In memory of Kelsea Phelps

Created by Family Of Kelsea Phelps

Kelsea Phelps

Kelsea Lyn was given methadone by her friends' mother one afternoon, for a sore back. Kelsea had spinal stenosis in her back that caused her a great deal of pain. Her friends' mom, who we will call “Lori”, is now in prison. She took it upon herself to give Kelsea over 25 methadone pills, in a bottle, with directions how to take them. Kelsea did not know it was methadone. Kelsea trusted this mother. Kelsea went to sleep and on the first day of her senior year, when I went to wake her up, she had passed away. I died that day with my daughter. My life has forever changed, as everyone who loses someone to drugs does. Kelsea was not a drug addict. She was a victim to a drug/pain addicted woman who took my daughter's life. I miss her every second of every minute of every hour of every day. I love her, more than the law allows. Kisses to you Kelsea.

I can't say I feel your pain, because I don't know what it feels like to lose someone to drugs. I do know how it feels to just lose someone. By the looks of this picture, she looks like a fun, always happy, light up the room when she walks in kind of person. I am so sorry. I hope you remember the good times with her now that she is gone. Rest in peace Kelsea Phelps

This makes me so mad that this woman gave these pills to Kelsea and knew that it would kill her. I think this evil woman should be locked up for the rest of her life. If this was an accident the lady must be really stupid. Rest In Peace Kelsea

Wow. What happened to this girl is very sad. I hope her mother gets better and does not forget that she will meet her again.
