Let the memory of Karly be with us forever

As many of you have learned, our Susquehanna family member, Karly Scully, passed away in a car accident this past weekend.

Although her time was cut short, we were all so blessed to have had her make such an immense impact on our lives. Despite her outwardly shy demeanor, we were lucky enough to see Karly’s infectious positive attitude and caring personality. Her quick-witted comments, trademark sayings and overwhelming sense of empathy made the dreaded college all-nighters a little easier. During our time together we were able to witness her unyielding strength, perseverance and notorious laugh that suddenly became contagious throughout a room in seconds.

There were so many pieces of our Karly Horse that made her such a unique, special and imperative part of our college family. Whether it was as silly as her hate for dust bunnies or having her teach us all about being gluten free, her little quirks are something we will always hold dear to our hearts. It’s hard to imagine what it will be like without you being there to sing along to Gavin Degraw during our dance parties, watch you attempt to make one of your crazy art projects (or recreate it after we accidently break the first one) or analyzing the latest bachelorette episode, but we know that you will always be laughing along with us for years to come.

It is our hope that this page can be a place where people who may be unable to post on her original wall but are still a significant part of both Karly’s Susquehanna and West Chester communities that can share their memories, photos and prayers for the Scully family.

As we take time to grieve over this tragedy please be sure to keep Kasey Scully and her family in your thoughts and prayers. We hope that she will be able to make a strong recovery.

Thank you so much for the outpour of love and support it means so much to everyone that loved Karly as much as we did.

With Love from Karly’s Susquehanna Family,

Jess Jozefiak, Maddy Toohey, Gabbi Stahl, Nolan Stone, Austin French and Cole Luzins

I'm sorry that you are experiencing the mourning of losing a love one. Many if not all of us has experienced this, but I would like to share a brief scripture that will may just bring you comfort.

(Revelation 21:4) And he will wipe out every tear from their eyes, and death will be no more, neither will mourning nor outcry nor pain be anymore. The former things have passed away.”

Thanks for reading."

"I am so lucky and especially thankful to have been super close with my best friend and sister, Karly.

~Karly, thank you so much for sharing my love of weird/catchy music, funny, stupid Netflix movies & shows (One Tree Hill, Greys, Gossip Girl, & every Christmas movie aired on Netflix before Christmas), and lastly being a crazy fan to our fav girl crush Taylor Swfit with me! I love you so much and I will always remember our amazing memories and fun times together. Although we are sisters the majority of our friends were the same and we absentmindedly always spent our free time together with them. Whether or not we went to concerts, the beach, or just stayed in and watched a movie at home you were there to join in on the fun with me ((and the remainder of the fam squad)).  I am tremendously happy you helped me when I needed it most. For example, when I needed outfit choices, music advice, and the most encouraging workout partner, you were there. You were always there when I needed insta, fb, and snap chat opinions ((ADVICE)). I am proud to say you were caring, happy, understanding, and smart to give me the most important sisterly advice and nice words of wisdom throughout high school, college, and in the moments of life when we were apart. I want to thank you for sharing your full heart and smiley personality leading me to easily call you my best friend, but also my brilliant younger sister. Please know I will continue to think of and remember you as a truly compassionate and overall phenomenal person. Speaking for me and the siblings, we will continue to keep the importance of the day when we all meet again in a special place in our minds. I will be looking forward to your consistent protection and guidance of our entire family, especially in the times when we miss you most.

Thanks for sharing 19 unbelievably amazing years with me.
Sisters forever<3 I love you. Love, KC"
