Memories Timeline


  1. Chrissie my heart is aching for your husband Joey and your 3 children. I have been reflecting the past couple days and thinking about all the good times we had since high school! Some things really made me laugh. Now as I sit here and mourn you please know you will be missed terribly by so many people. I will always have a special place in my heart for you and will always think of you when I hear an Elton John song! Love you till we meet again my friend ❤️

  2. The eternal light will guide you to your next journey and may it provide comfort to your family in their darkest hour.

  3. Chrissie ~ I can't even describe the pain i feel in my heart. How i wish you were still here with us. You will be missed more then you'll ever know. My thoughts and prayers are with Joe, the kids and your family. Always in my heart ~ May you RIP xoxo

  5. I can not believe I was just doing this for Bizzy and I had you as well as the rest of us but now I have to do it again for you?! I can not even begin to tell you that this is all not right for me at all!!!!!!!! I fee like this is not real and probably will for a long time! You filled my void with Bizzy as a big sister does for her little sister and I can never repay you for the last 3 months of holding me together. Gabriella Nico and Madelina are all numb and are hurting…. They do not understand and as you know I have always and I know you always said "Kelly you can't shelter them from everything" to have to tell them this was the absolute hardest thing in the world!!!!!! Back to back heaven gaining Angels was to hard for me to grasp let alone my babies and your babies. Well the legacy of the "Badara's" will live on forever now. You took care of my children and loved them just as much as me if not more. I will tell you this I promise I will guide and take care of your girls and little Joey and of course big Joey the best way I know how too and I know you never would doubt that! Not only me but everyone of our family members are ready willing and able. Chrissie you were my sister my mentor my children's world and I can not begin to tell you how our community has pulled together to help I can never thank them enough! Most importantly your children will miss you as well as big Joey there lives will never be the same without you, you were there world! They will live on with the memories and never will forget what you have done for them and how you raised them to be grown responsible teens and adult. You defiantly did a great job on these kids you were so proud and should continue being that proud! Now please as you fly through the gates of heaven to your final resting place join Daddy,aunt Ceil, little and big Grandma and our favorite of all time Bizzy shine down,protect and guide your children and the rest of us through life as well as the rest of your friends and family.
