back. Keep heavens garden in bloom!!
Love you Kelli!
Love Aunt Deb xo

Great Grandma Hardy is not doing good at all but I know you already know that cuz your getting a place ready for her up there with you and you guys can make quilts And jam and do puzzles but I'm sure gonna miss her when she goes. It's really hard for me to be in the room because the whole time I'm there a only see you and it brings back memories that are not good ones. I'm glad that I got to hold your hand and listen to our song and got that smile sayin that everything is gonna be okay before God took you away from me. I miss you every single day but I'm thankful for the time I had with you.

Hello my dear Niece!
It's been awhile since I last visited you here, but not because I have forgotten you!! Never!!
I have been thinking of you & Amy so much lately and can't help but wonder if you are letting me know you hear my prayers at night. I'm not asking for anything big, and I know if any Angel can help it would be the two of you!
Your oldest daughter certainly is growing up quickly isn't she? Almost 17 already - where did all the time go?? Most certainly her Mom is guiding her aren't you?
We are all doing the best we can, trying to keep our feet one in front of the other. That's the best any of us can do for now ...
I love you Kelli!
p.s. Give my girl a hug n kiss for me!!
hey mom, it's Sara, i got some time to write quick. sorry i ain't written in a while but it's hard to find time during school. things have been going good and are getting better, me and the kids and Dad went out sledding the other night around 10 and i remember when you'd wake me up at 3 or 4 in the morning to eat oreos or go to Wal-Mart or to go sledding. i miss you every day and can you believe after this semester i'll be a senior! i'm so excited, and plus my birthday is next Thursday and i'll be 17! i ain't sure what i wanna do yet but i'll probably just have family over that thursday night and maybe have some friends over another time. well i should go the bell is going to ring but i'll try to write again soon. i love you and miss you everyday, and tell Amy i say hi.
Love always, Your Little Peanut :)

Well, another Christmas came and went. As a family, we try to be stronger and more at peace. Not an easy task, there are 2 souls missing. I do think your loved ones are moving forward and taking your love with them, every step of the way.
I do hope that you, Amy and all those loved ones who have gone before us, are creating a new circle of life in Heaven. The link just keeps getting larger.
We just know the 2 of you made a beautiful Christmas with the Angels.
Please feel our love and thoughts floating to you.
I love you Kelli, and picture you in my heart everyday!
Kelli, Wanted to stop and say I think of you often, I look at your picture on my dresser almost every morning! I seen you hubby & kids at Holly's wedding, they seem to be doing well. You are very missed by your entire family, I wish you were still here for your children. Well I love you "Kelli Jo", Merry Christmas.
My dear Niece Kelli!
Before the holiday and craziness starts, I wanted to stop by to tell you we think of you daily! These are tough times for our family, but somehow I feel you & Amy are with all of us.
I'm sure the two of you played a part with Grama and we all thank you so much!! Now you can go with all the other angels and celebrate the holiday in your celestial ways!!
Dance! Sing!! And most of all, know our thoughts and love are sent up to you always!! Wrap your wings around your family when you see them fall.
Merry Christmas in Heaven Kelli!!

Hello my dear Niece!
I can still vividly remember 2 years ago today. My heart still aches for your family, including all of us. We lost a very beautiful young woman that day who meant the world to so many!! The loss of you is very easy to see in your husband and kids but they are putting everything into trying to move forward.
Yesterday was Holly's shower and both girls looked just as beautiful as their Mom!
Losing you and Amy has been a very big cross for all of us to bear but we are slowly getting stonger and am sure the 2 of you are very proud!! We need you & Amy to keep a close eye on Grama too ok?
Keep your fluffy wings wrapped around your family and continue to comfort them in their dark hours.
Love and miss you,
Hard to believe it's 2 years since God called you home. Our loss, His gain.
I am so proud of your family Kelli, they may not see their strength, but we do. It's amazing the way they all pull together and keep you memory alive.
We saw the kids and Dave last weekend for Gramma's 90th. Today, your girls helped with Holly's bridal shower.
How proud you must be of all of them!
I love you sweetheart, I think of you every day!
Dear Hardy/Nasby Family:
Sunday will mark the second anniversary that God called your beloved Kelli Jo to be beside him in heaven and I still see the pain of her loss in your eyes.
I want you all to know just how proud I am of your family because you have worked hard to keep Kelli's memory alive as hard as it has been. But together with Amy's loss too we will continue to become stronger as a family and look forward to our future and children's future.
God bless you all,
Honey, It's coming up on 2 years since you left us and not a day goes by in which we don't miss you. Taking the girls down to Mooselake where your sisters will pick them up so they can go to Holly's shower on Saturday. Little man had football game last night and they won 25 - 0, I've attached a picture of our number 24, he's quite the athlete. He Loves to TACKLE. We love and miss you tons and keep us all under your watchful eye. Love always your Husband. David Hardy
My dear sister kelli,Well the day's are counting down for the wedding.Thing's are going good,I know you will be watching over us all on holly's wedding day making sure things are where they should be.We went to grandma's 90th birthday party they all did a great job for her,it was wonderful and she was so happy.The kids and daivd came down also they are growning up so much,you would be so proud of them kelli When they are around i see you so much.There are so many hard day's and i'm trying, the memory's are so in my heart but to not hear your voice and your laugh it so hard yet.well my sis we will be comming up on sunday to visit you it will be 2years since you left us I'm sure will know we are there,keep in touch o.k.
I Love And Miss You so,
Love your sis Gerianne xxoo:)
hey mom! sorry i haven't written in a while but its hard to get to a computer and we've been super busy! david started football a few weeks ago and he loves it, he had a game last night and he scored 2 touchdowns he was excited about that. it's homecoming week this week too and me Trina and Sam have been busy all week just hanging out and making shirts and going to the game tonight. it will be fun but i wish that you and me could have gone to more than just that one game, but we had fun. hopefully we win cuz we're 2 and 2 now but it will be a good game. then we're going down to the cities for great grandma's birthday, i'm excited to see her, and me and aunt gerianne are gonna get things ready for our early Christmas, we're having it at our house this year which dad isn't so thrilled about but it will be nice to have everybody togehter. we also found a headstone that i know you would love, me and dad really like it, and i don't think i wrote to you on your birthday so happy late birthday, sorry i'm a little late but like i said it's hard to get to a computer. well i should probably finish my homework so i'll write again soon, love you and miss you tons!
love always, your little peanut :) oh yeah i almost forgot, Sam, Carver and Trina all say hi and that they miss you too
It's been a while since I checked in with you but I am sure you are watching over all of us. I am convinced that you are making sure everything will be just perfect of me on my wedding day. This whole this has been so easy and fun to plan and people tell me its stressful.. I know it is still a little over four weeks away but I haven't felt an ounce of stress or frustration which I am thankful for.. It;s really hard still without you here and I know we will definitely hurt without you physically here for the wedding but I know you will be with us and somehow someway we will feel you there. The girls are coming down next weekend for the shower at mom's I can't wait to see them. I text Sara here and there to see how everything is going. They seem to be doing well. I will be sure to stop in again soon I am going to run for now got hose cleaning to do of course!
I love and miss you VERY much
Kids and I are doing fine but we sure Love & miss you. Little man has his first football game tonight so he's pretty fired up. I'll post some pictures tomorrow after the game tonight. Coaches like him cause he's a big hitter. I help coach too when I can get off of work & I'll be out on the field with the "Eagles" which is the team David's on. Took Sara to Duluth last night, G'ma Melody had knee surgery so she wanted Sara to be there to help her. She's doing good in school so I don't worry about her missing this one day. She'll come back home with G'pa Jerry tonight. Katy running for Student Council again, she's opted out of band and is now in choir seems to like it. Well I'll let you go for now. Love your Husband, Dave.

Hey Kelli, Wanted to wish you a Happy Birthday, I'm sure you and the angels are doing something special today. I know today is your anniversary too, I'm sure this is a very hard day for your entire family expecially your hubby, without the love of his life. Make sure you and the angles your celebrating with today spread some angel dust on everyone close to you to help them get through the day.
Honey - "Happy Birthday" and "Happy Anniversary" we love and miss you tons. I'm taking the rest of the day off as school was cancelled today due to a water mainline break in Bovey. Take David to football practice today at 3pm as after school activities haven't been cancelled. Girls may go with to watch, then we'll go out to eat. Suppose to be a nice day today we'll be thinking of you especially today. All our Love David, Sara, Kaitlyn & David Jr.
I am thinking of you on this day and want you to know that we have not forgotten you. You are still loved and missed very much!
Happy Birthday/Anniversary! I'm sure the angels and Aim will make it a beautiful day for you.
It's a bit harder for those of us here. Your family is doing well Kelli, the kids are beautiful children with so much love.
Your honey continues to fight for you. We keep the fight close to us, we have to don't we?
Someday Kelli, we will finally win this battle with help from above.
You are so missed and loved. You know that, right?
I still cry everytime I come in here to chat with you. I miss your voice and laughter.
Little Katy is an image of you Hon. Sara is strong and full of her Mom. :)
The little guy is so cute and has come a long way since loosing you.
We love them dearly and continue to watch over them.
The empty spot will always be there, but nobody can take the memories away.
I Love You Kelli & Miss You!

Hi my dear Niece!
Wanted to let you know I think of you so very often and hope you can see how very much you are missed by all who loved you so very dearly!!
As your birthday arrives tomorrow I wonder Kelli - do you celebrate that day in heaven? I will bet the angels know how to celebrate your special day somehow!
It sounds like David and the kids are doing as well as they can. We saw them at Melissa's wedding and they looked so nice and as usual, full of hugs for everyone.
I just want to say to you - we all miss and love you very much, and hope you keep watching over those who need you most!!
Happy Birthday Kelli!!
Here it is the 8th anniversary of 9/11/2001 in which all of our lives were forever changed as I was deployed out for a year and a half. Our anniversary would be soon too as well as your Birthday, hard to believe that it's almost been 2 years since you left us. Kids started school on the 8th and they all seem to enjoy. Sara's been practicing driving and she'll have a car once she gets her license but she still has to take drivers education yet, I think she's enrolling in the next available class. Little man's in Football, I'll get a picture of him all decked out in his pads. He seems to enjoy it so far but they've only had 2 practices. Practice Monday - Thursday after school, with some games on Thursday and a jamboree to be held on a weekend to be announced. Katy found some pink material at Walmart which has LOVE/HOPE/CARE on it of which we bought and she's made some tie blankets one to keep and one she'll either sell or give as a gift to someone. We all Love and Miss you.
Keep a watchful eye over our children. Love your husband, Dave.

Things have been hectic as ever haven't done much just working and running back and forth. Sara spent week in Cities, I took Katy as far as Mooselake, Gerianne picked her up as they had Melissa's Bridal Shower on Saturday. David and I got a room by Duluth and spent some quality Father/Son time. Came back home Saturday went to Car show/Swap meet in Grand Rapids then to movie "Transformers". Back to Mooselake on Sunday to pick up girls then back home. I put a picture in of the Cancer Awareness float that Katy and I did for the parade in Nashwauk this year, I hope to have it running by Bovey "Farmers Day" over the Labor Day holiday. Got two weddings in August Melissa's on the 15th and Samantha Littler's on the 22nd. Love and miss you, Your Husband, David

We did it, we crossed the finish line as a team. All 40 something! Robbie and I brought up the rear, but that was OK, your little guy was with us the whole time.
It wasn't a celebration honey, all the pain came through. Only tears and pain. No cheering, no laughter. It will never be a celebration for our family. Just determination to help find the cure! Your family did you proud Kelli.
Sara had a hard time before and after. Katy had a hard time once we finished.
The little guy? Hard to read at his age.
Your Honey flew your flag proud.
I just wanted you to know, we will continue to walk until the cure is found.
For you, Amy and all the others battling this disease.
I love you Kelli, and I miss you!
My Dear Niece:
How different, how very different the Mother's Day walk was this year. Last year we walked in memory of you and this year we walked in memory of you and Amy. I wasn't looking forward to the walk this year. Too much sadness and pain. But I managed as did all the family and friends who walked to finish. I am very grateful to all of them for joining us.
I felt you and Amy with me all the while.
Missing and Loving You,
My dear Niece -
I just have to believe you & Amy were walking with the family making sure they would be as strong as they could. A family to be so very proud of right?
David stopped over Saturday with the 2 younger ones - oh my how they are growing! He had flags made for everyone, they were very nice and he carried the big one during the Walk.
You know Kelli - all I thought of for days is there are 5 children whose pain we can not in our wildest dreams imagine!! I also believe their Mom's had them in their wings when they saw them falter. Such brave kids! Such role models for us adults!! You & Amy were the best of Mom's and your kids will prove it to the world!!
Well my darling I am going to leave for now but I will come back again!
Love and miss you,
Hey! I wanted to stop by to wish you a Happy Mothers Day! We just got home from the MOA walk it went well there were a lot of people there. We stayed as strong as we could but of course it was tough, Mom and Katy stayed at my house last night and we were up until about 11:30 doing the cha cha and electric slide I think we all got a second wind all of a sudden! Then we were up at 5:30 this morning so I am going to take a nap now and get ready for the work week to begin tomorrow! I will be up to see you in July I know you will hear me coming! I love and Miss you VERY VERY MUCH!
I wanted to stop by and say "Hello". Dave, little Dave and Katy stopped over today. I can not believe how much Katy looks like you. It got me all emotional. They seem to be doing really well considering. Our family is so amazing. I feel pretty honored to be a part of this family.
I know you and Aim are having some fun these days. I hear the stories and have witnessed a few of the "unexplained"! I know its not just Aim egging on Sierrah too. I know your right there with her and maybe another person or two, egging Pooders on to be a naughty baby girl!
I know you and Aim will be at the walk. Thank You. Im going to try and rest a little. Its 2:30 a.m. and I have to be up at 6. I love and miss your beautiful smile!!

