Please allow me to tell you about a beautiful woman named Kelsey Qualls.
Kelsey was a courageous breast cancer survivor.
She was a force to be reckoned with, lighting up every room she entered with her vibrant presence.
Her work ethic was unparalleled, which was evident during the time she spent as a dedicated manager at The Buckle. That's where she met the love of her life, Carlos, who she married in 2016.
Kelsey and Carlos were eager to start their family. Although it was challenging, they were elated when she became pregnant and couldn't wait to experience parenthood.
Kelsey’s parents, Rich and Barb, were also filled with excitement and anticipation. On Monday, August 20, 2018, they were five short days away from officially becoming grandparents for the first time.
Everything changed later that day when they received news that Kelsey was being rushed to the hospital. Before they knew it, they were on a flight from Amarillo to Dallas, Texas to be with her.
In a matter of hours, Rich and Barb’s world was turned upside down. Their precious grandson, Levontae, did not survive. Tragically, Kelsey passed away as well due to complications with her traumatic delivery.
She and Levontae might be gone from this earth, but they will never be forgotten.
Rich and Barb had been looking forward to being grandparents for months. So much so that they pulled up stakes in Michigan just two months ago to be closer to both Kelsey and their other daughter, Lindsey, in Texas.
Please consider donating to help them out during this devastating time. A fund has been set up to raise money to help with the following expenses:
- Hotel stay in Dallas
- Clothing for their daughter and grandson’s funerals (they left Amarillo so abruptly and had no idea they would be needing this attire)
- Funeral costs
- Travel costs (flight from Amarillo to Dallas and rental car)
- Any other related expenses they may incur
