LAKEMAN -- Lakeman Kelli Marie Lakeman July 22, 1973 March 22, 1991 Can it be 14 years since your unexpected departure? At times it seems like the years are double that while at other times it seems like it was only yesterday. No matter how long it has been since your death, your absence is still felt as a void. This year for your anniversary some kind friends sponsored a star in the constellation Cygnus. The star's name is Kelli Marie Lakeman. It was fitting to have it be in the Swan as it represents beauty. Your place at the table for all our family meals is still remembered. The sounds of your voice and laughter still make music to our ears. You would now be 31 years old. Rather than feel cheated, we have chosen to work every day at feeling blessed with each moment that we had with you. Time is a great healer if we choose to continue on. Memories keep you close at all times. Our love for you is forever because families are forever. We love you, Kelli Girl. Your Loving Family