As you know, we are getting ready for the "walk". We pray a cure will be found.
We hope others will benefit from our walk and determination. It's hard Kelli, we all miss you and Amy so dang much. We want you both with us and yet, we remember the pain and suffering you both endured. We will continue to carry on the fight Hon, we promise you that!
I am trying my hand at roses again. Your brother bought me 2 more. Let's hope I can keep them going longer than one season.
It was nice to visit with Sarah when she surprised everyone. She is such an image of you!
We look forward to seeing them on Sunday.
Sadly, it's a mixed emotion kind of day.
I keep looking at the pictures of the walks we did with you. I so love your face and determination Kelli. You knew the cancer would take you. You also knew, we would continue the battle here on earth.
I so loved your strength and faith Kelli.
I can only hope and pray I have a fraction of both!
I love you and miss you!
Here we are with another Mothers Day fast approaching we all miss you alot. Getting ready to head to the cities for the MOA cancer walk,Emotions will be especially high but we all Love the support of Family and Friends. Little Man's B-day on Saturday,hard to believe he's already 10. I'd like to take him to a Twins game but haven't gotten tickets yet. I'm havin some things made special to honor the memory of both you and Amy and I hope that it instills an appreciation/awareness and does you both proud. You were and still are an inspiration to me as I can still picture your strength but also your pain and suffering you endured in your battle with cancer. I felt so helpless so us getting the awareness out there is one way we can hope that a cure is found. We love and miss you alot and we know that you'll watch over us all but I need you to especially keep an eye out for our children and keep me in line as a single parent trying to fulfill both roles as a Dad but hardest yet being a Mom.

I am just sitting here waiting for the work day to end and thinking of you and Amy probably because of the Mother's Day walk that is nearing.
It was very hard last year walking without you and it will be doubly hard walking this year without you and Amy. But we will all get through it because we know that you both will be with us in spirit.
We have a pretty good size group walking again this year. I've been working on my sign, tough to do trust me.
I just wanted to drop you a note to let you know that I love you and miss you very much. I hope that you and Amy will continue to watch over us and guide us.

I know, it's been awhile hasn't it?
I wanted to stop in and wish you a Happy Easter. Christ will rise on Sunday, I so wish you and Amy could too.
I know it's just wishful thinking, but it's what I think about.
As we get ready for the Mall walk, I think of you. I remember us laughing because you had to have a "potty" time.
Right on schedule, that's what you told us.
Do you remember you, me and Allie running around trying to find those bags?
We lost Allie for a bit, but we found her and we both took a hand and ran with her to get to our group. We were laughing so hard we almost didn't make it.
It's those memories I hold dear to me.
You were such a Mom to Allie that day. Just like you were such an awesome Mom to your little ones. I so miss that Kelli.
We will walk for you, Aim and all those who continue the battle as well as the ones who lost their battle. We have to find a cure!
Uncle Bob will be joining us with a scooter this year. As you know, he has emphezema. It's a hard road for him and us, please watch over him. If you have any "pull" with the Big Guy, ask him to help Uncle Bob.
I love you Kiddo, I miss you too!
Fly with the Eagles!
All my Love,
We all miss you greatly, seems like only yesterday you were here with us but then again feels like a life time. Took Sara to Mooselake she wanted to spend Easter down in Cities, David picked her up I'll head back down Monday afternoon to get her at Mooselake again. Katy and David Jr, are with me we headed to Duluth after went to the Cancer Center to say Hi. Lisa was in Arizona and Dr Ketchum's wife just had another baby(boy) so he wasn't in either. We visited with Chemo nurses and stopped in to see Laurie who always did your blood draw & accessed your port prior to chemo. We went to Mall then to new Menards, in Hibbing now. I've got Church band practice tonight so we'll be heading there soon. We love and miss you tons. Love Your Husband - David, Kaitlyn & Little man
My Dear Niece:
As I begin preperations for this Mother's Day Walk I think of you and Amy so much. It was so hard last year walking with you not with us and now this year both of you won't be with us. But I know that you both will be with us in spirit and cheering us on.
We all very much miss you both and still find it hard at times to accept that you're gone. But we love ya and miss ya!
hey auntie, sorry i havent wrote in a while. crazy life i live but all is well. i seen you were out fishing with me one day. i was at a buddies shack and when i walked out there was a huge bald eagle and it didnt move far from us as we fished. ive talked to sara a few times over text sounds like everyone is doing as well as they can. im back to work finally after six months. getting ready for spring so i can start playing ball again. not much else is new with me, well im kinda dating now and she is great but we will see what happens. oh and i moved to a buddies house in white bear, so im closer for ball and what not. well i better get going but i miss you and please keep an eye on me, love you and miss you. p.s. say hello to my grandma berglund for me..
My dear Niece:
I've been thinking of you & Amy so much lately and wanted to write to you for a bit.
As I watch your family struggle with their sadness of losing you I no longer have expectations of myself with our loss of Amy.
It breaks my heart to have to watch 5 children try to move forward without their "Mom's". My God! That's so unfair and so very painful!!
I have to believe in my heart that the two of you have your husbands and kids wrapped in your wings tight when they are having such a terrible time. It's so contradictive because we know you are now pain-free, yet it has to be difficult to watch the suffering down here. Perhaps the angels have explained the reason to you & Amy so you have a better understanding then we do.
I talked with your Mom the other day, and yes... she feels the loss of you as if it was a few days ago - - but know this Kelli - she is doing as well as she can. Someday all of us will be able to walk straight again, but for now we have to work this through as best we can and allow ourselves the feelings we have that differ day to day.
We speak of you so very often and it's weird how so many different emotions come out, but one thing for sure is this:
You & Amy are so very much missed and the love for both of you is endless!!
I will let you go for now, I'm sure there is some place up there that you need to dust or wax!! Keep on doing all the things you love to do and keep us going in the right direction!
Aunt Deb xx oo
Hey mom its Sara i ain't got alot of time but i was just gonna leave you a quick little note to tell you that i love you and miss you every day.

Stopped by work today with the kids as Sara had to do a project for school. We're heading to a surprise party for Mark Friend as he'll be heading off to Iraq in about a month. We also checked out some of the entries and added the photo of the family from early July 2006. We LOVE and Miss you alot- Love your Husband, Sara, Katy & David.
Well I celebrated another B-Day yesterday, I had your benefit shirt on so that you could be there with me. Scott and Carla finally got the "Pizza Ranch" opened so that's where we went had to postpone my reservation until about 7:45 but had 20 show up, no one left hungry if they did it was there own fault. It was neat as kids and I saw a Bald Eagle (my favorite bird) right on corner of Jim and Betty's and it watched us as we slowly drove past thought maybe it was you watching over us. I'm ready for winter to end warmer today have to work 2 days next week then it's off to the Laurentian Center with David's class for 3 days to chaperone should be fun as forecast is looking warmer. We miss you alot especially me and I'm still slowly plugging away at your Honey Do list but I guess in a way it keeps you with me a lot longer. Kids are doing good but they too are ready for this winter to end. Well I guess that's all for now, You're always on our minds and in our hearts.
Love, Your Husband, Dave

But I know that he is having a hard time I can see it in him. Today I looked at the pictures that they put up on here and I just started busting out crying it is still very hard to look at them I still think about you every day adn I always will. I guess I better get going I think I am going to go talk to dad and help him with his bird house. Love you and miss you very much. XOXOXOXOXOXOXOXOXOXOXOXOXO

Sorry, it's been awhile. I planned to visit you here on Valentine's Day and Sara B-Day. Time just got away from me. Your little Peanut is growing into a beautiful young woman. You must be doing a great deal of bragging to the Angels.
Uncle Bob has gained 17 pounds in the past year. That is good for him.
He and I are trying to quit smoking. I have slipped a couple of times but just got back on the wagon. I'm going to need you and Aim on this one, it's tough, but I am determined.
Keep your wings around your Mom, she is having a hard time.
Hopefully, we can come and visit when we finally get warmer weather.
I Love You!
Happy Belated Valentine's Day. Weekend was very uneventful. I played drums at the variety show at church Saturday. It was a dinner first then variety show they had before and after pictures of those couples in attendance. They showed them on the overhead at the end and I broke down as I realized how much I really miss you and still do. Weather's getting warmer still snowing alittle today. I'll be glad when winter's over. Kids are doing fine but they're ready to get out and about.
My Dear sis Kelli~sorry I didn't get to say happy valentine's day to you.I know you loved your candy heart's so I did eat some for you.It was nice to visit with you last weekend it is so hard to leave when I'm there,I know you lied your daffadil's that we brought for you.Well sara was suprized when we got to the house was nice,made her a cake tooked picture's it was nice to visit.But we will get up again soon honey o.k.I just want to say that I miss my little sis so very much,I Love and Miss you so.I will write back soon.

Hello my dear Niece!
Sending my love to you today, the day of LOVE!!
Keep your wings folded around your family!
Love and Miss you,
Well our Little Peanut turned 16 today, we did good. She's very mature and helps me out tremendously. I broke down and got her a "cell phone" not many talking minutes but unlimited texting as that's what the kids are into these days. Keep a close eye on her as I'm trying to fill your shoes too but no matter how hard I try I'll never be you. We all miss you greatly. Having relatives over tonight for traditional B-Day cake and coffee. G'pa & G'ma Hardy took her out for a B-Day dinner last night, they had a good visit. You're always on our minds and we LOVE and MISS YOU.
Love your Husband.

Hello my dear Niece
I wanted to let you know I have been thinking of you so often, wondering if your place in heaven is as peaceful and pretty as I try to visualize it to be. You and Amy have earned that beautiful resting place after fighting so courageously and gracefully. Your battle never goes without recognition, our entire family speaks often of your courage and determination right up to your final hours.
I hope the two of you beautiful young women are proud of what steps we have taken. Many are just baby steps, but for us they are monumental. Days can be long and lonely, but at the end of every day our final words are telling you we love you and help keep us guided in the right direction.
Keep your wings wrapped around your loved ones, give my little girl a big hug for me, and go do what God has asked of you.
Missing and loving you,

Hard to believe that we're half way thru Jan2009. Has been a brutal week with temperatures well below zero, kids didn't have school yesterday as windchills were at minus 57. Monday the thermometer didn't even register then it finally kicked in at a balmy minus 38, the furnace is getting a good workout. Miss snuggling to stay warm sometimes little man bunks with me usually on weekends. Kids have been doing good can't say as much for me I just try to take it a day at a time just miss what we had together. Work's as stressful as ever but the cold weather doesn't help my temperment either bad cabin fever. It's suppose to warm up this weekend and next week so will take David to rink so we can skate. We've been a couple of times good exercise for the old man. I'll add a picture of us that we used for this years X-Mas cards. Have to start planning for our daughters sweet 16 party maybe you can give me some hints. Love and Miss you a lot.
Hi My Dear:
Another year has passed and a second year of so much saddness. Losing you and Amy has hit this family hard. We all do miss the both of you so very much. If only one could turn back time.
We will begin making plans for the Mother's Day Race for the Cure pretty soon. I hope that we have a big turn out from our families as well we should. We know that we have lost you and Amy to breast cancer, but we know that you would want us to continue to do the things that may help find a cure. We will do our best.
Hey Aunt Kelli it has been a while since I wrote last thought I would stop and update you a little. We finally are moving ahead with wedding plans it is so exciting!! We are having it in November at The Great Hall it is so beautiful there. It is really hard that you won't be able to be a part of it physically but I know you will check in with me on my day and make it go just as I want it to. I am going to have Sara be in charge of the guestbook and Katy and David will hand out the announcements, I wanted to be sure they were in it. I am going to have Aunt Robbie be my personal attendant I know she will do a great job. So although it seems so far away I know it will come soon I am planning like crazy already! Went and tried some dresses on already now I need to hit the gym and lose all this flab! haha I will stop back again soon! I LOVE AND MISS YOU SO MUCH!
My dear sister kelli~

