Be comforted in knowing she is with Him and is whole,complete and happy waiting on you to join her one day. May God bless you and all your family in this time of grieving.

  30. I am so sorry to hear of your loss. Your family is in my thoughts and prayers. I taught second grade at Viking Hills this year and was blessed to get to know Kelsey. Ms. Pullin often spoke of how much of ray of sunshine Kelsey was to have in class. She will always be a Ray of sunshine in all our lives. She was such a courageously sweet little girl. She will be deeply missed. I hope you find comfort in knowing that our precious Lord and Savior has his arms wrapped tenderly around her. It is a comfort to know she is an amazing angel watching over all of us.

  31. Kelsey was an inspiration to me with her courage, wisdom and her smile. She never once showed fear. She always had a smile at school. I will miss her dearly and miss her smile when she would come to me as her nurse. My thoughts and prayers are with you and your family. Lisa Boatman LVN Viking Hills Elementary
