Mrs O and I want everyone to know an important part of the story that didn’t make it into the final version of the story; we are grateful to everyone who shares our love for our daughter Kelli.

The support of our family, friends and the whole community has been tremendous, without that support, we shudder to think where we would be in our grieving process today.

We hoped this interview would tell the story of that support to a greater degree.  Please know in your hearts that the support you provide through your emails, FaceBook messages, your letters, pictures, stories, your participation in our events and creation of your own events continue to provide us with the light we need to make it through this difficult time.
