|In Loving Memory...|
She said few years before she died that her mom thinks she has anorexia. I don't know why I didn't go there right away (we didn't live in the same country), because I didn't have a chance to help her enough. I love you always Nikkole and I'm sorry we didn't have time to be together enough.

Our Sweet Kelly ~ She was the most kind, gentle and loving person you could ever hope to meet. So helpful - and so thoughtful - She was always putting others first, and even though she was going through so much anguish, she always asked how other people were.
Kelly was like a delicate flower, - so beautiful, so precious - yet no matter what she just couldnt see it. She was so strong minded, struggling through every day, but still putting on a brave face when she found it hard to see any light at the end of the tunnel.
Kelly was such a warm person inside - she adored children, and really enjoyed her time working in a nursery. Her warmth spread to everyone she ever met, and she touched their lives in a way she never knew, yet never managed to find true happiness within herself.
Kelly, you were a ray of sunshine in all our lives - you made us all so proud - whether it be as a daughter, a sister, a niece, a cousin or as a friend. You always tried to please everybody - little did you know you didn`t even have to try.
Year after year you kept going - but this time it was just too much - and you slipped away from us in your sleep.
And now you are at peace... Goodnight, and God bless.

I tried so hard to help you fight it. I was always there, and always listened. I believed in you when the faith of others faltered. We shared joy and tears, happiness and much sorrow. So why do I still feel like I let you down? Kelly, you were the brightest star in my life so I know I now have a guardian angel watching over me. Sleep well angel, and be happy in that special place over the rainbow where you now are. I love you. Goodnight. Sweet dreams forever. xxx

Although I never got to meet you personally, your struggle impacted my life in a way that you will never know. After struggling with anorexia for over 35 years, her body eventually gave up. I admire you for your strength in fighting this disease, and I will continue to do the same. You will always be on my mind. ~ Jess

We always used to say you must have a gaurdian angel, because you made it through so many impossible circumstanses and always came out stronger. As I watched your elusive saddness give way to reveal a person of deep compassion and generosity, a small part of myself healed also. It was so unfair that you died just as you began to reclaim you life after many years of struggling. Yet it was not all in vain, beacuse you are now the gaurdian angel of all of us who knew you. You are my star up in the sky, and I look to you always for courage to go on. I will remember you forever.
