Sara Margaret Grossi, Musgrove’s frequent travel partner, and close friend, also expressed her sorrow on Facebook.
‘I could always cheer her up no matter how big the problem with pistachio ice cream. I can’t fix this with a few scoops this time, but I can keep loving her even though she’s not here to lay under the stars with me anymore and guess constellations. We’ll meet again one day in those stars and awkwardly wink at one another and laugh.’
In another Facebook post, a colleague at UW Health remembered her.
‘Kelsey Musgrove was one of the kindest and most positive residents I’ve had the privilege of working with, and she was well on her way to becoming a great surgeon,’ Aaron Zachary posted. ‘She’s gone way too soon and had so much more life to live. May we all remember the kindness she showed us and strive to be great and kind the way she was.’
