To the Morton Family: I am Kelsey Elliott's mom. Emily and Kelsey were 'recovery friends' and I should say they still are. What a tough common thing we have and so do many others. I pray God gives you the strength to get through this and you will lean on him in return. Emily - I met you way back and what a ray of sunshine you were for Kelsey and STILL are. You rest young lady!

I’m so thankful I got the chance to know you. You were one of my favorite students. You had such a love for life. You were a ray of sunshine and always kept me laughing. You are truly one of a kind. Rest In Peace and I hope to see you again one day. ❤️
Jerry & Rebecca Porter 2019-06-16 15:11:49
So sorry, our hearts sadden with yours. Hard for us to understand because it’s not the proper cycle of life. We know, coming from the same experience, our daughter was 27. Time doesn’t necessarily heal this one completely, but it and god will soften the sorrow as time goes on. Don’t blame yourselves, as you know deep down what kind of parents you are. Again, so sorry for your loss. Our thoughts and prayers are with you and your family.
Kelli Ottesen 2019-06-18 23:59:13

Heartbreaking. Only knew you for a couple months before I moved away from GA beginning of April. I just learned of your passing and cannot believe it. So sweet , so genuine, so hilarious. Can't believe this . You were literally such a light in such a dark time in my life with my issues. I wish I had have stayed in touch. Prayers for your family!
