    Sweet Chelsea … I always admired your determination to succeed and your willingness to help others. You truly were a bright light every where you were. I am so sorry to hear this very sad news and you will be greatly missed and never forgotten. I am so sad for your parents .siblings and friends. I know your Dad and Mom were very proud of that strong willed and determined young lady that you were. I remember the very first time I met you and what an impression you made. I haven’t seen you for a while but I thought of you often. What a tremendous loss to everyone who was blessed to have known you. Go run and be free and I look forward to seeing you again pretty lady. You touched my heart in a very special way and I will always remember that beautiful smile.

    To my dear best friend, my sister, my ace. You definitely hurt me, crushed me and I’m truly heartbroken from this. I just don’t understand .What am I gonna do now, who I’m gone call now. I will NEVER find another friend like you. I love you so so much and I know you loved me too. I’m so thankful and grateful to have had so many memories with you and boy did we have them, from sneaking out the house, going into burnt up houses, going sledding in fish boats, and just all around having a good time together. You were the life of the party. You have always had my back. My heart aches for your family. Your with Chad now whom you’ve missed so so much and whew I know Martin is getting down right now as well, y’all are enjoying heaven. You watch over me now and protect me like you always have and also Karmyn. I hate you didn’t get to meet her and right when we were going to meet I get the bad news. I will see you again one day. I love you Chelsea Rhea.

    Hi Julia. I know you from Deb’s craft and jewelry rooms. I wanted to send my sympathy and prayers for you and your family. I pray for peace for you all at this hard time. Please take care.

  • Kimberly Noblin Cook Posted January 13, 2022 2:52 pm

    Tommy, Julia and family!! Oh my heart- it aches for each of you. I remember little bouncy wild Chelsea. She could always make you smile. While I didn’t know her as an adult, I remember fondly a sweet rambunctious, and adorable little girl. My prayers are with you all that your pain may be eased with the wonderful memories that live on.

  • Levon Greene-McIntosh Posted January 13, 2022 4:20 pm

    Chelsea West– just know that your name lives on. I remember when I first moved to the “country” from the big ol city of Oxford and started at Stovall-Shaw, I was the new kid on the block, and you were one of the first friends I made there. You were kind, LOUD, and definitely the life of the party. As I said on FB, the friends I made in elementary were more like my brothers and sisters. We didn’t see color at all. Although we didn’t keep in touch in adulthood, you will be deeply missed. To her family, I am so so sorry for your loss. I will be keeping you all lifted in prayer.

  • Gina Katz Posted January 13, 2022 7:43 pm

    Julia I’m so sorry for your loss! Big prayers and Lots of love from us….

  • Edith Minor Posted January 13, 2022 7:51 pm

    I still can’t believe you’re gone. Mama Edith only you could call me that. I loved you just like my own. I know you and Chad are together. You will missed by many. You touched so many lives your heart so big. Fly high babygirl you’re with those you loved so much

    Julia and Tommy, I am so very sorry for your loss. There are no words I can give that will help right now but my prayers are with you. You will see Chelsea again.

    My condolences to the family,sorry for your loss. I’m so heartbroken hearing such bad news about my dear friend Chelsea. We go wayyyy back and we have sooooo many memories together that I will ALWAYS cherish. I’ve cried and beat myself up bc you recently asked for us to hang out and I never got the chance to so until we meet again my friend I will always love you girl & I have always told you that after every conversation we’ve had especially when cheering our Tarheels on bc you definitely was a big fan whether we won or loss. Chelsea Rhea you will be missed dearly my girl. 🥲

  • Bill and Rhonda Lloyd Posted January 14, 2022 1:22 pm

    Adam, Rhonda and I are so very sorry, you and your family are in our thoughts and prayers.

  • Fallon Owens Posted January 15, 2022 2:32 am

    Chelsea I will always cherish all the memories that we had together. Even though we hadn’t seen each other in years every now and then we were talk and I always pick up like we just seen each other. Growing up we had our ups and downs. But every time we had our downs and fight the next day we would see each other and act like nothing ever happened. I regret that life got in the way and we did not stay close as we got older . we both went our separate ways but still remain friends. I will miss you and all your good stories and laughs. I hope you’re at those pearly gates with Chad Martin Scott Michael and everybody else we lost.. I’ll see you again one day I love you girl ♥️Fallon
