  13. Mrs. Smith,
    I can’t believe this is real. I’m going to miss you so much. My head is in such a fog. You were a second mother to me. You will always be someone I admire and look up to. I will never ever forget about you and all of those memories we shared. From all the laughs we shared, our endless trips to Build-A-Bear, going to Disney together, city trips, going to Hershey, getting our nails done, going on lunch dates, being my gym buddy, and lets not forget our snack times I can’t thank you enough for the moments we shared. I am going to miss your famous shrimp cocktail lol. You always had it ready for me when I came over. I am forever grateful for you and your family. It’s because of you I am the person I am today. I can’t thank you for being such a light in my life and my families. Over the years our friendship turned into something so much more than that. You are family. I will never be able to get over this. I love you always and forever. I will take you with me wherever I go. The most selfless, cheerful, loving, and caring human being. The world is not going to be the same without you.
    Love always,
    Your Jessie Girl xoxo

  14. I have truly never met another person like Kelly, her grace, and generosity are unmatched. From a young age, I’ve noticed that Kelly has always gone above and beyond in every situation. Whether it be throwing an epic holiday party, sending my mom 50 roses on her 50th birthday, to ensuring that I had an American girl doll to open alongside Kelsey for Christmas. Every year, Kelly made my birthday feel as if it was a national holiday. She would even celebrate my “half birthday’s” which happened to fall on the same day as Kelsey’s birthday. She had this talent where she was able to double the fun with everything. She frequently brought up how her and Kelsey were at the hospital when I was born. I realize just how fortunate I am, to have known someone as great as Kelly for this long. She did so much for everyone, and I will be forever grateful how she made my mom and I feel like family all of these years. Her wit, amazing taste, and heart of gold can never be forgotten. If you’ve had the privilege of knowing Kelly, with that comes so many amazing memories and a lot of love. My deepest condolences.

  15. Kelly was such an important person in my life. She was more than a friend, she was more like a sister. Our friendship started about 10 years ago over our love of exercise, decorating, gardening and our love of our families !! Our friendship grew over the years!! She was the most giving person I ever met. This world was truly a better place with her in it!! Heaven truly has a special angel. Watch over Steve and Kelsey!! I know they were your world. Rest In Peace my friend!!❤️💕

  16. Our hearts are so heavy as we share in your grief. Kelly was a bright light, full of joy. We will miss her greatly. Our hearts and love are with you all.

  17. My dear Kelly was the best friend, aunt and godmother that has forever blessed my life. We have a lifetime of memories together with our families. She had a true heart of gold and enjoyed every aspect of her life, especially when it came to her daughter. She was the pride and love of her life. In the spirit of her love of Broadway, I will say with my whole heart, because I knew you, I have been changed for good. My BFF forever and ever. I love you, my friend.

  18. candleMy sister, my heart, can’t even begin to express my feelings. Since you were 12 you have been a huge part of me, so many memories, so much love, I’m just at a loss, I love you 😢😢

  19. A light has gone out in the world with the passing of Beautiful, Loving and Kind Kelly. Glad I had the opportunity to have met you many years ago at Lucille Roberts, good times. May you Rest In Peace with all the Angels. You will be so missed by everyone who knew and loved you; especially your Family😔😢

  20. Kelly you will be forever in our hearts, thoughts and memories. You enjoyed life every day with a smile and always taking the time to made another persons day a happy one. We have lost an angel but heaven just received one. You were a great wife to Smitty and a great mom to Kelsey. We are so happy that the last few months we got to enjoy it with you. Forever in our prayers. Love always, 💐💐🙏🙏🌻🌻🍸🍸💔

  21. To our beautiful and amazing friend, both in and out. You have been through so much n have always embraced it with that beautiful smile and laughter.

