Kenneth and Debra, My deepest sympathy in these moments of sadness. The world lost a wonderful soul that made it better everyday. As parents we are never ready to lose a child, especially one as loving as Katelyn. May you find solace in the three beautiful gifts Katelyn left behind for the world to see and enjoy. Katelyn can not be replaced and she will be missed by all that she touched. May time brings you peace and comfort. You are in our prayers.

Debbie Atkins, December 21, 2016 Family, I was so saddened to learn about the loss of your Beloved Katelyn. I met her when she was 16 years old at Southwest Liaison Region where her father, Mr. Kenneth Skelton worked. She had a beautiful, friendly and bubbly personality and grew into a beautiful and very smart young lady, wife and mother. My heartfelt condolences to the family. The Lord will bless you with peace, comfort and strength during this challenging time and the days ahead. It is never easy to lose a loved one; I will continue to pray for the Family. May the Lord bless and keep you in His loving care! Mary J. Conner, December 21, 2016 I worked with you at Macy's. You were such a beautiful person; always with a smile on your face and positive all of the time. You will be greatly missed, but I will never forget you.
