Dear Nelda, Dick and family, I am very sorry to learn of your daughter's passing. Though we have hope in knowledge she's home with the Lord, it's still very hard pass for us who yet remain. May God's comfort uphold you and bring you peace through the vale of sorrow.

Kendra was all about helping and encouraging others as much as she was physically able to do. At a low point in my life on December 1, 2017 she shared with me something that has left a lasting impact on my life...... "The past forces people to not enjoy today. Philippians 4:4,13-14. You can't change the past or the future. Proverbs 3:5-6. Listen to your heart where God lives and not your head where satan plays. Each day I step out in faith. Romans 8:31. God fills me with Him and His Word. I don't feel alone and when someone comes into my life, I listen to my heart and move forward. Your FAITH should not stand in the wisdom of men but in the power of God." I weep as I write this because having Kendra as a friend made my life better. She is sorely missed already and I so look forward to seeing her again someday! Steve

I was stunned when I read this! It has been a long time since our our lives intersected. I was dating her cousin Kelly, we vacationed down at OC and Rehobeth during the summers. We had the best times. Such great memories. I’m so sorry to hear of this loss. Kendra has a wonderful spirit.
