Sending prayers, condolences, and strength to Kellys family on this loss of their Loved one. I still can’t believe she’s really gone. I hit as far as the front door and could not enter because then I would have to realize this Beautiful Friend of mine has gone on to a better place where she was needed. I’ve known this kind, sweet, person over a shirt time of 40 years. She was also there for me when I needed support , guidance , advice.
I’ll never quit missing you and I have been genuinely blessed to have called you my Friend. You were one of a kind. A lifelong friend and not too many people are lucky like me to have someone like you in their lives. God Bless you my beautiful Friend and may the next journey God has in mind for you be as rewarding as the one you had here.
Until we meet again ❤️

I began my journey with Kelly in the early 80’s when I was still in high school. I met my future husband who was once a biker hippie. He also had his long locks made into David Bowie, Rod Stewart. Etc. Kelly said “ Hey Ron, I just colored someone red, you want some? We remained close and no matter what mood Kelly had that day, WE ALWAYS MADE EACH OTHER LAUGH. A can of Spam was our secret joke (which she loved). God bless your family. Fly high Kelly.

So sorry to hear today that Kelly had passed away…she was my Mom’s hairdresser & buddy for decades. My Mom passed away several years ago but Kelly was so sweet & would come to the house to do her hair when she couldn’t get to the salon. My condolences to all of her family. RIP Kelly.
