    Dear Val
    We were shocked when we heard the news about Kelly. Our hearts ache for you. You have been in our thoughts. Please know we are so very sorry. A parent should not ever have to go through this, as it is not the way the circle of life was meant to be.

    Huge hugs from all of us in Kelowna.

  5. Kelly-your passing has made me think and reflect. One thing I feel bad about was I could have been kinder and more empathetic towards your struggle in this life, instead I did what is easy- I judged and now I’m feeling guilt which comes with making mistakes.
    I’m so sorry Kelly that I wasn’t a very good uncle to you. In your honor I will work on being a better me.
    Rest in peace.

    Kelly I miss you, I keep thinking about all the times we shared and laughter. You were an amazing friend and stayed in my heart long after. I feel bad I never got the chance to say good bye to you, I should have called you for that playdate with both our boys. How sad now it is to think I could have been there for you if only I had know you were struggling. I missed your funeral not because I didnt want to be there but because I just saw light of it today. I am so sorry for you & your family. Your mom & sister will never be the same without you nor will anyone that knew you. You left an impression on all of our hearts and it saddens me greatly. I love you & may you rest in peace with God. May you always shine on your boys how you have shined on all of us. God bless.

  9. Dear Val
    I think I only met you once. But I knew Kelly very well , she was friends with my daughter Tania Picken for many years. I remember Kelly as being a very sweet, loving person , always smiling.
    When Tania told me of her passing I was very sad. Much too young to be taken. Please know that my prayers are with you and your family.
    Good bless Anna

    My rock, my best friend, my sister, my soul mate, my everything.
    It hasn’t even been two weeks since you decided it was your time to go.. I replay that day, Jan 21st, over and over wishing if I only knew you weren’t going to be here with me anymore, I wouldn’t have left you that night.. Kelly, my world, my life will never be the same. I will always have a empty space in my heart which no one can or will be able to fill.. A piece of me died with you that day and I would bring you back in a heartbeat.. But I know a million tears won’t bring you back and a million wishes won’t either, but I’ll never stop trying cause that’s what sister do..
    Here is a promise that I’ll keep for you, but I need you to promise me something too, Kelly. I promise to do the right thing and that’s to step up and raise Sky and I promise I’ll never ever let your two boys forget how much you loved them both.. I promise I’ll never replace you, but I’ll do the best I can.. I promise to tell them how proud I was to call you my sister and tell them about all your good qualities and how beautiful your heart was and how strong you were.. I promise Kelly, not a day will go by that I won’t miss you. I’ll never stop missing you, never little one..
    Now Kelly, I need you to promise me something, and that’s to promise to give me the hope and strength and will to get out of bed everyday and promise me you won’t let the memories we’ve shared fade. Promise me that you will guide me to the right and you will keep away the wrongs.. And one last thing little sis, promise me you’ll come and see me like you did in the clouds that morning. I need more of those moments please..
    So may you R.I.P. Kelly. Now you’re dancing in the sky forever my angel..
    I’ll never stop missing you ..

    Love forever and always
    Your big sister Stacey

  11. My Sweet Daughter Kelly,
    I cry everyday four or five times a day. I still can’t believe it, it’s been four weeks that I haven’t seen you or talked to you Kelly. My heart is broken and I don’t think I will ever recover from this tragedy. Skylar and Tristen finally met Kelly and I know that is what you wanted all along.
    They met on Skylar’s first birthday. Tristen was so excited to meet his little brother. Honey, it is so sad that this is the way they had to meet. I will keep your memory alive for your boys, Kelly.
    Those boys will know how much their mommy loved them. Skylar will be well taken care of Kelly, I will not let you down. Stacey will be there too helping me. One night I felt you Kelly, I was crying in bed and I felt you hug me, I felt your arms around me and you calmed me down. I know you are with Skylar and Tristen and you are watching over them. You help me go through each and every day Kelly cause I know I could not do this without you beside me all the time. You push me every day Kelly and you are always on my mind sweetie. I know you are not hurting anymore honey and you are at peace now. Kelly, don’t stop hugging me, I need you to calm me down. I miss you so much honey RIP my little Kelly I love you honey.
    Love Mommy
