    Well, this is my final update for my friend Kelli. She went to be with the Lord today after a valiant struggle. It was very sudden in spite of the cancer, she had the tumor in her chest still and it was growing even with chemo and radiation. It had wrapped around her heart and they didn't realize until this week it was also infiltrating one of the major arteries, today it broke the wall and she bled out.....the blessing was it was instant. She was gone to fast to be scared and she didn't suffer at all. I have cried a lot the past 3 hours, but only for myself I know she is at peace and without pain. Pray for her Mom and her Husband, he has always depended on her so much and they have 4 kids. The 3 oldest are 15 y.o. and up, but the youngest is only 7 and she has a new granddaughter that is only 3 months and will never know her. Thanks for your prayers and support over this year.:heartbeat

    My heartfelt sympathies go out to you and her family.

    I came across this website and immediately thought of you for being the ultimate "dash" of a friend & a "dash" already well spent:

    I can't even find the words. My heart goes out to her children. I lost my mother at the age of 7 and I know the devastation it causes. I pray that her husband has the strength to overcome the pain and for everyone who has an empty space in their heart due to Kelli's passing, just know that she is smiling down on all of you.
