Dear Mrs. Thatcher and Thatcher family, thank you from the bottom of my heart for sharing your dear, sweet Kelly with us. She was one of the warmest people that I have ever met in my life and she was always a pleasure to be around. Her belly laugh was infectious and almost as endearing as her insatiable love of chicken fingers. I’m hard pressed to recall a memory from high school that did not feature Kelly in some way. She was a wonderful, and fiercely loyal friend and although we would go years without seeing one another each time we reconnected it felt like a piece of me found its way home. I will truly miss her. Rest in peace.

In addition to being a kind nurse and a wonderful advocate for her patients, Kelly was a great mother to her girls. She loved sharing stories about them as she flew around the unit helping everyone else out. I like to believe that she will be very busy in heaven sharing her wonderful spirit. Praying for you and your family, especially your girls. With Fond Memories, Lisa K.

I am just learning right now-February 21 at 5:15, of Kelly’s passing. The news came to me through reading the cape cod times obituaries. Our family is heartbroken to hear this news and we send our best wishes to Mrs. Thacher, Mrs. Sharpe, Mr. Duarte, Matthew (who my sister Hope went to high school with) and the rest of your family. I will pray for Kelly and possibly book a mass intention for her at my earliest opportunity.

Kelly was the big sister I never “had” but always had all the same. Growing up, the Thacher house was my home away from home and Kelly was always there for me in every way a big sister could be. From silly dance parties to deep talks, stealing clothes (yup - totally guilty) to advice on boys - Kelly and I pretty much always saw the world in the same way - a stage, an adventure, living in the now. I will never forget a moment that Coach Thacher and I had one day when I walked into the house with dark maroon lipstick and black eyeliner on (likely a girls night out for all you can eat salad and breadsticks at Olive Garden). Coach brought me over to a beautiful picture of Kelly blown up. She had a white tank top on, beach in the background, absolutely stunning. I. The bottom right corner was a picture of Kelly as well (clearly younger) with dark maroon lipstick and dark black eye liner. Coach said “you see this beautiful girl? No need for all that mess on your face. Don’t cover your natural beauty.” I saw myself in Kelly in that moment and also saw the pride her Father had in her; uncontainable and bursting out of him from every angle. I’ve carried that moment with me my whole life and I’ve even passed the similar “lesson” onto my daughters using the same method. Kelly was a beautiful soul inside and out. Her insatiable thirst for life allowed her to live it to its fullest - a big being that would light up every room she walked into. I love you Kel and I will miss you terribly. I find peace knowing you are with Coach, united once again and waiting for us on the other side. #fallenangel Love Erica (Lil Sis)

I am a grandmother to one of the children in Khloe's class. I would see Kelly sometimes at drop off and usually at pick up. Most recently the children would go to the baseball field next door and play after school. This is where I had some lovely conversations with Kelly. My heartfelt condolences to all, I did not know her well, but knew her well enough to see she was special.

Marybeth & Family, I remember Kelly at our Knollwood Drive house, she was in my garden and loved playing with the little Gray water bugs we would find under leaves. That’s what we decided to call them anyway?? A Few years later trying to catch the little chipmunks at Shadow Lake condo. Never was able to catch one. I told her if I ever did, I would send it to her. She asked me for many years at Thanksgiving if I ever got one. The last time was at Megan’s wedding. The things kids remember. So sorry MB Miss ya....

Kelly was magnetic - kind, funny, beautiful. I was blessed to call her a friend. I remember looking up to her the way a little sister would look up to someone. She was a year older but about 10 years cooler. Her kindness and friendship was truly a gift to a quirky, braces-clad middle schooler like me. She let me borrow her jeans which was about the edgy I ever felt in my life! Lol. And she came to school with me in my 7th grade year to check out the girls playing ball and the general vibe of harwich. Of course her dad was a huge part of my life and Kelly was a beast on the court. By the time I got to HHS, Kel was already running the joint and I was so grateful to already call her friend and teammate. I have a photo of us together with our other friend Kim Craft when we were on the road for one of our AAU tournaments the first year we played (I rode the bench) and now both of those precious people are gone. I’m praying for her whole family, but especially the 3 beautiful children she left here on earth.

Oh my heart goes out to Kelly’s 3 beautiful girls. I can’t get them out of my head since I heard the news today. I was lucky enough to have Peyton and Khloe afternoons at preschool and loved taking a peek at willlow in the baby carrier at pick up. Kelly was always so very kind and appreciative when picking them up and I could tell she was a great mom. As I am reading her obituary I begin to realize I knew her mom and dad when I worked at camp Lyndon as a swim instructor. I was only a junior in high school and Kelly was probably two years old. Life sure makes one big circle on Cape Cod. My prayers go out to her family and those precious little girls. Be strong for your mom girls and always hold her close in your hearts. She will always love you.

We didn’t know Kelly Very well, But the Dockerys moved into the house behind us maybe 2? Years ago now, and right away we loved them as neighbors! They all were so kind and nice. We did get to know Brian more as we would see him out in the yard more and started talking more and more. Kelly and the girls we had met and talked to a few times, they were so sweet, but every time she always said if we ever needed anything then never hesitate to ask or come run over and knock on the door, same with Brian. And we would do the same in return. We would watch Out for each other’s houses if we went on vacation. We would keep an eye on each other And help each other like neighbors should! I would love hearing those little girls laughing and playing outside in the yard though, with Kelly laughing too and chasing them around. She loved those girls dearly and was a wonderful mother and wife. We offer our sincere condolences to those 3 beautiful girls and Brian. You guys are in our thoughts, and will still be there to help with anything we can! ❤️