Hi Kelli, Its been awhile since I've written to you, but I think of you daily. I know it was you that came to me while I was preparing my christmas dinner. Shane over heard me tell Chris what happend, then this last Sunday morning he woke me up and said mommy you know that picture on your dresser the lady with the kitty, is that Kelli I said yes, he said she is the one that you heard in the kitchen huh. I said yes, kind of chuckled hes so cute. Then he said she is in heaven with auntie Jackie isn't she and I said yes. Well come to find out he told Miranda that Jackie hangs out with him at school and talks to him. I have to believe him. Diane told him to tell Jackie that she loves and misses her. I was hoping you and Jackie could give one another a hug one from me and one from Diane, you both are very missed. Only if we could all go back in time. Well I have to get going I'll stop back and drop a line. P.S. Thanks for the x-mass visit.
hey mom its sara. wow i have been so busy! we went to the cities for christmas even though i was so excited to have it up here but i guess it didn't work out. we had a blast and i made sugar cookies and wouln't you know uncle david almost ate a whole container to himself. i was so proud of myself cuz they turned out so good. then we went on christmas break and that was okay. then we went to uncle garys for christmas eve and aunt elsies for breakfast then to aunt anitas for dinner. then before new years i went to a church slepover with karissa and of course she fell asleep on me so i ended up staying up all night with a guy i just met. i think you would like him cuz he looks just like carver and he is so cool and sweet. then we went to mark and tammys for new years and hung out and stuff. and that was pretty much my whole break. then i finally got to come back to school but i should go cuz i'm supposed to be working on a history project. love you and miss you alot.
Love always your little peanut

I think of you often and know you are still looking over us all. I can feel you and Amy. Christmas was slow going this year for me I had a very hard time getting it done, but my only strength was knowing my niece's would kick my butt if I became a scrooge, but I must say my angel tree top shone brighter this year because of you two beautiful angels guiding us all thru it all, thank you for your guidance. Sounds like David and the kids are getting along one day at a time, I know you are very proud of them! Keep your wings around us and know we love you to eternity. Love and miss you!

happy new year sis,Love sis Gerianne
Hey auntie sorry I didn't check in sooner we have been really busy preparing for the holidays and traveling to see all of the family on both Tommy and my sides! Mom and I had a b=pretty good turn out with baking our Christmas cookies which was good we were in the kitchen for 6 hours! We got through another holiday without you although it wasn't easy... We know we have to live on and we are trying our best but we are missing a HUGE piece at family gatherings without you. I miss and love you very much.
Another Christmas is upon us we just put up the tree on Sunday. Just hard for us to get in the spirit of things when you're not here. Kids are on X-Mas break and they don't go back to school til 5Jan08. They're all doing good but like me they miss you tremendously. Heading to Gary & Roberta's tonight for the Traditional Family gathering, Arnold & Elsie's X-Mas day for breakfast, then over to Tim & Anita's for dinner. May take the bow with might be able to arrow a deer but season will close end of Dec. & bucks are starting to shed antlers already so I may go deer less again this year. Cold weather and snow have been our winter thus far and winter isn't even begun, we'll just have to settle in for a long harsh one I guess. That's MN for you. I Love and Miss you alot. Watch over our children and guide them as only you can do. Love ALWAYS your Husband, Dave.
Hi my dear Niece!!
It has been awhile since I last wrote to you, but absolutely for not thinking of you! You are truly in my everyday thoughts, wondering what you & Amy are up to in your new "home". Sometimes there just are not the right words ... but I'm sure you know that.
It is true - we want you home with us, but as we get our "reality check", it would be so selfish of us to ask you to be in constant pain and agony for our sake. God saw you & Amy getting tired and I have to believe he is all merciful and had you go with him for eternal release from all earthly pain. Unfortunately my dear Kelli - we are suffering tremendously here on earth. It's very hard to look forward to this coming up holiday with 2 young women gone, leaving behind a husband, children and family who so dearly love you!!
We have a very loving, supportive family and we will hang onto them and our loving memories to get us through this. Your family is so strong Kelli!! They don't realize how much they help Uncle Rog & I, but they sure have many times over!!
I hope what I envision heaven to be is what you & Amy are living now. Beautiful sunny days, healthy, happy and loving NO MORE med's!!
We will in time get to a place of acceptance (somewhat) and yes... bothering you less. Until then, please keep all of us folded in your big white fluffy wings!!
Merry Christmas my dear Kelli!!
Love and miss you,
I wanted to check in with you and tell you that you are so missed.
It has been an awful 2 years for this family. We watched two beautiful young women fight a battle nobody shoud have to fight. Then our hearts broke when you both lost that battle.
I know that you and Aim have been busy trying to keep your family safe. You two even manage to make us smile with your antics. Not the same as those great hugs, but we take what we can get.
Your family gets a bit stronger everyday. They don't see it, but we do.
I cannot phanthom loosing a child. Yet I watch my 2 Sisters push forward and try to bury the pain. I can only hope that I could be that strong.
You have an amazing family Kelli. I wish they could see what we do.
When the time comes for you to move on, please know, it's OK to go Hon. We will help all of them any way we can. Don't hold back, go to that higher place. Take the peace you have earned. You and Aim have stayed back to help all of us. It's time to help you!
We never want to let go Kelli, and we never will.
Just know, we will all be together again. Walk with Grandpa and all the others we have lost. Give them all our love. OK?
You and Aim have earned your wings.
Go higher when you feel the time is right.
I Love You,
My Dear Sister

Hey Aunt Kelli I wanted to stop by to say Happy Thanksgiving! It is my favorite time of year now with all of the Holidays but it is going to be tough. Last year was tough but the reality really didn't kick in I was still in denial that you were really gone. Now it has been over a year and I still do not want to believe that you truly are gone I know you are with us still it just isn't the same with out you physically here. When I see Uncle David and the kids I still look around for you just waiting until I hear your laugh or see your face. We will be thinking of you a lot and try our best to bake cookies...Mom and I will be sure to let you know how we do! I will stop back soon. Love and miss you very much.

hey mom its sara
i got some time so i thought that i would write to you quick school is going good i guess and as you know i didn't shoot a deer again this year. oh katrina says hi. me and katrina were talking about how much fun you me and her always had when she stayed at our house. things with jake are okay too we just think tha we need to put things on hold for a bit because he needs to fucous on school and i probably should too and i need some time to think about you and the holidays. wow its gonna be so hard during christmas but we will just have to deal with it. but i better go because i'm not supposed to be on the internet. love you and i miss you every day
love always, your little peanut :)
Another deer season has come and gone and Sara's yet to shoot a deer. She saw doe's and fawns but like her Dad she doesn't want to shoot them. I guess her girl friend Sarah L., shot a doe and a 9point buck last day of season she was very excited when she called Sara. I've still got a bow license so will try to get out a few more times to see if I can arrow a trophy. We all miss you alot and I know that my house keeping skills were never the greatest but am trying. We'll be heading to cities for X-mas at Robbies our weekend got changed as everyone was sick so decided to have it 1st weekend in Dec. I thought that we'd have it down there as the Base parties will be on the same weekend. I REALLY MISS YOU as you were the rock for us especially during the Holidays. Got a 22lb turkey from work today and will bring it over to Aunt Elsie's so she can cook it up as we're going there for Turkey Day. LOVE and MISS you tons. Will write more later.
Love your Husband, Dave.
I have had you heavy on my mind lately. Are you trying to tell me something? Seems like it but I can't really understand.
You will let me know in time, I'm sure.
Feel free to stop by anytime, I love knowing you are here.
Did you notice when Amy came to you, she was holding her pink blanket you made for her? It went everywhere she went. She loved it very much.
Life seems so unreal these days. It's hard to go to graves to visit You & Aim. It just seems so wrong. I know in time, it will get easier, maybe?
You know what Kelli? Your family is much stronger than they think. Everyone of them! I am in awe of their strength, love and devotion to their loved ones. You must be so proud of all of them.
The more stories we all share, the more I admire your strength and determination. You were always the "spunky" one. You left so many wonderful, loving memories for all to share. When we see your 3 babies, we see you. They are wonderful kids, you and Dave made them strong and loving. How much do we love visiting them and getting such big, loving hugs? Bunches!!!
Well Kiddo, I just wanted to check in with you and let you know, I am listening.
I Love You Kelli,
Sleep with the Angels,
My sister kelli~,

Dearest Kelli ~
I have had you and your family in my thoughts very much lately, perhaps it's that painful time of the year that is making all of us breathe deep!
I can imagine you are watching over your family, knowing some need your comfort more than in the past few months. I believe emotions are heavy, solemn and very sad! I know you will be there to comfort them, and we go day by day trying to do our best to help each other.
I'm guessing you are busy now with baking and getting heaven ready for the celestial holidays. Enjoy the healthy, (finally healthy, pain free) times but keep an eye on all of us! God knows we need it!!
Please give my Amy a hug & kiss for me, tell her I miss & love her (as I do you) and keep your wings wrapped around your family!
Hi Aunt kelli,
Have not wrote to you in long time. Sorry. I have been working like cazy and so has Russ. I am so excited I got my first christmas tree. I am pretty happy about that. I know that you would have loved to see how well russ and I are doing. Actually I know that you see how well we are doing. I know that you are aroud I saw you the other day. Your wings are huge. It is getting colder here but not too bad. Just thought that I would say hi and that I love you and miss you so much.

I was telling mom last night that I want to go out and buy your bath and body or Rapture perfume and wrap it for you... although you aren't here to use it. It is just so hard still. I think about you so much and look at your things on my mantel everyday. We will be up on Saturday and I will be sure to stop I am sure you will here me sniffling miles away. I will write again soon. I love and miss you very much.

Another Christmas is coming and another hard one.
The loss is felt so strongly by everyone.
Someday, we will get passed the pain and feel the love of memories.
Dave is doing so well with the kids. Not an easy task for him, is it?
Everytime I watered my garden, I though of your beautiful gardens.
They were so beautiful Kelli. I'm doing my best to have the same thing.
I don't think I have your green thumb.
Sleep with the Angels Kelli.
You and Amy have much to do in Heaven. I'm sure God knows what beautiful and strong Angels he has.
Keep close, we all need that comfort.

