In paradisum deducant te Angeli; in tuo adventu suscipiant te martyres, et perducant te in civitatem sanctam Jerusalem. Chorus angelorum te suscipiat, et cum Lazaro quondam paupere æternam habeas requiem.

Sassy, stubborn, silly as ever and a smile that truly lit up a room...Kelli your light was so bright and I know for a fact that your wings are gonna sparkle even brighter! You will be greatly missed and forever loved!

Kelli Nicole Rush your light will shine forever and we will always love and miss you and that beautiful smile #gonetoosoon #gonebutNEVERforgotten

Of all my nieces Kelli was the feisty one.She never let me get away with anything and called me out whenever I made an out of bounds comment. She made me laugh so hard when she tried to get mad. I loved and will miss her beyond words

I was teammates with Kelli at WMU. I'll always remember how she would make hilarious comments that would make me/us laugh. As a gymnast, I admired her natural bounce and spring in her legs. Rest in peace, Rushie.
My sympathy and prayers are with you.

My prayers to the family, may you be comforted by all the beautiful memories and Kellis beautiful smile...I love you, Cousin Robin Meadows-Fuller

May your hearts soon be filled with wonderful memories of joyful times together as you celebrate a life well lived. From your entire Family here in Texas, our thoughts, prayers and condolences to you and Yours.
