Kelly Plasker is a weather forecaster for KCBD, but more than that, she's an absolute ray of sunshine.

Even though KCBD is not affiliated with our radio stations, several of us just really love Kelly personally. I think it's a weird misconception that we wouldn't. Lubbock is, after all, the biggest small town in the world. We'd be remiss not to know such a lovely person.

Kelly recently suffered a parent's worst nightmare, and our hearts are broken for her. Kelly's son Thomas died suddenly and unexpectedly. Kelly's friend has set up a GoFundMe to help her pay for Thomas' funeral costs.

If you've remembered your coat on a cold day, or brought an umbrella of a rainy day because Kelly was there to help you out, please return the favor by donating a few dollars on the GoFundMe page.