hey mom its sara. i just can't believe that it has been a year since you left me. i will always remember how you looked laying in that bed and when i came in and held your hand i thought everything would be okay until you squeezed my hand and looked up at me and smiled and then you left me standing in that room without you. i still cry almost every day and some days are better thatn others. i have been having a really rough time ever since the 11th. i don't even know why. i just really miss you and i really need you here with me right now. it is so hard going through life without you the rest of my life is going to be hard also. i was talking with jake the other night and he kept asking me questions about you like what you liked to do and stuff and i asked him why he wanted to know so much about you and he said well i am never gonna get the chance to know you so he wanted to know as much about you as he could. he met aunt gerianne aunt robbie and grama when they came up. i really wish he could meet you but i know that you like him after the dream that i had. i really miss you a whole lot and it hadn't sunk in until after the 11th that i would have to go through the rest of my life without you. but i better get going before my health teacher catches me haha i love you and miss you every day!
Love You! love Always your little peanut:)
Hey Mom it's Katy. i miss you alot. We went to Duluth yesterday. We went and visited your nurses too. We gave them shirts, then we went to Olive Garden to eat it is a really good resturant. We went to the mall, me and Sara got some stuff you would of had fun if you could of gone with. We went to younkers and then we found a bunch of breast cancer stuff, we got dad a pink tie, they had a really soft night-gown that you would have liked. love you bye
Hi it is David I miss you a lot I am thinking of you a lot. School is going good it is fun, my teacher is nice. Bye for now, Love David, your "Little Man".
Oh Sweetie what can I say that you don't already know. We all miss you so much, the pain is still there and as strong as the day that God called you home. I miss my 2 hr talks with you so much...but I still have them in my mind and my heart. Guide us all thru our lives and keep in touch as you have been and know that your always in our thoughts, I know God has set you free from pain.. now if you guys could hep us in that area. My memories of you still bring huge smiles to my face, it keeps me going. I Love and miss you! But I know that we will all be together on fine day. xxxxx00000
Kelli Jo, I thought about you ALL day yesterday as you already know it was my mom's birthday and your first year as a Angel of Heaven. Stared at all the fall tree's and how beautiful they are, and wondered what you were doing and thinking about. Fall is my favorite time of the year, crazy me truly think those trees communicate with each other. It's been almost 19 years since I talked to you, but I have thought and talked more about you in the last year that it would have made up for all the time missed between us.
Pink has become a very popular color in our home, my daughters and me have made some new friends "Kelli's Family". Last night when Kasara went to bed she wore your shirt, I said did you know a year ago today Kelli passed away she said isn't that weird that I'm wearing her shirt, she hadn't wore it since the walk in July, she also ironed on breast cancer logo's all over her prep-fest outfit for homecoming Jr's wear blue, I said well whats with the pink logo's she said its for Kelli and one day I'm going to get breast cancer too, so I'm trying to get the word out now, It runs on her dad's side of the family. Miranda has a magnet on her car and a atenna logo too. We talk often about your kids they adore them and David too and Miranda really gets a kick out of Gerianne.
I can't say it enough how glad I am that we were such great friends growing up, and so sorry that we didn't stay in touch. I'm sorry you had to suffer such a horrible disese and was taken from your husband and children so young, life isn't fair nobody will ever know why, but someone had bigger plans for you. My heart aches for your family expecially your children. I know your watching down on them and protecting them. Well I better get going, I hope your enjoying your beautiful wings.
Until next time, take care and "god bless"ed us for giving you to all the those you have touched the ones you have made smile, laugh, loved, created and cried, because without you this world wouldn't have been the same.
It's hard to believe it's been a year since you lost your battle to cancer.
It seems so raw, even now. I guess it will take longer than a year for us to come to terms with loosing you.
By now you know your family came to visit. Not easy for any of them.
It must be painful for you to see their sadness and tears and not be able to comfort them. They feel you around them Hon, we all do. Sometimes, we just need that hug or to hear your voice.
It's hard to understand why God makes the choices He does. I guess it's not for us to know or understand.
We have to stay grounded here on earth and continue the fight for You, Aim and all the others fighting this hard battle. It's the one thing we can do for all of you!
We will all come together again.
Until then, know how much you are loved and missed by so many!
I think You and Aim have been having fun with us. Uncle Bob cannot get over the kitchen light swaying for no apparent reason.
I saw it today too, it made me smile.
Did Grandpa show you guys that trick?
I pray you have peace and serenity Kelli, you have earned it.
We will visit you again, maybe when the spring flowers bloom.
I Love You,
I know everyone says it, but it truly does not feel like a whole year already. I guess we all have not been able to completely grieve losing you because we keep getting hit! It does not lessing losing you. It just makes it so much harder to understand.
We all miss you and think of you everyday!! I know you and Aim have added something pretty special up there. Im sure you guys are the life of the parties!
I love you!! Keep watching over all of us.. We know you do!
Love you Kelli
My Dear Niece
Even though it has been a year since God called you to be with him it almost seems like yesterday. The pain of losing you is still fresh and painful, and still the question of "why?" Perhaps there was few blonde angels and he chose you? Why though? I'm struggling with that question and am trying to understand we will never have that answer.
All of your family is now on their way up to see you - Oh! The pain and heartache!! There are no comforting words for them, the pain is constant along with the tears. I wish there was something we could do to lessen the pain, but again, it's a wish that can't be granted!
I will always keep in my heart your smile and words of comfort to me on the phone the Christmas of 2006. Little did we know what was ahead for all of us.
I would imagine that while we on earth are suffering, heaven has a special day planned for you today. We will celebrate your life as best we can on a day that hurts our entire family!
Rest in peace Kelli - your family needs your wings wrapped around them today! Give them strength that they need so desperately today!!
I love you,
It's hard to believe that a year has come and gone since you left us. We really miss you a lot. Sara stayed home today as she didn't want to deal with all the kids at school trying to comfort her. I took a half a day off from work and her and I went to lunch and just talked. Was nice to just converse with her, I just wish that she'd open up to me more but I guess I can be intimidating. I'll add a couple of more pictures tonight then am taking David and Katy up to Walgreens and then to Walmart. We love you.

My Dear Niece:
It will be one year tomorrow that we lost you and yet it seems like only yesterday. So much pain and so much sorrow this past year that sometimes it just overwhelmes me with saddness.
I am so very proud of your family, they have been through some very tough times, yet they have remained dedicated to your kids, loving them as they have loved you. I know that you are very proud of mom, brother and sister's.
While I know that you and Amy are in a better place, it does not stop us from missing both of you. Someday we will all be together again.
Watch over all of us.
This saturday marks one years since you left us... it still seems like just yesterday. There still is not a day that goes by I dont think of you. I have reminders all over my house that some days I smile at and others I just break down. Sine OCtober is breast cancer awareness month there is so many things out now. I go crazy for pink thats for sure! But of course whenever I buys something I always need to buy 2 so mom has one of the same or she gets mad! Friday we are going to the Rascall Flatts concert just mom and I and I have a feeling it is gonna be hard... We went last year also and it was hard so many songs reminded us of you. THat is a good thing of course it is just painful we cant see you. There is so much I miss... your laugh, your smile, your touch, your voice... everything.. It is still really hard when I see the kids and uncle David I just wait and wait and wait for you to come around the corner. I just don't want to believe you really aren't here. I know life has to go on and it will it's just tough. I just want you to know how much I really do love and miss you. I will be back up to see you sometime soon. WAIT I forgot what i miss the most...YOUR COOKING!!
My Dear Sister Kelli,

I Love You Forever and Ever,Your Sister Robbie(biff)
Honey I/We miss you. Below is our take on your struggle with Cancer and how You and we dealt with it. It'll be a year since you left us but you'll be with us FOREVER.
Kelli was diagnosed with breast cancer the first time in December of 1999 after finding a lump through a self-exam. She had the lump removed and underwent treatment of chemotherapy and radiation before receiving a clean bill of health. Kelli continued to do regular self-breast exams and received mammograms two times a year. She encouraged all women after adolescent age to do the same.
She even taught her daughters how to do self-exams.
The second time Kelli faced cancer was about six years later during the summer of 2006. She had noticed changes to her breast and knew something was wrong.
She learned that Inflammatory Breast Cancer isn’t usually detected through a mammogram or an ultrasound, and that there doesn’t have to be a lump for it to be breast cancer. Symptoms of inflammatory breast cancer include swelling usually sudden, itching, breast pain, nipple retraction or discharge, and changes in appearance including color and texture of the areola.
After finding out that Kelli had this aggressive form of cancer, it felt like the world stopped moving, said Dave and Sara.
That August, Kelli started another fight against cancer — that she was determined to beat. She underwent treatment and seemed to be doing better throughout the winter. In late February, Kelli was experiencing balance problems. She had difficulty standing up and getting out of bed.
Sara remembers on her birthday asking her mom to make a cake with her. It was a special time they shared each year on Sara’s birthday, but Kelli didn’t have the strength to assist.
After bringing Kelli to the doctor in March, they found out that she had cancer of the brain fluid. Again, the world stopped, said Dave, while describing how it felt to hear those words.
That day when the kids came home from school their grandparents were there waiting to bring them to the hospital in Duluth to see their mom.
Sara recalls walking into the room and seeing her mom’s smiling face as Kelli showed her courage and will to fight. Sara wanted to stay the night there, but Kelli was adamant that the kids didn’t miss school.
Kelli spent most of March in the hospital. She would receive two injections of chemotherapy a week to a port that accessed her brain fluid, and a weekly body infusion.
Dave brought Kelli home at the end of March. For the month of April, Kelli spent a lot of time in bed.
One day in May, Sara remembers coming home from school to find her mom cleaning the house, vacuuming and cooking, just like she did before getting sick.
“It was just like a spring flower bloomed,” said Dave. “It was like the flowers that Kelli always tended to. You would’ve never thought anything was wrong with her.”
From May to August, Kelli was doing good. She was able to go for walks, go shopping, plant flowers, and attend school programs. The family was thankful to have that quality time with Kelli, treasuring each moment.
“It’s time that you are never going to get back,” said Dave.
Kelli continued to receive treatment. In September, she had both good and bad days, but started spending more time in bed.
Sara decided to throw Kelli a surprise 39th birthday party. Extended family was there to celebrate. Sara is glad that she had the opportunity. It would be the last one she would share with her.
• • •
On Oct. 8, Kelli was admitted into the hospital. Her oxygen level was at 38 percent and she was struggling for air. The doctors said that Kelli wasn’t expected to live through the night. Family members traveled to be there with her.
Dave said that was one of the toughest times in his 48 years of life having to tell the kids that their mom might pass away. The other time was that day in March when he found out Kelli had brain cancer and there was a real possibility she could die. He had that same conversation with their kids that day.
Sara described the next four days as the longest days of her life. She didn’t leave her mom’s bedside. Sara wasn’t able to eat or sleep.
It was difficult watching as Kelli struggled to breath, yet still holding onto life.
At 11:30 a.m. on Oct. 11, Dave and Sara were by Kelli’s side when she passed.
Kelli’s favorite song, “A Long Trip Alone” by country singer Dierks Bentley came on the radio. Sara also loved the song.
Before the song ended, Kelli opened her eyes looked at Sara and smiled, then looked at Dave and smiled before taking her last breath.
The painful loss was felt by many.
• • •
A few weeks following Kelli’s death, Dave and the kids had a chance to attend the Dierks Bentley concert. Several people from church had gotten them tickets knowing how much it would mean to them. They also received two additional tickets, front row, after the Bentley fan club learned about their loss.
They were given the chance to meet Bentley before and after the concert. The singer acknowledged Sara and later sang “Long Trip Alone.” Before the song, he said it was going out to those who have lost a loved one, then looked over at Sara.
It has been 11 months since Kelli passed away and her presence is still felt.
Along with photos and mementos of Kelli, Dave has added pink ribbons and touches of pink around the house. Pink ribbons are worn to recognize the struggle of those battling breast cancer.
Dave built a bridge of hope that the family pulled in a parade when Kelli was still alive, and placed stones in the shape of the cancer ribbon outside their home. This same symbol can be seen on their wind chime, birdhouses, mailbox and humming bird feeder.
Dave is currently turning an old truck into the “Pink Lady” Cancer Crusher which he plans to drive at a parade in Nashwauk next year. Dave said that it’s part of the healing process.
Dave got a tattoo in memory of his wife and keeps his head shaved in honor of all the cancer patients.
Dave and the kids each wear a chain around their neck featuring a photo of Kelli with an inscription on the back, “In loving memory of.” Kelli’s warm smile and eyes radiate from that photo — a reminder of her unwavering love. The photo, hanging from that chain, rests near their hearts, which is where they keep their beloved Kelli.
We Love you and always will. Love yor Husband, Sara, Katy & Little man.
My Dear sister Kelli,Well on the 11th of oct will be on year since you left us.I want you to know that i don't need a special day for a tear to fall,You know how much I miss you.growing up you i see so much of you in the kids and i thank god for that,remeber when me you robbie were sitting at your kitchen table one night and you said lets give each other nick names we said o.k..You are our fluffers,robbie is biff and mine stuffers and we gave david duddy.sitting up late at night i will alawys treasure we would all laugh so much.when you would make fudge you would give daivd our brother the pan and all we did was laugh,the good times when we were all together.I want you to know how special you are to me and always will be.And no one will ever take that away from us,it still hurts kelli without you here,but i know you know are hurt.I feel your little signs to me I will never forget our trips to walmart the fun that we had in that store will always remain in my heart.You were the best bananna bread maker in the world,you would make us all are own little pan.You even made me a mickey mouse pan cake how special that was to me.You were the best mother and wife in the world.like the poem said our family chain has been broken but one day it will link back.I will keep the memories for ever,I want you to know that you were not only my little sister you were also my best friend.I will always have you in my heart.Kelli I miss and love you so very much.Well gotta go I will be back soon.
Love, your sis Gerianne(Stuffers)
It was an emotional day for us today.
We came up to visit you for the first time since the funeral.
It was so hard and still so very painful. We are still at a loss as to why the young are loosing the battle to this horrible disease.
We all just stood there and cried.
Your Brother struggled so much.
He left you some very beautiful roses. It was sooo hard for him.
Aunt Deb & Uncle Rog left roses in wood, they want them to stay so Deb didn't go for the real stuff.
Uncle Bob and I left you pink/lavendar Mums & a peace rock with pink ribbons on it. I wanted you to have a little of both, mostly, we want you to have peace.
I hope you liked everything.
Your Birthday balloon and butterfly are still there.
We went to visit Dave and Sara, the 2 youngest weren't home.
Again, painful, you weren't waiting for us like you always did. Another milestone for us to overcome. Oh Kelli, how I miss sitting at that beautiful table chatting. It was like a magnet for everyone. The times we would gather and laugh & catch up on family news. Mostly, we would laugh. I could almost hear the echo of your laughter.
Dave and the kids are making their life without you. We know how hard it is for them. But it's something only they can do. We will be there, should they need our help, anytime!
There is no guide book on how to deal with grief and loss. We just handle it in our own way. Something will trigger a memory, and the tears flow. Other memories will make us laugh. Either way, it is the memories we hold dear. Happy or sad, it keeps us connected to you.
We walked on the Bridge of Hope. On our way to it, Sara found a small snake! Needless to say, Aunt Deb and I decided not to venture too far after that. (darn city slickers) Your oldest was even barefoot! Dave just picked it up and tossed it to safety.
Well Sweetie, I just wanted to tell you we had a good day visiting.
I would so love to see your wings Kelli, please visit me in my dreams.
I Love and Miss You Very Much!
It's been almost a year now and there's not a day that goes by that I don't think about you. I see you everyday in our children and photos that are still up. I think that I'm finally starting to come to terms with God as I finally took communion last week at Church for the first time since you passed. I'm still not quite there yet but the Family Fun Day that we had in your memory was the first step. Still have shirts left over and have been distributing to those who lives you touched. We Don't Need A Special Day is a poem that we got from your support group at the Grand Rapids walk and it emphsizes how we'll always feel. I'll sign off for now but will always Love & Miss you.
Love Your Husband, Dave.

