Hello everyone. My friend PJ Spielman's wife and 2 kids were in a terrible car accident yesterday morning. His step-daughter Skyla (13) was killed in the accident along with their two dogs. His son Riley (6) is still in critical condition along with his wife Kelly. PJ is one of the of the good guys and would take his shirt off his back to help someone. I want to start this to try and help them out with the bills they are about to face, no one saves for this. Please donate what you can if you can't donate please pray for this family during this tough time. The power of prayer is strong and if all you can donate is your time to pray for the family they would greatly appreciate it.

My mom worked with Kelly and one day my mom said her and her daughter were coming over. I was so excited to meet Skyla and Kelly!!! Me and Skyla became really good friends when we were younger.Sadly we lost touch when I moved. It hurts to know one of my good friends died but she's in a better place now so is Kelly. Praying for y'all and Praying for Riley to heal!! Love y'all!! Always Praying

I worked with PJ many years ago at the Babe's in Roanoke. He was always sweet and understand, I enjoyed working with him. Both Carter and myself had the opportunity to meet Kelly when she was pregnant with Riley. I remember thinking what a beautiful lady she was-both inside and out. I thought how lucky they both were to have found each other and what a beautiful daughter of Kelly. This is such a tragic situation. Lord I pray that you provide healing for Kelly and for Riley. I know that miracles do take place and you have the power to make them happen. I pray that this be one of the times for a miracle. I pray that Kelly's mission on this earth is not finished and that she be allowed to continue her journey here in this world. Lord I pray that you heal Riley and allow him to live his young life and grow into the man that you mean him to be. I know that it is your will be done. I pray that your will is to return both Kelly and Riley their family to finish the task that he have planned for them. Amen PJ we send you all of our blessings and love. May God continue to be with you and your family.

A Prayer For My Friend Lord, I ask You to bless my friend who is reading this right now. Where there is pain, may they find peace and mercy. Where there is self-doubt, may they gain a renewed confidence. Where there is weariness or exhaustion, give them understanding, patience, and strength. Where there is fear, reveal your love, and offer to them your courage. Give them greater vision, bless their finances, and raise up leaders and friends to support and encourage them. May their spirit always be joyous and their days rich and full with love and happiness, And may they always know that they have a friend. WE ARE STILL PRAYING AND LOVE YOU ALL ~Wells family~

Its no word that can express the sadness we feel about this. Our prayers to you and family in this difficult times. Our daughter works Mr. Spielman and we know how generous he is and the same with his family. But also its a Higher Power that can turn things around, we can loose faith in the Almighty. My prayers to all of you.

Continued prayers from the bottom of my heart for the entire family. I met Kelly at Allstate while going door to door to our local business's in Kennedale for donations for a Scholarship fund in memory of Mr. Shreves..He was my 13yr old daughters teacher that was killed June 9th. It so happened that Skyla, Kelly's daughter was also his student. Kelly jumped at the opportunity to help any way that she could (hugs included). I can honestly tell you that I have never met such a more beautiful young lady. I am praying for a miracle..and asking everyone that I know to please do the same.

My name is Jean Roozen. I am Kelly's mother and Skyla and Riley's grandmother. I am speechless at the outpouring of love and support. My heart has a huge hole that can never be healed. Skyla was the light of my life. She never went anywhere without her kindle in hand. I remember when she was about 2 1/2 she loved to watch trauma in the ER. One night they did a special on C sections. She was enthralled with it. The next day Kelly took her for an interview at a Montessori school. The woman asked Skyla what she wanted to be when she grew up and she said a pediatrician. She said to the last that she knew all about c sections. The woman was curious so she asked Skyla what a c section was. Skyla proceeded to tell her the details. The woman was in awe. Skyla was almost immediately accepted into the Montessori as she gave every detail how the procedure was done. Skyla also played the oboe. She loved to do arts and crafts. Kelly, my beautiful daughter. She's a fighter! She's support. the doctors are not hopeful but we have people praying and vigils going on all over the country....HOPE AND FAITH!!! She will beat this!! She has so much left to do!!! Riley...he is a fighter just like his mama!! God I miss my Skyla!!! I would giv all I have to have her back and to heal my daughter and grandson!!! Please please please pray for them. Believe that miracles happen.
