My sweet Sisterbear!!! I was there when you were born and I was immediately in love. You brought me so much joy and laughter and were always there. We were 2 peas in a pod from the get-go. And that never stopped. We had our fun life..,living it up in Italy and San Fran and wine county and Savannah. When you met Ryan and got engaged I was soooo happy for you and THEN you had Luca and Nico and our world changed, I could not stop being so proud of you and my nephews. They brought you such an amazing amount of joy and at first they couldn’t tell us apart. It was so cute! Through it all you just devoted all your efforts to the boys and Ryan and our family. Through our mom’s death and then Papa Joe you were a rock. I couldn’t have done it without you. As I said to you in the hospital that last week..,I’ll love you forever and I’ll take care of your boys. They look like you and remind me everyday of what you meant to this world. A beautiful light that will never be extinguished. Cheers to you Sisterbear and damn, you did a great job in 43 years, what a life well lived. I’ll meet you by that fire pit with a glass of wine. ❤️

We are so very sorry for your loss. We were not fortunate enough to know Kelly well, but definitely experienced her commitment to helping others. My sister, Mary, who is Krissy's best friend, introduced us to Kelly as my husband and I were considering a move to Greenville, and we are so grateful for her generous time, insights, and advice! Sending warmest thoughts and prayers to all who loved her.
Peace of mind is a call away. We’re here when you need us most.

Ryan and the Babusci Family, Anthony shared the news with me and I'm completely devastated for you and your family! Truly at a loss for words, but I will ensure that you and your boys remain the focus of my thoughts and prayers. The reality and weight of this is extremely heavy, but the love and support of friends and family and power of prayer will hopefully lessen the pain. Hang in there and don't ever hesitate to reach out if you need someone to listen. I will pray for strength for you and your family in the next few days and beyond. May God Bless you and your family today and always! With Deepest Condolences and Heartfelt Sympathy, Tony Leone

David, Angela, and their girls were neighbors of ours when Kelly was in elementary and middle school. I was shocked to learn of both Kelly’s and Angela’s passing. My heart goes out to all of her family and friends during what I know is a most difficult time.

One of our favorites, gone way too soon. Kelly and I met in Charlotte & our kiddos instantly bonded during swimming lesson and so Kelly and I became good mom friends :) Our first borns grew up together and then we both had our second borns around the same time. We still would keep in contact even after the family moved to Greenville and have play dates from time to time and it was always so pleasant and like we never missed a beat from being apart. I will Miss her sweet, loving and funny self. She always had a way of making you feel better and brought a smile to the world. It hurt to hear the news of Kelly’s passing and I am beyond broken hearted for this loss for Ryan, Luca and Nico. May her bright spirit live on everyday and give constant reminders of happiness and love to those that adored and cherished her in this lifetime. Your dear family is in our thoughts and we are sending you lots of love during this time and forever. We will greatly miss you Kelly!

Kelly, As I type this, I have no idea what to say. You were a bright light in the darkness, a beautiful flower that bloomed every time I saw you, a force that commanded every inch of our ability to be better. You reminded us to Love more, be better, and laugh harder, You are missed, but will never be forgotten. ❤️

So many great memories with Kelly - family, friends, smiles, laughter, a glass of wine, a good wedge salad, and the most hysterical game of catchphrase that has ever been played. We miss you already, and my heart aches for everyone who will miss you on a daily basis, especially for Ryan, Luca, Nico, Krissy, and Mr. Hoadley. May God grant them strength and comfort in the days ahead.