  23. “Kelly was such an amazing person. She lit up any room she was in. Always a person to talk to and made everyone feel welcome and like family. I still think about all the wonderful times spent together and am so saddened for your family. You three were some of the loveliest people I’ve ever known. With love, Katy”

  24. Kelly and I were best friends from the moment we said hi to each other 40 years ago. We have been there for each other through all the ups and downs life has to offer. We are so heartbroken . Life will not be the same without her.

  27. To my darling bride,
    We began in the park Memorial Day weekend ‘95,

I promise I’ll keep the house clean and yard up to snuff. Till we meet again,Love you

  28. candleDear Kelsey and Steve,
    I am so sorry to hear about Kelly’s passing. She was a wonderful person with a heart of gold. She touched so many lives at St. Joseph’s School with her kindness and generosity. Kelsey was the center of her life. I know she will be watching over both of you always. May God comfort you in this difficult time. You are in my thought and prayers.

  29. To Kelsey and the Smith family,

    My family and I are so so deeply sorry for your loss. Mrs. Smith was such an amazing woman with such a huge heart and showed love to everyone she met. She was always a pleasure to be around and lit up a room with her smile. One memory I will always remember with her is when she was my Brownie and Girl Scout leader. She was truly the best. Life can be so so unfair sometimes, in ways I will never understand. The Columbo family is thinking of you all and we are all praying for you.

  30. Steve and Kelsey, We cannot express in words the sorrow we feel for your loss. Kelly was one of the nicest and most genuine souls we have ever known. Your love for each other was and will always be a blessing and a example of a truly beautiful relationship. May Kelly rest in peace and may God shine his light on her and her beautiful family.

    Love Always The Sprufera family.

  31. A very loving GodMother and amazing friend to me and my family. I will always appreciate the memories we have had together and will never forgot everything she has done for me. Rest peacefully. Thankyou for being the best GodMother I could have ever asked for.

    I cannot find the words to describe how much you meant to me and my family. I feel as if a part of my heart and family is missing. You were so many things but above all like a second mother to me and my sisters. You did so much for us but most of all loved us. We will miss you forever, I will hold our happy memories together close to my heart forever. I know your presence will live on in my life whether that is through all the decorations you helped pick out for my home or the little notes you would leave me. I love you so much. Sal, my family and I will miss you terribly, we were so lucky to have known you. Do not worry we will be there for Kelsey and Steve forever.


  33. candleTo Steve & Kelsey,

    I was extremely saddened to hear the news of Kelly’s passing. Kelly made any room smile when she walked in. I will never forget her kind words to me, our chats & all the advice she gave me. Kelly, you wore your heart on your sleeve and whoever knew you was lucky to have you in their lives.
    The love you & Steve had is something I always admired. You told me to hold on to that person as tight as you can and never let them go. I will remember that forever.
    Your smile, style & kind heart will be missed by many!
    Smitty, Kelsey & your family are in my thoughts & prayers.
    Till we meet again. XO

  39. candleSo at for your loss. I just heard this heartbreaking news! Prayers for Steve and Kelsey ❤️🙏🏼

  40. candleTo my second Mom
    Words can not describe what you meant to me and my family. I was blessed with another mother the day you willingly agreed to take three Guerra girls home from school. One memory that will always remind me of you is when you asked me to pick any color out to paint your laundry room, I randomly said yellow. The fact that you redesigned that whole room to match the yellow paint I picked out always makes me smile. You hold such a special place in my heart and I am proud that I got to know you growing up. There is no one else I would rather ride splash mountain with or make guacamole with. I am proud and honored to have such a beautiful and strong Angel watching over me. I love you so much!

  41. A woman of radiant beauty inside and out. Truly amazing! Our family is so blessed to have Kelly in our lives. You touched so many hearts in this short life. Kelly, the Energizer Bunny! Always going above and beyond for her Sweet Heart Steve, Kelsey, Family and Friends. The impact you have left on our lives, lessons of love, kindness, thoughtfulness have made us all better. Love you, miss you deeply. Your friend, Janece
