Happy Birthday Chelley

Real Estate Agent with Coldwell Banker Residential

Happy Birthday to my sister Chelley, who would have been 57 today. Chelley (Rochelle) was taken from us too soon, by Leukemia. Chelley had a playful, joyful spirit.  She laughed easily and long, and was a trusting, fun-loving young woman.

Chelley raised two sons, Adam & Jonathan.  Adam recently married Eden... whom you knew (I know.. Adam & Eden, it's funny, isn't it).  Chelley wasn't able to attend the wedding, but she was there in spirit, and really would have loved the ceremony.  We kept an empty seat for you.

She is sorely missed by her family and friendsHappy birthday Chel... I can't phone you anymore (I know how much you loved the calvalcade of birthday phone calls), so this is the next best thing I can offer.

I love that photo of you and Maurice.  So happy.  (Damn, that was an ugly tie he was wearing)

Hey Alan.

That was a beautiful tribute to your sister.

I know she's looking down from heaven right now and she's very proud of you.

You know me by now, and, although I'm all about the yucks when blogging, this is no time to joke.

You've done well done my friend.