I am so sorry I have not written in such a long time. SO much going on. But I'm sure you already know that.
I Thanked Amy the other day for holding Sierrah for me. Now I need to thank you. I know you were right there holding her and heloing her. THANK YOU! I already knew that Sierrah was going to be something special on Oct. 11th. It was so hard be excited that day for my ultrasound, but when they said "its a girl", I KNEW it was because of you.
I know I don't have to ask you to watch over the family, I know you do! Your little ones just amaze me. Little Katy was such an angel at Amys funeral. She made a big impact on me that day. I know you are so proud of all of them. They are ALL incredible people, and I am so proud to call them family. You are so loved and it shows. Happy Be-lated Birthday!!

Hey Aunt Kelli I wrote in here on your birthday but it didn't get put in so I am sorry it's late but I really did try on your birthday.. We were up to see you for the family fun day and celebrate for the BIG 4-0 for ya! It was really really hard but we got through. The hardest part was stopping by to see you but not be able to hug or talk to you... This is still hitting so hard for me... I have been thinking a lot of all our memories. and how every summer you took me in for 2 weeks and we had a ton of fun together from making photo albums, to dressing me for the parades, to listening to some of my classic moments... " Why don't we just walk"?!?!?!? Remember that on?!? ahh haa! The best though.. ours and Melissa's song! Could ya would ya!So I think of these times and laugh and smile because I am so grateful for them but then i frown and cry because i stopped coming up and i should have continued. And I should have come up more with mom I guess i was selfish and wanted to do m own things all the time... but I do miss you a ton and we will be coming back up in a few weeks. i MISS AND LOVE YOU ALWAYS
My dearest sister kelli

I Love You,MoM xxoo
Well Kelli your the BIG 40 today! I hope your enjoying your 1st Birthday in heaven. I know your family was having a party/fundraiser this weekend in your honor, which i was unable to go to. I'm also sure this is very hard weekend for everyone close to you. I seen your entire family when they celebrated your mom's 70th, there were a lot of tears, and stories, and some laughs from the stories too. Sarah brought another one of your year books for me to look at, I just can't find mine anywhere she asked about a old flame who was mentioned in your year book LOL. I enjoyed visiting with David, your sister's and your mom, she has a awesome memory, we talked about things you and I did, I really want to get together with her and talk more about the past. Katie stayed at our house one night when the kids were in town, she is a cutie pie and we enjoyed her company very much. After she left Chris said I already miss her. Ran into one of our friends from High School at the state fair was talking about you and then my phone rang, it was Miranda she said mom your never gonna believe who I'm with right now, I said who and she said the Hardy gang. I told Paula I can't believe it but Kelli's family is here. David brought the kids to the city to see Dirks Bently at the fair, Sarah was with her cousins so I didn't see her but Katie gave us the BIGGEST hug, then she went off with Miranda and Kasara until the concert started. Kasara said she was a blast to go on rides with they were cracking up the whole time. Chris finally got to meet David, I knew he would like him, they like a lot of the same things, seen David's tattoo I loved it, him Gerianne and Holly's are all beautiful and very unique. We even got to see David sing Karaoke at the lite FM stand, little David I think was bored he's not much of a city boy, but once little Matt got there I think he was happy to see him. Sorry I wasn't able to visit this weekend, were going to try to come up to visit you on Oct. 11th, on your 1 year anniversary as a ANGEL in heaven.
Until next time, keep watching over your family and sending them sign's.
I just wanted to wish you a Happy 40th Birthday. Not the way we planned it to be, but God had other plans.
You are always in my thoughts Kelli, I see you when I wake up, and before I go to sleep.
I am so proud of your Mom, it was a hard decision for her to make, but she came to see you. Another painful milestone. This family has had far too many of those.
I hope you are proud of all of us, we are doing our very best to keep moving forward.
I Love You Sweetheart!
My dear Niece -
Happy 40th Kelli!!
And also Happy Anniversary!

There are moments I am grateful I had an aunt and god mother like you and think of all the good times we had together... when Mel and I came up for two weeks in the summers... could ya would ya ain't ya gonna was our song! WHen the Corsica broke down and I thought we should walk! When Saras diaper was too dirty I woudn;t change it! When we went to the parades... so many good times that make me smile. Then I think of the hard times that I am still experiencing without you here... and the guilt I feel for not coming up in the summers and passing up when mom came up I stayed home... Not only when you were sick but anytime. We always had fun styaing up til odd hours of the morning playing games and laughing. What I would give for one more day with you... Saturday Matt and I are heading up our first stop will be to see you and I am sure you willl know when get there.. I'll have a box of kleenex in the hand. We will be celebrating your birthday and remembering all the good times although I know it's going to be hard. This will be Granny's first trip up since you left us but we wil take care of her. I am going to go for now but will see you Saturday. I MISS AND LOVE YOU SO MUCH!!!!!!

So i will get back to you before than,I miss and Love you so.

Hello my dear niece!!
Oh Kelli - - there is so much pain for our family, so many "1st's" coming up - so many tears being shed.
It doesn't seem to be registering that you and Amy are no longer with us. Neither of you asked for much, only to live a long life enough to watch your babies grow up .. Doesn't seem too be too much to ask for, but then again, the final decision was not up to me or any of our family members.
I know you are looking down and keeping close those that are in terrible pain. Are your wings large enough for all of us? I know Mom, your brother and sisters will be up to see you this weekend for your birthday. For your Mom? This will be another day of excruciating pain she is so trying to cope with daily!! Oh, how I ache for all of them. Your siblings need your help in a very big way too. A true testament on how much you were so loved and so very missed!! I pray we will all gain some strength to get us through this most painful time!!
Uncle Rog & I will be coming to see you with Uncle Bob & Aunt Chris in a few weeks. I'm sure you will hear our sniffling long before we get there.
I must go for now, but know you are in my daily thoughts and I pray to you to help with many things!!
Please give Amy a hug & kiss for me and tell her I love her! Enjoy all your time with each other and please keep us wrapped within your wings!
I love you Kelli!
Love Aunt Deb
Hi Auntie! Russ and I will be going up to see you next weekend I know that it is going to be very hard. I am sure that you heard the news that Russ and I are getting married next year. I m excited but at the same time getting stressed out. I wish you were here so that we could go shopping for it I know that you were really good with those kinds of things. But the girls are going to wear pink in your honor. It is still very hard for me. I know that you are around all of us. I miss you so much! Well sweetheart I guss I better get going. Kepp your arms around us like you always do. Love you very much. See you soon.
I thought of you a great deal today.
We had the 2 babies Baptized and I felt like 2 special souls were missing.
I know how you loved that kind of gathering.
Reality is not always a good thing, I felt it today very strongly. I had a great deal of trouble just keeping my focus.
All I could really see today, was a blonde and dark haired angel watching over those babies. I trust You and Aim will watch over them.
Your family is having a birthday party/Anniversay for you on the 13th. Sadly, we cannot be there to help celebrate your life. But, Uncle Bob and I are planning a trip up to visit you the week or two after. I so need to talk to you Kelli.
Your Mom is making her first trip up North since she lost you. Please Kelli, watch over her and wrap her in your arms.
Gerrianne gave me a picture in a lighted frame of you and Amy at her benefit. It's my favorite one ever!
You both looked so radiant!
I'm adding it to your guestbook so everyone can see you two.
I keep that picture/frame close by me with my Kelli/Amy bears and flameless candle. I feel you guys are watching over me, it helps on those hard days.
We celebrated your Mom's 70th Birthday. It was a good time but the empty spot was hard to miss. It hurt so many, but they did what they do Hon, they smiled and thought of you.
Look for Uncle Bob and AC when we make our journey to visit you.
We will be the ones with heavy hearts and lost souls.
I Love You!

Love your sisGerianne:)
I was pretty down today thinking about you and the fact it has been 10 long emotional months since you left us. As I always say there honestly still isn't a day that I don't think about you. And how much I wish I could come see you or even just talk to you. It doesn't seem like it has been this long but it sure isn't getting easier. Same ol thing going on for me. Workin and payin bills... all the fun stuff! The puppies are getting huge I just can't believe how fast they grow. The flowers I planted for you are beautiful and blooming like crazy! The kids are down for the week so I am off tomorrow to spend the day with them. Of course I wanted to go in the pool but it's supposed to rain... go figure! Melissa and Russ set their wedding date for next year which is really exciting for them. Tommy and I will be there someday. But it really stinks to know you can't be my personal attendant like I always wanted. I know you will be with me and make sure my day goes as I could want it but I wish you could help me get ready and see me walk down the isle. But the wedding isn't even in the budget but soon enough it will be. Well I need to go give my babies a bath so I will go for now but just remember YOU WILL NEVER BE FORGOTTEN AND I MISS YOU AND LOVE YOU SO MUCH.
hey mom its sara. the last time i wrote to you i was a t work with dad but me david and katy are spending the week up here at aunt gerianne's. as you already know we did the cancer walk in coleraine it was very difficult for me and everyone that was there with us. i found and took pictures of every bag that had your name on it. then we all hung out at the hotel afterwards. i am glad to hear that michelle and her daughters had a blast. then just last saturday me dad david and katy came down for grandma's birthday party. it was so good to see everybody. mark zach and cody are hanging in there too and i'm sure that they had a tough time at the party without amy just as i had a tough time without you. i am glad that mark and dad got time to talk on saturday he needs that. i also brought your sophmore yeartbook for michelle to look at and boy did she enjoy that. she told me stories about you and her when you guys were in school. i love hearing them. i could listen to michelle and any body for days tell me stories about you because in many many many ways i am alot like you were in high school. for example you used to eat doritos and drink mountain dew almost everyday and so do i. i walked around at uncle davids visiting with everybody and before i left to go to aunt robbies i just broke down. i miss you so much and having to sit by myself and not having you there to talk to was very very difficult for me. i was crying as i was giving everybody hugs getting ready to leave and it meant alot to me when zach gave me a hug and said he was glad to see me and that things will be ok. i wish that me and zach were closer. i wish we didn't live so far apart and that we got to talk more because i know he misses his mom just as much as i miss you. i went to aunt robbies and we stayed up til after midnight and looked at pictures of you and laughed and talked and of course went to walmart. well i better get going david wants me to go swimming with him so i better. i love you and think about you every single day. love always your little peanut

