Rest in Peace

by Stacey

"Somerville Sends Our Love"

Today a funeral procession of hundreds of cars passed our school to the see the scene above.

May Kelly know how deeply her death has touched this community, always tight knit, now closer.

May Kelly’s parents continue to rely on the love that surrounds them today.

May the family on whose property this tragedy occurred find the peace they will need.

May the au pair who drove the car know that the love that is pouring from us all is sent to her too.

And may we all smile in the sunshine that returned today for the first time since this happened. We have been blanketed by thick clouds and curtains of rain. Today, the sky shone a shocking blue as if welcoming Kelly with open arms. May she rest in it’s peace.
