While there are no words to describe the deep loss the Travis Mills Foundation feels after the passing of Kelly Roseberry, Vice President of Programming, and her son, Noah, there are words, however, that will forever epitomize the person Kelly was: Loving Wife – Grateful Mother – Daughter – Fierce Veteran Advocate – Patriotic – Loyal Friend.Kelly would do anything for anyone, and often demonstrated that in her work with veterans throughout the years and in her relationship with her colleagues at TMF. Both she and her husband, Chris, the love of her life, moved to Maine in 2017 to embark on the adventure of establishing the Travis Mill Foundation.She changed so many lives at TMF – she even saved lives, especially of those veterans she personally invited to participate in the Foundation’s Warrior PATHH program for Post-Traumatic Stress. The Family Program at the Foundation was where Kelly’s skills and compassion as a physical therapist shone. She would find a way to adapt any activity that a post-911 recalibrated veteran wanted to try – the sky was the limit. She gave so many people hope – especially the veterans and their families who thought they could never have a normal life post-injury. Kelly’s dedication to her family, especially her daughter, Emma Grace, was steadfast. On National Daughter’s Day, Kelly recently wrote: “To the one that made me a Mom. So blessed to get a front row seat to watch her conquer the world.”To Emma, if you’re anything like your Mom – and we know you are – you will do incredible things; and always stay a Daddy’s Girl – Chris needs you now and forever as he mourns the loss of your mom and little brother. We will be heartbroken for what feels like forever, but we’ll do what Kelly would have wanted us to do, make TMF the BEST veterans organization it can be.Kelly will be remembered for her gentle way but also her willingness to say “No” to anyone or anything that didn’t properly serve her beloved post-911 recalibrated veterans. She had an immense collection of red, white and blue shoes, clothing and accessories – she even rocked a pair of heels embellished with the colors of our flag while she was 9 months pregnant at our 3rd Annual Building Strength Gala. Go Army. Beat Navy.Per the family’s wishes, donations in Kelly’s memory to benefit the Travis Mills Foundation can be made here >>> Travis Mills