Dearest Kelli, As you already know my daughters and I came up to do the walk for the first time, it was very inspirational expecially when they lit all the the bags there must have been 10,000.00, we will continue to go every year now. I visited your grave twice with Gerianne & your brother David, we went to your house walked on the bridge David made for you, what a wonderful life you had in Nashwawk. David is making all kinds of stuff in your honor, you were also honored at the walk too. David and the kids were given a really nice framed poem which he struggled with when he read it, David talked very highly of you and about your fight, and how cancer sucks. I don't think there was a dry eye the croud, including David & the kids.
I was happy to see Sarah enjoying some fun time with her friends, she really needs that, she showed me her newly painted room she is a big country music fan, my kind of girl! Miranda and Kasara took Katie and little David swimming and then we made a wal-mart run, little David talked my ear off in the car, he sure likes wrestling.
Katie looks more and more like you when we were kids, and she was very picky with the swim suits she was trying on, she reminded me of you and how picky you were with your clothes. When the two little ones went to bed they talked Gerianne's ear off, they both talked about how they fold their own clothes now and little David was sure proud of himself because he can make his bed all by himself now, as I layed in bed listening I was grinning from ear to ear. Gerianne praised them and told them how proud you would be of them. I know you are so proud of your entire family I know it was hard for your brother, sister, David and the kids but they hung in there strong. Oh and WOW your a popular lady everyone knows you and David too, I wore a shirt with your picture on it and a woman just started talking to me about you and how her daughter always did the Nashwauk walk with you.
I asked my girls on the way home what they thought and they both said it was almost like they already new you, and they just love the kids. The kids will be down for your mom's birthday they are staying in town for a week, me and the kids are going to see them on your moms birthday and maybe see if we can visit at Gerianne's one day during the week and swim.
I think they enjoyed the pictures I brought of us from high school. I wish we could have stayed in touch through the years, and I could have been there for you when you were fighting the biggest fight of your life. I want to say thank you for being my friend growing up. I will write again soon, but for now I'll sign out the way we use to finish our letters to one another for good old times sake. B/F/F. Love yah Kelli
P.S. Keep watching over your family they need you.
Hello my Dear Niece:
David stopped over last week and not surprising to hear it's apparent the walk was very emotional for your family this year, but we certainly didn't expect anything less did we? You were and are so very loved and missed!!
Time sure does pass quickly, and yet I can see your smile as if it was yesterday. Mom & I try to call each other once a week and her pain of losing you is still so very fresh! I'm wondering if you could just put your arms around her to give her some comfort?
I hope you are at peace and enjoying those beautiful wings you have earned on earth!
I love you very much Kelli!!
Hey sis,Well I guess yu liked your flower'shey,I even brought your old friend michelle and her daughter's up with me.She wanted to come and and talk to you.We did the walk I know you were walking with us cause i could feel you with us.It was a hard thing for all of us,David and the kid's talked a bit,than your friend's all did a poem for you it was so beautiful.The walk was great I even won something this year can you beleive it,and michelle will be walking with us every year know.It has been nine month's and it does not seem that long it is so fresh to me,I can't hear your laugh or see your smile but I know your with me.You help me get through my hard day's.We are going to have the kid's come down for a week before they go back to school,they are excited for that and i know you would.well honey i better get going just want you to know how the walk was.I will be up soon again to bring you more of your favorite flower's o.k..I Love and Miss you so very much.
Love Your Sis Gerianne
Hello My Blonde Angel,
You have been on my mind so much lately. I look at your pictures everyday.
I won't be doing the walk up north this year. I was hoping to, but things just did not work out that way.
I have precious memories of walking with you last year. We had such a great time. Too bad we couldn't convince Robbie to take that kitten. We sure did try, didn't we?
I knew it was the last time I would walk with you. So did you. That made the day and night all the more precious to me. I so loved sitting up chatting in your living room. We had such a great time. Gerianne had us all laughing so hard. Robbie was snoring away. You, me and Gerianne were the last ones to go to bed. We had a hard time settling down, didn't we? Laughter does that.
It was a beautiful time (and weather) and I cherish it all. You were so happy and laughing. Even when your legs weren't stong enough, you hung in there like a champ.
Deany and I walked proudly by your side. Your Mom did great, your Hubby was great, and the kids were by your side.
Katy and I are "buddies", she is so cute, I just want to snuggle with her. Sara breaks my heart. Being the oldest, she feels the need to be "Mom". Her eyes hold the wisdon of an adult. The little guy is so dang cute and cuddly! The Hubby is building things in your memory. He has done an awesome job Kelli. It's hard to raise children alone, but he is doing it!
I wish I could wipe away the pain I see in all of them.
I know you watch over them Kelli, they need that.
You must be so proud of them. Even though they hurt so much from loosing you. They were there for Mark, the Boys and the Family when Amy joined you. It was so hard for them and your family. Yet, there they were, lending support and love. Only they knew the pain of loosing a Mom, Wife, Daughter & Sister far too soon.
It was so nice to see and hug them. All of them! I silently told you, I would hug them for you. So, I did.
I am walking with you in my heart Kelli, I always will.
I pray so hard that a cure will be found. Someday, these guest books will not be needed for such young souls who fought such a hard battle.
Peace with the Angels
I Love You Kelli/Kiddo,
I Always Will
Hey Aunt Kelli,
It's me again! I needed to tell you about my day.. So the last patient I saw today was getting a full set of braces, i brought her back we started talking everything was great. As soon as I looked in her mouth her teeth looked exactly like yours. That was the first thing I thought of then as we proceeded, she talked and laughed kinda like you. She is also tall and thin just like you and had a gorgeous face just like you! So you were running through my head the whole appointment and it made me smile, it was as though you were right there with me. So as all these memories were strolling through my head and your face was all I could see and your laugh is all I could hear, I finished the appointment and the day. Then got into the car. Driving home I was listening to your cd Sara made me. And I broke down... all the memories strolled through again and I wanted to hear your voice and your laugh and see your beautiful face with the eyelashes I was always was envious of (you know how I am with my mascara!) but then I realized I can't.. and that is still hard for me to accept. It has been nine months although it really doesn't seem that long. Not one day goes by that I don't think of you it is still so fresh. I know that you are watching over us and are here when we need you but this woman was such a replica of the great Aunt and God mother you were. It really did make me smile then it made me really sad. No one will ever be as incredible as a person as you. I just wanted to share the experience with you! I am not making it up for the walk this year, I now it will be tough for the family but they will make it through and I know you will be walking with them. Mom will be coming by to see you and bring your favorite flowers and I will make it up there to see you too. Otherwise all is well here the house is coming along we got a lot of yard work to do still though. The puppies are getting huge and of course they are VERY spoiled! Matt is doing great also. Please keep watching over us we need our beautiful angel. I will stop back soon. I MISS AND LOVE YOU SO MUCH.
Hi Auntie. Just wanted to let you know that Russ and I are coming up on friday with dad to be there to support something that I know was very important to you. I will also be bringing you some flowers and I will be talking to you. I know that you will be with us.

Well my dear I will see you on firday. Love and miss you lots!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! XOXOXOXO

When I see Uncle David and my beautiful cousins I still wait to see you, I break down everytime at the fact you won't be walking through the door.. I know you are in a better place and out of your pain and for that I am thankful. I knew this would be a struggle but I never thought it would be this hard. I have several reminders of you through out the house and sometimes they make me smile other times they make me sad. I know you are watching over us and that definately makes me smile. I better get going now but I will stop back soon. I love you and miss you SO much.

Hello my dear niece
As I was sitting here I knew I had to write you and let you know that I am convinced you met Amy at the pearly gates and showed her around.
The two of you have left us with the most loving memories, and the best gift of all is we have your children to love!!
It is a very difficult and painful time for our family right now as we lost 2 brave, strong and beautiful women much too soon.
You would be very proud of your family and David and the kids Kelli - they found the strength to attend Amy's wake and funeral even though their own pain is still raw. And how they were at our side in our time of need is nothing short of "loving family"!!
I will visit you again soon, so take care of my baby girl and enjoy your time with her!
Love Aunt Deb

I hear your flowers are doing well.
That is such a warm feeling.
Your family is doing the best they can without you Kelli. I think of you everyday and pray to you every night.
Please Honey, guide Amy on her new journey. I know you will help her any way you can.
You are kindered spirits who fought a long and strong battle. You both are our Warriors.
Only you and Amy can understand the love and fight you both had.
I will do what I can Honey, for you and Amy. I will watch over my family and help any way I can.
I know you are close by, I can feel it.
I pray that You and Amy will be together with all those who have gone before us.
I know in my heart we will all meet again and the chain will link together.
Until that time, please know how much you are missed and loved.
Take her hand and guide her to that peace that I so pray you have found.
We hear you Kelli, we feel you around us.
I Love You So Very Much,

My Pink Angel,I Love You Robbie xoxoxoxoxo(biff)
You have been busy.
All our prayers to you for your family did not go on deaf ears, did they?
You are so close to everyone, I wish they could see you as well as feel you near.
Life seems empty these days, I look to the sky for that eagle. It reminds me of you and your freedom.
Keep close to them Kelli, your not there to talk to or hug, that is a hurt that will never go away.
Remember the rose bushes I planted last year? They bloomed all summer for you and Amy. Well, I just don't think I have the knack like you did.
They aren't doing well this year. I may have to try something else. It bothers me because I planted those for my girls. Maybe you guys want something else? I'll work on that!
I know you like blue (hard to find a rose bush that color) so I may have to go with pink. I hope that's OK with you.
I miss our chats and letters Kelli. I miss planning a trip to visit you.
We still plan to visit Dave and the kids, but I'll have a hard time going to visit you.
I pray you have found peace Sweetie.
I Love You Dearly,

Been over to grams alot. We get your messages. She is doing okay you know the best she can. I think she feels a little bit better knowing that you are around. Dad I know is having a really hard time. I don't really know what to say to him but I know that he misses you. I miss you very much. I am working on getting a pink picture frame for the apartment. I have you up on the bar mantel with candels and an angel that gram gave me. I miss you alot but I know that when the sun comes out that you are shedding your light on all of us. When I was at grams last week saw clouds in the shape of an angel with a halo and pretty big wings I knew it had to be you looking down on all of us. Well guess I better get going have to do laundry. I Love you and miss you so much. Keep dad in your arms cause i know that he needs it. Hugs&Kisses XOXOXOXOX

Hi Kelli, I hope you had a wonderful Mother's day! I know you had to of been feeling all the love from your family during the walk yesterday. I know you are very proud of them all, this was my first walk it was so amazing, and it will not be my last. Your husband was the entertainer of the group, he kept everyone's spirts up and kept us all in line, banners & pictures of you were carried with alot of pride & love. Your sister's & Sara struggled a bit emotionally I know it was hard for them as it was for everyone else too. I went to Gerianne's for little David's birthday, everywhere I looked there was something pink or pictures of you, I enjoyed talking with your mom about old time she has a good memory, you can tell she misses you dearly. Sara brought your 9th grade yearbook, (Thank you Sara) brought back some fun memories. I read what I wrote to you that year, I hoped you would find someone who would treat you well because you deserved the best! It's plain to see that did happen for you, your husband is a wonderful man, he is doing a great job with your children and they all seem to be doing well, I can tell he misses you very much thankfully he's a very strong man emotionally, well I should say he does a good job of hiding his sorrow. I asked David if I could come up this summer and walk on the bridge he built for you he said yes. I can't wait to visit your resting place and see the wonderful life you had in Nashwauk. Your doing a great job of watching over your family and giving them strength everyday, they are lucky to have you as thier guardian angel. God Bless, Michelle
hey mom i am just writing to tell you happy late mother's day. we did the walk yesterday and it was very very very hard for me. i almost made it the whole 4 miles without cruing but wouldn't you know the last mile i cried and cried. i looked over at the sign uncle david was carrying and i saw the picture of me and you when we had christmas at uncle david's that year and that made me cry even more. then they had a hug your mother corner and i cried there too because you weren't there for me to hug. we got done and we walked the mall and stuff. we had about 50 people in our group and there was over 50,000 people that did the walk! i couldn't believe it. thanks for clearing up the sky yesterday too. we all were hoping that it wouldn't rain and it didn't. david had a lot of parites too and he was really tired out and i know that he missed you alot. well mom i should get going. i just wanted to let you know how things went for me yesterday. i miss you everyday and i love you very much. i will write again soon

Today is Mother's Day .. and there are 3 children who will not be able to spend it with their Mom. Please wrap your arms around them today, including your Mom, Sisters, Brother and of course David. It is a very difficult time for all of us knowing how much you fought to the very end for them.
We went to Gerianne's yesterday for little David's birthday. You could almost feel the "great pretend" from everyone, trying to make it a good day for him. I'm sure though he will be going shopping quite soon ... money seemed to be the best gift for him this year.
Take care of all the flowers and plants up there, and please keep us wrapped in your arms!
I love you Kelli,

Sure doesn't seem like it has been 6 months since we've lost you, but the pain sometimes makes time stand still.
I'll bet you had quite a smile when you saw Uncle Dan visit you didn't you? It is becoming quite an adjustment when we lose a loved one, and even though we try our best, some days get very trying and emotional.
It sounds like David is doing as well as he can with the kids, and oh Kelli! The birdhouse he made is so pretty!! We are looking forward to seeing them on Mother's day as our family will walk in your memory and in honor of Amy. Keep your arms around her my dear niece, she needs your strength right now.
Spring is almost here and I can imagine you are getting ready to plant some beautiful arrangements up there - keep the grounds beautiful to match your ever existence.
I love you Kelli and hope you have found the peace and health you so deserve. Know that your fight was not in vain.
my dearest kelly jo
i am so happy i was able to come see you when i came home.your babies are all doing good,david has done a wonderful job ,but i can see they miss you very much,as we all do.you are loved and missed so much.but some day we will all be together.i knew you were with us that day and all i could do was smile knowing you were there.well my baby will chat to you soon.love uncle dan... xxxooo

I still miss talking to you on the phone, but trust me I talk to you often in my heart and in my head. It always makes me smile and feel better.

