For all of you who had the pleasure of knowing Keli, if only through a passing smile or a friendly hello, she was an inspiration to us all. Kelis wants and needs were of a simple nature.
She so enjoyed reading, plant-ing her garden (oh the sunflowers!), her cat Ziggy and, whenever money allowed, making improvements to her wonderful chalet. Anyone remembering Keli bringing over one of the creations she whipped up in her kitchen, knows what a marvel of caring she put in everything she prepared.
I so loved my visits to Blaine, where she proudly showed it all to her mom. Keli took me to the Inn at Semiahmoo, where she worked - a serene and beautiful place.
I enjoyed meeting her co-workers and walking along the bay. It is a memory never to be forgotten. I picked up treasures along the way...
Keli echoes through the winds that blow, or newfallen snow, and through the rain and sunrays that make the flowers grow. So, as you continue on life's journey, it will warm my heart if Keli is remembered once in awhile...
Love from across the miles,
Keli Scotts mom
