My fondest memories of Kelly were playing together as kids in Wonder Lake on our cousin visits.  As an adult, I love hearing stories of her adventuring and kind hearted spirit.  Heaven is but another adventure, and her Spirit will continue to shine bright.
Love, Meredith, Bill, Michelle, and Ethan.

We will cherish her memory and let it live on.  We could cry and close our minds, be empty and turn our backs.  But we will do instead what she'd want:
               Smile, open our eyes, love and go on.

Remembering Kelly as a bright light, a terrific friend, a great daughter, sister, and aunt -
Prayers and hugs,   Mary and Jim

Rest in Peace, Kelly. You were a great mentor and friend, and I miss our teas at fancy UAE hotels! They finally did start the toll system, but not until both you and I left. I don't know how I would have made it through my ACS summer without your advice. Thanks for the iLead advice as well - I still have your wisdom and stories in my head. You're a role model and I'm sorry we don't have more time with you. Condolences to your family and your extended Foreign Service family. Sharon Keld
Peace of mind is a call away. We’re here when you need us most.

Kelly is an A100 (Foreign Service orientation class) classmate of mine and I feel confident that I can speak for us all when I say that Kelly was one of the most delightful and brightest sparks in our class.

She was a truly lovely person and I will miss her deeply. My condolences to all her family.

I met beautiful Kelly in Hermosillo, Mexico when we worked together at the US Consulate General. We became friends quickly, and one particular fun memory I have of her is attending a Shakira concert with her and some other friends from the consulate.  She had an amazing sense of humor, and she was extremely intelligent.  I was also a talented consular officer, and I was not surprised that she rose so quickly through the Foreign Service ranks.  I really valued her opinion, and often asked for her advice. It breaks my heart that someone with such a love of life has been taken so young.  My sincerest condolences to her family, her other friends, and everyone who had the privilege to know her and work with her.