We all miss you very much. Sara's a big help around the house and I've probably been alittle too hard on her. I'm doing the best that I can and part of the problem is that winter doesn't seem to want to go away and we're all feeling cooped up. David and I are building some Bird Houses that we're hoping to sell at the Greenhouse this year. He's also entering 1 in a contest to see if he can win a "Gameboy" or something like that. We'll also be doing the Mothers Day walk at the MOA. Our litlle man has his Golden Birthday this year of which we'll celebrate 2 times once at home and then at Gerianne & John's. I miss holding you and being there for you. The house at times seems so empty. The kids are a blessing as they keep me strong but I do have my moments. I tried to sing "Life ain't always Beautiful" by Gary Alan the other night but didn't get through the 1st verse without getting choked up. I know that you're watching over us and we'll ALWAYS LOVE YOU. Love your husband.
hey mom its sara again. i just wanted to let you know that i have been thinking about you alot lately and miss you every day. last night i was looking through my old photo albums that you put together for me and i was litsening to george's new song called i saw god today and i cried because i miss you so much right now. i was up almost all night and i wanted to call aunt robbie or aunt gerianne or holly and just cry with them but i didn't. i think that i was scared. i am in class right now and he gave us a free day to do whatever on the internet and i immediatly thought about you and i wanted to tell you how i have been feeling lately. i missyou sooooooooo much that words can't even say. when i am home alone i go in your room and sit on your end of the bed and look at all the pictures and things that are there. when i am really feeling lonely i spray your favorite perfume in my room and i sit there and think about when you and dad would be getting ready to go out and you would always be the last one ready and then at the last minute you would put your favorite perfume on, i believe it is called rapshire. i love the smell of it and whenever i smell it i always think of you. i love you so much and i wish that you could be here with me. i think about you all day every day.well i should get going the bell is going to ring soon and i have to go and check out dierks bentley's website and see what has been going on. i love you sooooo much and i will try to write soon. love you mom
love always, your little twiggy
Hey Aunt kelli,
First off I wanted to tell you Tommy, Matt and I got 2 puppies! They are German Shepard/Lab mix. Never thought I would own a dog let alone 2!! But I love them! So now in this house I have three people, two puppies and FOUR cats!! Needless to say it's busy over here! Mom and dad flew out to Mexico last night.. I'm so jealous! Well just thought I would give you the update on us and let you know how much I still think about you and miss you.. It just hasn't got much easier,, there are so many memories and things that make me think of you but it's a good thing. You definitely enlightened our lives and now we are lucky enough to have you watch over us. We will be back up to see you soon. I love you and miss you like crazy.
Hey mom. things are going ok. uncle dan and uncle david were up on wednesday and we visited at the house for a while and we went to the cemetary because uncle dan wanted to see you. then we went to the dairy queen and talked some more. Oh mom guess what. i made chocolate chip cookies on tuesday and i didn't burn any and they turned out just like yours. we are also doing the mothers day walk at the mall of america too. I know that that wasn't your favorite one but i'm walking for you. but i got to run talk to you soon. i love you and miss you and think about you constantly. love sara
I just wanted to let you know that you are always in my heart and mind.
I hear you had a visitor? Uncle Dan came to visit you, Dave & the kids.
He so needed to be there Kelli. I'm sure you already knew that huh? I am glad he made it to you. I'm sure you were there with him the whole time.
Your Mom told me your wings are growing. I have no doubt that you are one beautiful angel. You were beautiful in life, so you must be gorgeous in Heaven.
Didn't like those pink flowers huh? Mom said you wanted the blue.
It's such a warm feeling to know you are close by your family.
I have added more pictures to this album. It never seems enough for us.
I love to see the pictures of you. We all do.
Please stay close to all of them Kiddo. It's a hard road they are on.
I will always love you, and keep you close in my heart.
Aunt kelli, just wanted to stop since i was thinking about you. i was just talking to mom the other day about some pics from when i was a lil guy with you, i cherish them. and how i use to sit and yell at all the ladies walking by, guess some things never change. you and grandma probably still laugh about it. also thought i would let you know that dad, uncle david, little david and i got to finally go to a wild game it was alot of fun. the wild won 2-0 i printed out some pics of us so lil guy never forgets it. sara and katy hung out with mom, sure they did they famous wally run or something. well hope everything is well up there and keep an eye out for us down here, you know i need it. ha ha
Hi My Love,
At school and I was thinking of you. Grandma came over for Easter. Aunt Robbie had pictures of you. Alot from christmas at Dads house. Man that was a good time. Grandma had a hard time this year but we were there for her. I think she is doing better cause she knows the messages. Dad is still taking it hard. He really doesn't talk too much. But I understand. We all miss you alot! I felt the sunshine today and felt your warmth. But just thought I would write to you cause I was thinking about you as I always do. I miss you so much. But have to go to class now so I will be back to write in here again. Love and miss you lots!
The kids and I survived another Holiday, we went to Elsie & Arnolds had a good dinner. Last year at this time we were at SMDC in Duluth where you were getting 2 brain infusions/week for the brain fluid cancer plus 1 body infusion for the breast cancer. I brought you home on 3/29/07 to recover and by early May you blossomed into the beautiful lady that I married. April 07, We enjoyed a fully catered Easter Meal from GoodTime Pizza that was bought by our good friends Rod & Lori Thompson. Pastor Karl and Janet came out and gave you communion after church and they stayed for dinner.
Christmas 07 was a hard time, I always appreciated all the time you spent writing cards and shopping. Our card this year was of Sara, Katy, David, Me and Dierks Bentley. The picture was of us all on his tour bus after the concert he put on in Duluth. Sara still gets fired up when she talks about that day now she's been patiently waiting for him to write her back. I'm trying to get things set up for our son's Golden B-Day this year, we'll probably have 2 parties one up here and one down at John & Gerianne's, then we're all off to the Mothers Day Walk at the MOA.
Lots of other things happening lately but I'll write in more later. Love you and miss you tons. Your Husband.

Sara and family,

But honey stay strong like you are and dont be afraid to cry and let your feelings out. i had a couple friends in the past couple of months lose there mothers. i know i havent been thru what you have been thru but i am here to help if you need it. stay strong (like you are) and keep your head up.
(Michelle Tacheny's daughter)
Kelli, Since your passing not a day goes by where I don't think about you and wonder why didn't we stay in touch all these years. I thought about your family everyday and was heartbroken that your children lost their mom at such a young age. I know our biggest fear is dying before our children grow up. I wanted to reach out to David and the kids but didn't know how, I decided to have necklaces made for them with your picture on them and mailed them a few weeks ago. Today I met Robbie at MaMa's to talk about old times and look at pictues of you. I even seen Gerianne and Holly the last time I seen Holly I think she was 4. When I came into the resturant to my suprise there was your husband and your children waiting to meet me. Well needless to say David's still as Handsome as ever, your children are amazing and beautiful. Little David looks just like his daddy, Katy resembles you alot and has a beautiful smile and a cute giggle. Sara my gosh is a spitten image of you it was so surreal, It was like I wanted to take her home and talk about the good old times. I had a wonderful time with all of them. Robbie gave me some pictures of you, you haven't changed a bit, still pretty as ever! David and the kids gave me a card, which I will put next to my memorbeilia of you and Jackie on my desk at work. On my way home I made my daughter drive by your house on Marion Street, we drove up Maryland by the SA that we use to go to all the time and even went past the apt Gerianne lived at on the corner of Maryland and Edgerton, while pointing these places out to Miranda Trace Adkins new song was playing on the radio "Your Gonna Miss This" here's how it goes. "Your gonna miss this your gonna want this back your gonna wish these days hadn't gone by so fast. These are some good times, so take a good look around you might not know it now but your gonna miss this!". Kelli how true can this be! Well I better get going have to get up in a few hours! I'll be back to chat again.
As the weekend was ending you were constantly in my thoughts, perhaps it's nearing the time you & your family found out there was to be no cure for you?
Your family is doing the best they can even though the link in the family has been broken, another link to the chain is gone. It's never easy to lose such a loved family member - NEVER!!
I know you have been busy with quite a few prayers coming your way from us here on earth! I also know with your detemination you had when you were with us that you will do what you can to give us inner strength to cope.
I love you Kelli and want you to know you are never far from our hearts and thoughts.
For now, thank you for helping us get through some tough roads lately!
Love and miss you,
Hi Aunt Kelli. Guess what I think that you will be happy to know that Russ and I will be moving out on our own in about a month. I told Grandma and she said you know your Aunt would be at Wal-Mart shopping. Grandma is ok I see her alot but just thought that you would be happy to know that I will be on my own soon. It is time for me to start my own life. But I miss you and Love you Lots think about you all the time. Well I will be back here soon. Love you Lots xoxoxoxoxoxoxoxox
As always, you are in our thoughts. It looks like the kids and Dave are trying to move forward. Not an easy task considering the spark in their lives is gone.
I know you are watching over all of them. I ask God every night to let them all feel you close by.
I hope you know that the kids are in great, loving hands. The family has been there for them as well as Dave.
Dave has a hard job, he has to be Mom and Dad. I think he does well all things considered.
As you know, you're Mom, Sisters, Brother, Niece's & Nephew love spending time with the kids. They are never alone with that loving family close by.
You probably already know, but we have 2 new babies in the family.
Griffin was born in December. He was very sick in January. He is fine now. Makes me think you had a loving hand in that?
Sierrah was born in February. She is healthy, happy & beautiful. You would laugh watching Allie with her new Sister.
For some reason, I look at them, and I think of you. Not sure why?
Maybe because of the impact you had on so many lives. Or, it could be I so loved to watch you with your babies. You gave them so much Kelli, they use that everyday. All the things you taught them, it is with them always.
Or, just the fact that I love you and miss you so much. That will never change.
Thank you for watching over Uncle Bob, I asked for your help, and you gave it.
Thank you Kelli for all the wonderful memories. You are forever in our lives, not even death can take that away.
Amy continues to fight the battle. I'm sure you know that. She does it for both of you as well as so many others. Please, watch over her and give her strength to continue the fight.
We continue to fight the "pink" battle for You, Amy and others.
I Love You My Pink Warrior.
I miss you even more.

