    Joe and Family,
    I met Kelli about 18 years ago through your sister-in-law Denise. I remember the first time I met Kelly, we went away to NH to go shopping at the outlets and when we got home I called Denise and asked if her sister-in-laws, especially Kelli, were really that nice. Denise quickly responded “Yes, they really are”. Over the last 18 years I saw Kelli a lot, including at your house last summer for pool school and she was literally the sweetest person I have ever met. She was a beautiful girl inside and out and one of the most extraordinary Mom’s I have ever seen. Anyone who ever met Kelli was blessed. We are so deeply sorry for your loss.

We love you so much and will see you again one day……Mandi, Shayne and Baby Chase

You did everything with such grace and a smile.
