  34. Kelly and I were in the same homeroom in high school. I have great memories of her infectious enthusiasm. Even though it’s been over 30 years since I’ve seen her, her passing has touched my heart. Condolences to her family and friends.

  35. Lloyd, Cody and Kelsy, I just heard the news. Please accept our condolences. I have many fond memories of the our times when the boys played soccer, and Cody was at Lawrenceville Academy. My prayers are with you. The Deloney family.

  36. Dearest family, Benny may be gone, but you will always be my family. You all accepted me as one of your own and I will always be grateful for the experience of having known you all, My heart is so heavy with your loss. Kelly”s love of life, joy, and beautiful smile will be my fondest memories of her. Chuck, I love you man and miss your spirit. Take comfort in knowing how much Kelly loved you. Wayne and Andrea, I cannot imagine how much your heart is hurting. Take comfort in knowing you will meet again. Lloyd, we only met once, but you are in my thoughts and prayers. To Cody and Kelsey, remember all the love and joy your mother brought you. May God’s love lift you up.

  37. To the entire family my heart aches for you. I can only have empathy for you because unless you go thru this, you cannot even imagine the pain it brings. Kelly, I loved you because of the genuine person you were and how kind you were to everyone. I will forever remember the ride you gave me to Atlanta only a short time ago and I know God allowed me to have that time. I know that Bo (and I always loved hearing you call him that) was waiting with open arms when you got to heaven. I know that you have given several people live by your generous donations and I think that will give your family a lot of peace when they think of these people living with a part of you with them. Andi and Wayne my heart is with you because I am a mother too and I cannot begin to know the pain you are going thru. If there is anything I can do, please let me know, as you try to get thru these hard times that are to come. Without God I would never have made it when Alan died so I know your faith will help so much.

  38. It breaks my heart to lose my 10th grade teacher. She was so nice to all of us and I loved it when she read “Lord of the Flies” to us. I can hear her voice inside my head saying “I will always be with you.” Praying for the family, may God comfort you during this time. Your Loving Student, Cathy

  39. There are no words we can say to make the pain go away we are very sorry. At least she was there to celebrate your 50th anniversary.

  40. I had Mrs. White for 4 years at Dacula High School. She was my aspiring person through life. I can’t imagine her departing without saying goodbye! I’ve known Kelsey McCulloch from the past years when we went to Dacula Middle School and the High School. I never saw Mrs. White and Kelsey at my Graduation back in May this year. I’m glad Kelsey’s mom got me doing the STRIVE Program this year instead of college. I thanked her for helping me get through high school all 5 years now instead of 4 cause she kept me back at Dacula High School for 1 more year and wishing me the best sorry for her passing on August 24th this year.

  41. Revelation 21:4 And he will wipe out every tear from their eyes, and death will be no more, neither will mourning nor outcry nor pain be anymore. The former things have passed away
