In Memory Of Kelsey Shelton Smith-Briggs

Kelsey Shelton Smith was born December 28, 2002

Following is a description of Kelsey from her mommy, Raye Dawn:

"Kelsey had a little giggle she would do and cover her mouth when she thought something was so funny...

She knew where she wanted to be, and she had a smile and personality that could brighten up any room.

Everyone that met her fell in love with her....

I took her to get her ears pierced. She was so grown up about it (more than adults usually are). It was a VERY special time for us. She knew she was going to have earrings just like her mommy, and she was so excited about that. When she was all done the first thing she said was, "I haffa (have to) go show grandma (Gayla Smith)!"

To put it all together, SHE WAS PERFECT... and that is just the bottom line... I know all parents say that, but she REALLY was..."

Kelsey left this world at the age of two and a half from blunt force trauma to her abdomen. Her step-father, Mike Porter, is serving a 30 year sentence after pleading to enabling child abuse. He pled to enabling versus being charged with murder and sexual assault, his original charges.


Kelsey's mom, Raye Dawn Smith is serving a 27 year sentence for enabling child abuse. She's awaiting an appeal.

Please visit http://freekelseysmom.com to find out more.

This tribute site is for the maternal family only. Please be respectful and leave any messages for the paternal family on their memorial site.

Because of the actions and statements of the paternal family, any comments left for them will be edited or deleted. This site is for Kelsey's memory. Please respect that and ONLY leave comments for Kelsey and her grieving Maternal family. Again, this is a memorial site FOR KELSEY, any negative and hateful comments will be deleted.

God bless you!

Sorry for all of the suffering you endured in your short little life. Rejoice in the knowledge that your Mommy loved and still loves you everyday. Spread your wings and fly beautiful lil girl. Many people that never knew you think of you and know that you are now with the sibling that you never met. Enjoy your shared love of your Mommy, now and forever until you see her again someday.

I am the father of a new baby girl and my heart just broke after reading about this story. I know she is in a better place now with Jesus and no harm will ever come to her again. RIP Kelsey.

Kelsey, I love and miss you so much. I'll see you soon I promise.

I think both mr. Porter and Kelseys mom are where they should be. I am sorry but its the truth. Kelsey is the victim. They say some people should not have children and this is the prime example

Rest peacefully, sweet angel. I promise I will fight child abuse until my dying day, and I will not stop fighting for your mommy is home where she belongs. I love you, precious baby girl!

Kelsesey, I did not get a chance to meet you, however you seem like a really sweet and lovely girl. All I can say is you will be missed and always remembered and loved in the hearts of those who loved you. And I will do my best to make sure that your death was not in vain! I promise you that much sweetheart. Rest in peace sweetie.
