    I was so saddened to learn of Kelsey’s passing. I had Kelsey as a student at Ottawa Learning Center and remember her as a sweet and funny girl. My sympathy is with her family at this time.

    I just want to let family know that they are in my thoughts and prayers. Kelsey was an amazing young lady. I was blessed to get to know her know as close as I did. I can’t make it to the service but I pray that everyone remembers for the beautiful and uplifted her person she was.

    I knew Kelsey very briefly, and know she had so much more to offer the world..I know she will be missed and to her sister mom and children, I pray the Lord holds you closely during this difficult time Psalms 34:18 The Lord is close to the brokenhearted and saves those who are in crushed spirit.

    My sincere condolences to the family and friends. I am truly sorry for your loss, please take comfort in knowing that soon God will actually swallow up death forever Isaiah 45:8 As the “Lords prayer” says “thy kingdom come, thy will be done on Earth as it is in Heaven”.Matt 6:9,10 Bringing a glimpse of the future earth as the Lords prayer promises is Rev 21:3,4,5 let us know that soon there will be no more pain, sorrow. Jehovah God will be wiping away all tears from our eyes. The former things have passed . Peace be with the family and friends.
    Be assured that Jehovah God is a hearer of prayer (Psalms 65:2)
    He truly hears your prayers.
    Agape Love, Vicki

    “the hour is coming in which all those in the memorial tombs will hear his voice and come out, those who did good things to a resurrection of life, those who practiced vile things to a resurrection of judgment.” (John 5:28, 29)

    I never met her at all, nor her family, but I am very close to her dad. It was a shock when I read through the net, I called Simon (her grandpa in her father’s side) to know if were true. George, my sincere sympathies though late. You know I’m here…
