Kelly Engle

Personal Description:

Last updated on: 05/22/2008


It is with great sorrow that we will no longer share this world with a dear friend Kelly Engle.
I had seen her in June, and despite her pain she looked great and we laughed most of the afternoon.
We visited a few times that month. She would plant flowers in the yard and sometimes we’d sit for hours on the front lawn and just gaze up through the tree branches of the elm that grew in her front yard.

I know friends and family would say that her will and strength was larger than life.
She has reaffirmed to us that true strength lies in weakness.
