    Oh Kelley, from many swim meets sitting for days supporting our kids , cotton candy snow shots in the hot tub, camping in southern Missouri, helping you stage homes for showing and you housing me when I was homeless…I couldn’t have asked for a better friend to be there with me. I love you now and cannot wait till I can hug you again. Please watch over all of us. Hug your dad and my parents too. Love Kerrie

    Kelley, (heavy sigh) oh girl, the MEMORIES!!
    How we found one another on campus is a story unto itself. I knew then, we would remain connected for life- and we did just that. Does it matter we were 25 the last time we laid eyes one another? I was the first non family member to hold Aubrey❤️. Tara, Manito, Portland, roadtrips to nowhere and spagettios and, save the best for last: PRIEST LAKE BABY!!
    Damn you made life larger, better, sunnier…
    The heart of a servant. Thank you my friend for loving me the way you love is and will be like no other. Until we meet again
    “Porco”. Cheryl. You done good, Kelley : your dash made a difference. 💔💗😢😘🙏

    So very sorry to hear of Kelley’s passing. Kelley was such a big part of my childhood…I have such fond memories of time spent not only at her home and but also camping with her family. My thoughts are with the Rogan family and with her children and extended family. Kelley was full of light, love and fun…so much fun. She will be missed.

    Hannah, Derek, and Aubrey,
    I am so sad to have to write this. I can’t imagine the pain you are feeling. Your mom played a big role in my life growing up and I always considered her like a second mother, as I know many did. I always loved running across the street because she would let us pick raspberries and treat us as her own. I am very thankful that I had such a wonderful babysitter and role model. I thought of her very often and always prayed for her.

    I’ve been hearing “Whatever Lola wants, Lola Gets” sung by you in my head ever since I heard the sad news. Walking to school together, laughing a lot, climbing over Mr Edwards fence to each other’s yards, Jenny Lake … I grew up with you as my other sister. I will always feel better when I remember you, LOVE

    candle 1Kelley — you were my friend at Shop N Save. I loved your sense of humor, and I think I figured out how to make you laugh! God’s grace and peace to your family & friends.

    My deepest sympathy to the family of Kelly Rogan. I graduated with her and spent time with her at a couple of the class reunions. I followed her battle with cancer on Facebook. She was a strong lady and now she can rest. So sorry for everyone’s loss, Renee Audette♥️

    My dearest Kelley, You were nothing short of the bravest person I know. You showed nothing but fight through this nightmare of cancer. You endured so much pain and did it with grace. I loved you dearly and you will forever be in my heart and I am so grateful to have known you these past 12 years. I am thankful you are no longer in pain and pray you are riding a motorcycle in the great outdoors up there. Prayers to your children and Charlie during this horrific time for them and their love for you was abundant. Ill see you again some day my sweet angel.

    candle 1Kelley!! Summer in Monterey, CA. You were staying with aunt andie. We were 16 and 15. You were so funny and adventurous. We listened to Peter frampton over and over. “ can’t hear you!! I’ve got headphones on!” Cheech and Chong. “Dave’s not here!!” Endless bowls of captain crunch. Best summer ever. The visit to your home in St. Louis… amazing lady. Amazing legacy. So honored to have known you. Peace now.
