Patty Kelly

08/04/1960 — 05/03/2009

My sister Patty, who I adored, passed away May 3, 2009.  It happened way too soon.  My family and hers are so stunned by her death, as were her co-workers, that we feel like someone is playing a practical joke on us, and she’ll show up alive.  My heart aches and I can’t stop crying.

She was diagnosed with Ocular Melanoma 9 years ago.  It came back in a fury and stole her from her family and loved ones.  In six weeks she went from being, we thought cured, to passing away.  She fought hard all the way to the end. My heart aches.

Peggy Lamon, Sister
