My deepest sympathies to Kelly's family. I worked with Kelly for several years on the Riverside Football program and then later when my mother was being treated at the UPMC Beaver Cancer Center, Kelly was one of her nurses. She was a wonderful nurse--kind and compassionate. I am sure she touched many lives. May peace be with you all at this time.
Jake and Family, Our thoughts and prayers are with you. In Sympathy - Tim, Shari and Juli Thomas
