Kela was our matriarch, the shining light of our family. She loved sitting at the head of the table and taking it all in with the entire family gravitating to her throughout the day. She will be dearly missed, but will continue blessing us with the memories she left behind. There are 3 words that described her - As it is, these remain: faith, hope and love, the three of them; and the greatest of them is love. 1 Corinthians 13:13.
