Remember Kelly, Inc. is a non-profit organization established in 2006 as a memorial honoring the life of Kelly Diane Guffey, a 32 year old woman with a loving spirit and an infectious smile who lost a courageous three year battle to carcinoid cancer.

As a pediatric nurse, Kelly created a legacy of hope by caring for children less fortunate than she and was dedicated to providing a better quality of life to all she embraced. Kelly’s spirit embodied a love of life, a compassion for tolerance and understanding and an appreciation of the joy and beauty of life’s bounty.

The purpose of Remember Kelly, Inc. is to provide funds to support a scholarship which will encourage enrollment and retention of qualified nursing education students. As a health care provider, Kelly realized the need for dedicated nurses and the importance of securing funds to ensure educational opportunities for licensure in the nursing profession.

Remember Kelly, Inc. awards an annual $1000 scholarship to assist a young male or female student interested in a career in nursing. This scholarship is available to a worthy graduate of North Gaston High School in Dallas, North Carolina.

It was only a sunny smile,
And little it cost in the giving;
But it scattered the night
Like morning light,
And made the day worth living.


"Life is precious and dear, always keep smiling, always keep fighting and never give up hope."

Kelly Diane Guffey, April 2005
