When you are sorrowful look again in your heart,
and you shall see that in truth you are weeping for that which has been your delight.

~ Kahlil Gibran, from"The Prophet"

holding you

with deep respect, we honor the memory of Kelli O'Laughlin
as she is laid to rest today
and we hold her loving family close to us 
during this time of profound heartache

knowing firsthand how we gained strength
through the love and unity of this same community
with ribbons bound in solidarity
embracing us during our own time of sorrow

  1. how absolutely awful.

    and a very, vary sad reminder that indeed, every single day we have on this planet is a blessing.

    love you potts. xo-reed

  2. Dear Mary, I'm so very sorry to read of this loss in your community. Sending loving {{{hugs}}} to you.

  3. It's terrible for any mother to lose any child, at any age, for any reason. While it breaks my heart that you and the O'Laughlin family needed to feeligs support of your community, I'm proud that it was (and still is) there.
