    Kelly, I was so shocked and saddened to hear of your passing. But I knowing you are with Jesus and experiencing all of the wonders of Heaven. I'm sure there is no camera that could capture that splendor, but if there is, I'm sure that you are doing it!! Thank you for all of the wonderful photos you took of my dogs. And mostly thank you for your friendship here on earth. I know those you left behind are so saddened. But for those who know your Savior it is just for a time until we will all be able to rejoice together for eternity. Until then my friend you will be truly missed by all of us who love you. My condolences to your family and friends and to the industry that you so loved.
