Yet, her whirlwind of emotions only heightened as her family also lost her grandmother, 39 hours after losing her grandfather. The two had been married for 62 years and literally couldn’t live without each other. She takes comfort in knowing they are both together in heaven.


She continues; “That’s the kind of love we can all only pray to find and keep.” Prayers go out to Kelsea and her family during this most difficult time.