Hey Aunt Kelli- the kids and Uncle David were down this weekend it sure was great to see them! It is definately really hard with out you here... I kept looking around for you and it is hard to accept that I can't see you.. There is just too much missing. The kids seem to be doing well though. Matt took little man skating and he scored 3 goals!! The girls went to Jenny's baby shower with mom and Grandma and had a fun time. We made the famous doritos again last night! Every bite reminded me of you.. I still look at your pictures everyday they are displayed on one of my mantels. I ask everyday why, why you had to go but I know you are watching over us and god needed a beautiful angel up there. I miss you and love you soooo much. I'll stop back again soon.
Today, we were able to visit with Sara, Katy, Lil Dave & Dave Sr.
They came into to town so the girls came to Jen's baby shower. Oh Kelli, your babies look so like you!
I see Dave in them too, but mostly you. Your girls are such little ladies and the little guy is a quiet little gentlemen. I so enjoyed our time with them today.
Thank you for raising such beautiful, wonderful children.
That's the part of you that will always go on. We look at them, and see you. You will always be close to our hearts.
I Love & Miss You Kelli,
aunt keli, well its has been a couple months since you left us and were all missing you very much. x-mas was really hard but we all made it through it, i knwo you were there with us. i got little guy some ice skates and a stick, i hear he is doing really well with them so far, im trying to find time to get up there and skate with him and the girls. i was out ice fishing the other day and a bald eagle came over the shack and just flew around it put a smile on my face thinking it was you, and i happen to catch a few walleye that day. well just wanted to write i was thinking about you. love always matthew (chewy)
My dear sweet niece, even tho you are not physically of this earth your presence is always with all of us. I keep picturing you as a young girl with your pony tails, and it brings a smile to my face. I relive the moments of our "Relay" walks and our weekends together and how much fun we had just staying up and visiting. I know your always there for us as we still try to accept the fact the God took you home, he has a greater plan for you. Your life and legacy continue on in your 3 beautiful children and your husband who is being very strong for the kids. Just stay there with them as they put one foot in front of other and try to go forward, with your spirit at their side they will be fine. I still miss talking to you on the phone tho, those 2 hr phone calls where all we did is laugh. My sweet angel I miss you so much, and I love you!
Kelli (fluffers)Thought of you today when i was at walmart,put a smile on my face.My Christmas that you gave me is on every night to shine bright for you.Wanted to go out and make a snow angel for you but it was to cold at that time Brrrrrr.You always called me a freeze baby,when me an Robbie an Mom were up ay your house while David was gone it was snowing lkie crazy outside and you said lets go sledding so we bundled up went out side went slidding and catching snow flakes with our tounges while Mom was taking picture's for us.When i can i will go out and make that snow angel for you.Merry Christmas Kelli,I Love an Miss You Very Much.
Love Sis Gerianne
Kelli,Thinking of you in my heart I know the angels are kepping you safe.
Pinky,(Kelli)Your my special angel who shines so birght and you light up my christmas.My light's are on and my star is blinking for you up there.Merry Christmas.I Love You.
Thank You for surrounding so many with your love and inspiration. I know your just a prayer away. Those who need you most can feel you around them. That is a most blessed, warm feeling. I wish we could chat, I miss that. We always made each other laugh. I hang tight to the memories, they are warm and very welcome for me. We always sleep with the blanket you made me along with the one Amy made us.
It keeps me closer to you. I kiss you both good night everytime I go to bed. Those 2 blankets are my most prized and loved comfort. It's the Christmas season and your empty spot is showing on all those who love you most. It's so very hard and painful for everyone.
Please watch over them Kelli, they need your guidance and love.
As you probably know, Grams is in the hospital and struggling with ill health. Somehow, I feel you with her and urging her on. I know you are an Angel that surrounds all of us. I find some peace in that.
Nothing and nobody could ever replace that smile and sparkle you always had.
I know you sparkle a great deal now, you are that shining star we look to in the night sky.
You live on in your Children, Husband, Mom, Sisters and Brother.
Not to mention, Niece's, Nephews, Aunts, Uncles,Cousins and Grandma.
As long as we are here, so are you!
I miss you and love you.
Kelli, I've been thinking of you so much lately since I've been home from the hospital. When I was in ICU, I vaguely remember someone talking sweetly to me to wake up and fight and then I saw a wisp of long, beautiful blond hair. I am certain to this day that you pulled me back from joining you. Sometimes the fight seems to difficult to bear, but you have always been such a great inspiration to me and will continue to be so. Please help me to find that everlasting push I need to fight this horrible disease for myself and in your honor. I love and miss you very much - your cousin Amy
Hey sis,well i had christmas at my house was very hard on everyone cause you were not there ,I know you where watchin over us telling us to have a good time.gizmo is doing good with us.I think of you every minute of the day,I miss you so much but i know your with me.I Love You and Miss you so very much.Love Sis Gerianne
Aunt Kelli- We just celebrated our Christmas and we definately missed you very much..we were thinking about you a lot and even made your special doritos with cheese in the oven, man are those good!!! Sara made almost the whole bag of doritos and I thought that was too much but she said it wasn't. Turns out we ate the WHOLE PAN!! Hee Hee! I also wanted to let ou know the house is coming along well!! I did the upstairs bathroom in all of the frog decorations we found! It is soooo cute! Well I will stop back again soon. I think about you everyday and I know that will never change. Although our time with you was cut way to short, thank you for being such a blessing to all of us. I love you and miss you more than words can say.
Hey mom we had Christmas at Aunt Geriannes last weekend and we all missed you very much. We all had a very hard time trying to have fun even though the life of the party wasn't there. I know that Dad tried his best to be happy but I could tell that he wasn't to thrilled on Friday when we left. Gizmo has a new home now too. He is staying with Aunt Gerianne permanently. I really miss him but I can see him every time i go down to see her. I love you and will try to write again in a few weeks. Oh by the way I am doing very well in school too I thought you might like to hear that. Love you and miss you lots! love, Sara
Dearest Kelli -
I hope you are dancing and doing all those things you weren't able to do here on earth. I'll bet heaven is a beautiful place, and so fitting (but painful) that that is where God wanted you.
I'm writing this in hopes you can place your hands on the shoulders of all your family. The holidays are approaching very quickly, and they will need some additional help to get through them without you with them. They celebrated your "family Christmas" yesterday at Gerianne's as best they could, and they struggled to get through it, as tears and emotions were heavy. So I thought maybe I could ask you to help them out as I know you have had your hands in some pretty amazing things down here in the past month and a half.
I love you Kelli and am sure the angels have circled around you!!
Love Aunt Deb
Mom, I promise that i will try and take care of things I miss u so much. I love u and think of you every day it really sucks that i can't stay up late and watch tv and eat oreo's with u at midnight. i really wish that u would have been around to see me graduate and have kids and normal mother daughter things. Many people are going to try and take your place but i won't ever let that happen. I am so glad that most of my friends got to get to know you and I wish that others would have gotten that chance but I know that you are watching over me. Dad, David, and Katy miss you too and we are having a really hard time accepting that you are gone. mom I got to meet Dierks Bentley! I got to hang out backstage with him on his bus and we are going to write letters back and forth. You would have had a blast but i know that you had planned what happened that day. Again I love you and I miss u very much but i know that you are watching over everything i do and i know that I'll see you again someday. Until then i will always top and visit you. I love you lots and I wish that you were here with me to help me get through high school. You'll be glad to know that I'm doing good in school and am having fun. High school isn't as bad as I thought I just wish that you were here to share the fun times with me. I love you and miss you so much. love your daughter, Sara
It's been 4 weeks since we lost you.
It still seems unreal to all of us.
Everyone is doing their best to move forward. We try, but your face, or a memory continues to come forward. They are warm memories and we love having them. The hard part is, they are memories now.
I pray you found your way to Grandpa and all those who were waiting for you. You are now in wonderful hands, many family, friends and loved ones to help guide you on this journey.
I Love & Miss You Kelli!
I went to North End grade school with Kelli. I have many fond memories of us at birthday parties, learning to apply makeup, talking about boys. As time went on we lost touch, as so often happens. I was so saddened to read about her death in the paper. To her family, please accept my sincere condolences and prayers. From reading the postings of others I can see that the woman she became was as awesome as the girl I knew. God Bless You all.
To my Aunt Kelli you know that you were and still are a fighter you have given me the strength to not give up on anything because you didn't. I will always remember the good times I had with you in the summer. You and grandma there giving me chyanne. Those are the things that I will hold close. I miss you more then words can say.
P.S. I will stand by dad.
To my wife, you fought a good fight and we'll not forget you. The kids and I miss you alot and we'll always LOVE YOU. Keep an eye out for them as you are their guardian angel. We'll walk on as your "Pink Angels" and keep your memory and fight alive.
With all my heartfelt love to my beautiful Niece and Goddaughter Kell Jo. The emotions ran high for me. But seeing how you touched the hearts of so many people in your short life, helped ease the pain of your lose. You are truely Gods special Angel. You will forever be in my prayers as will your family. I love and miss you so very much. But I know you'll always be with in my heart.
All My Love
Kelli, you will always be with me.
Kelli, you are my angel forever.
My deepest sympathies for everyone who knew and loved Kelli. She is truly an angel that has found her way home. No more pain ,no more suffering, No more fighting.
Love you and miss you very much.
Rest In Peace
Thank You, Dear Lord, for allowing our church to minister to and be ministered by Kelli, Dave and Family. Through Kelli's strength, perseverence, and attitude, You caused a growth, and spiritual explosion in the Nashwauk Alliance Church. Praise be to the God of all comfort, for the allowing us to be served by and yet serve our sister and brother in Christ. We are all encouraged, knowing that Kelli is now surrounded by the Glory of God in the most Holy, painless, perfect place to be.
In Jesus name, we thank you Lord.
To the O'Neils,
We are so sorry to hear of the loss of your very dear sister (in law)& Aunt. You are in our thoughts and prayers. May your fond memories help you through this sad time. Remember what is Earths loss is Heavens gain. Please know we are here for you if you need anything. Rest in Peace sweet Kelli for you have earnd your place amongst the stars.
with our love and deepest sympathy
I didn't get the opportunity Kelli to thank you for letting us be a part of your life. Our lives have been blessed having known you.
I am still so impressed by how much you were so loved. The outpouring from family, friends and the community was incredible! You will be missed so very much.
I didn't say goodbye to you Kelli because goodbye seems to final for me. So, I will just say; I will see you later.
May you rest in peace
My dear Niece Kelli - You have taught all of us the precious gift of life. You have shown us just how precious it is by fighting so hard and courageously. You have left us far too soon, but I have to believe that God needed you up there with him. What a beautiful angel he has chosen!! Certainly a plus for him but such a huge loss for all of us. We will continue to fight against the horrible disease that took you away from us. This I promise you - your fight was not in vain!!
To my Sister, nieces and nephew -
Know you did everything right for Kelli and her family, not just the bad times but made "the good times" memories that will hold in your heart forever.
To David & the kids - We are here for you at anytime. Know you are loved and our family will continue to support and help you whenever you need us.
It has been a long hard battle Auntie but you sure showed strength and always looked forward. It was very hard this past week but you are out of pain and can now watch over us. There isn't a day that goes by that I don't think of you and I know that will always be. You will be so deeply missed and until we meet again may you rest in piece. I love you so very much.
my sweet niece

To My loving sister Kelli,My heart is broken,our time together was not long enough but the memories of us growing up are forever.your beautiful smile, you fought this fight so hard and with the support behind you is what kept you with us longer.Our trip's to walmart going to the mall getting lotion's to smell good.Staying up late telling stories of us sister's and our brother,calling each other late at night,doing the walk's together.god has found his beautiful angel an that is you.I will be there for David and the Kids.I love you sis (fluffer's)you are so beautiful to me.Love for ever your sister Gerianne
Yesterday, we put you to rest from your pain and suffering. It was such a painful time. You were far too young to have left your Family & Friends. Oh Kelli, there were so many lives you touched. Friends and Family came from near and far to pay their respects to such a Warrior. You battled this Cancer with dignity and strength. You showed all of us the true meaning of Courage and Faith.
It doesn't lessen our pain of loosing you, but your pain is over. We watched an Eagle soar after the services. We took that as a sign of your beauty and freedom.
There are so many who feel that deep emptiness without you. We will do our best to help them heal through the years. The tears and lonliness will be with all of us for a long time. You would have been so proud of your Husband, Children, Mom, Brother & Sisters.
They fought with you during your battle, and they were still there to show the same dignity and strength you showed them.
I Love You Kelli & pray the Angels have brought you to your home to soar with those Eagles.
To the Hardy/Nasby families - I hope that I can fight my own battle with cancer with as much courage and strength as Kelli did. She is truly an inspiration to me and I can already hear her telling me to pick up the pace of my fight. Always in my prayers - your cousin Amy
My cousin Kelli is now a beautiful angel in heaven watching over all whom she loved dearly. Her time here on earth was to short but it was filled with so much love and for that I am thankful. I did not get to see Kelli very much but my memories of her will be with me always. She was loved and will always be loved dearly. Kelli's memory and legacy will carry on through her three children and everyone who she touched in her 39 years with us.
I will miss you Kelli but I'm at some peace knowing that you are no longer in pain.
To my Nasby family..I love you all very much.
To the Hardy family..my thoughts and prayers are with you always.
I was saddened to hear of Kelli Jo's passing, her life hear on earth was too short. The lord must have needed another angel in heaven and called her home. We had alot of fun times growing up, I have pictures and memories to cherish.
May the entire family find comfort in knowing she isn't in any more pain.
It has been a long, hard 2 days. I am so glad I was able to make the trip to say my goodbyes for myself and Allie. I have a little comfort in knowing that you are no longer fighting. You can finally rest. We all miss you dearly, but know we will all meet again.
I love you
Your cousin Jenny
Aunt kelli, im thankful for the time i got to spend with you, today was a really hard day but we made it through it. i will always think about you and i know you will always be with us. you were a true fighter and very special to everyone around you. i love you very much and will miss you deeply
Please accept my deepest sympathies.
to my loving niece i will miss you so much.i wish i could have been there for you.. love always your uncle dan and family
