My prayers go out to all of us who are mourning the lost of Kris. I've dealt with death and loss a lot throughout my life but this one has been very tough for me. I have so many unanswered questions. Why? How? When? SMH. Don't take the people in your lives for granted. Please keep me, and all of the people who loved Kris in your prayers.

**Updated** Kris has recieved several heartfelt tributes from her former colleagues and celebrity friends. Read a heartfelt message from rapper, Maino below.

Unbelievable to hear about the passing of you Ms Kris Kelley. I will never forget the love and hospitality you've shown me and my music. U were one of many few people I believed that had genuine love for me. And over the years u had proved that to me in countless ways. Will never forget your spirit and laughter. How u would call me and tell me that u were crazier than me. U made me fall in love wit Chicago and allowed me to feel at home at WGCI over and over again. Will never forget the time u got me so drunk off sidecars that I was sick the next morning. But u sent me a sandwich, soup and tea to my hotel room. Lmao thank u Kris Kelley. I remember our talks and ur laughter. U were tough but had a Golden Heart. It is unfortunate to see u leave us but I just hope that where u are now is truly God's Kingdom. My deepest Condolences to ur family and friends Kris. U will be forever missed by the people you've made ur impression upon. So this one's for u Kris ...I'm taking sidecars to the head in ur memory because I know u wouldn't want me to be sad. U would want me to be free and smile. God Bless u Kris, Very sincere, Your friend Maino #KrisKelley #WGCI #Chicago

We love Maino for this post! My friend Brittney was actually the person to bring him the soup to his hotel... lol. Just another example of how Kris took care of her people.
