Remembering Kelsey.......





This quote couldn't be more true and reflective of the impact that Kelsey made on so many of our lives and the imprint that she continues to make on people today.  For many of us have been forever changed...                                                                               
People say we need to cherish the memories and the times we had with Kels, which believe me we certainly do, but that doesn't mean that we don't long for and want more moments. Feeling very sad and missing my girl more than ever. Inconceivable to believe it has been 6 years & 9 months and a rainy day just like today. Writing this and somehow it doesn't seem  possible the amount of time that's passed as it feels as raw as yesterday and yet an eternity without our beautiful  girl.
                                                                                                   
Many think that time heals you but that couldn't be the farthest from reality with the loss of a child.  Time only makes us miss Kelsey more and more with each passing day.  It emphasizes the absence and emptiness felt with not having her here to share our lives and make more memories.  The reality is that we will miss our girl until the day that we are together again. 

Kelsey, you are forever loved, forever remembered and forever in our hearts yesterday, today,tomorrow and always. We love you baby girl........... Keep smiling beautiful........

Thinking of you Kelsey.....today and everyday.....








My beautiful, beautiful Kelsey. 6 years & 8 months without you.  It doesn't seem possible.  At times, it feels like it was only yesterday and most other times it feels like an eternity. 

 These pictures of you remind me of the wonderful times that we shared on our trips together to Riviera Maya and Florida. We promised each other that our Mom and Kelsey trips would be an annual tradition.  I treasure each and every moment shared with you Kels, but I want to be making more memories with you.  With each passing day, I only miss you more and more.  

Kelsey Lynn Kramer.......you are forever in my thoughts and forever in my heart now and always. Love you baby girl.......

                          6 years & 7 months too long without you Kelsey 
                      Not sure we will ever understand why you........

Easter 2018



Happy Easter Kelsey!







Remembering  and holding onto the memories of our last Easter together with you.  Thinking about our Easter traditions and wishing you could be here coloring eggs.  We know how much you love to do that every year.  Remembering how you would race downstairs to open your basket and so eager for the big Easter egg hunt in the morning.  You and Kyle were so competitive but Kels you always found a way to win and beat your big brother finding the most eggs. I keep looking at these pictures of that beautiful smile and how happy we all were that day. Just so hard to imagine another holiday without you here.   We love and miss you so very much Kelsey.Our baby girl now and forever.......

Love, Mom, Dad & Kyle

                                               Happy Easter Kelsey!

   Kelsey

Death is nothing at all.
It does not count.
I have only slipped away into the next room.
Everything remains as it was.
The old life that we lived so fondly together is untouched, unchanged.
Whatever we were to each other, that we are still.
Call me by the old familiar name.
Speak of me in the easy way which you always used.
Put no sorrow in your tone.
Laugh as we always laughed at the little jokes that we enjoyed together.
Play, smile, think of me, pray for me.
Let my name be ever the household word that it always was.
Let it be spoken without  effort
Life means all that it ever meant. It is the same as it ever was.
There is unbroken continuity.
Why should I be out of mind because I am out of sight?
I am but waiting for you, for an interval, somewhere very near, just around the corner.
All is well. Nothing is hurt; nothing is lost.
One brief moment and all will be as it was before.
How we shall laugh at the trouble of parting,  when we meet again.


Traditional Irish Blessing 
May the road rise up to meet you,
  May the wind be always at your back
  May the sun shine warm upon your face
  And the rains fall soft upon your fields
  And until we meet again, May God hold
  you in the palm of his hand


Happy St Patrick's Day Kelsey.  We love and miss you so much..........................
