    I will always remember the warm, Summer days in Uncle Frank and Aunt Vi’s front yard. Long before they built the pool in the back, there was so much activity in that front yard beside the carport.

    With four boys, and so many family and friends, it was a place of joy in my youth. Kelly always seemed happy and full of energy. That is how I will always remember him.

    My condolences to Mike, Pat, and Tony. I hope you can find solace from the loss of your brother. My thoughts will be with my cousins and the memories of a life well lived. God Bless.

    So sorry to hear of the passing of your Dad. The short time I have known you It is evident that he raised a fine hard working man. You should be proud. You now have memories that will last a lifetime. See you when you come back to work.

    Loved Kelly’s enthusiasm! When we’d come in to the class, you could hear the turkey call, or whatever call he was using, depending on the season! Even as our welding instructor! He’d take the imaginary stinger in his hand and like sticking the rod to the steel, he’d say, “Just let it burn in there! Let it burn!” 👍Fun times! Praying for y’all! Psalm 121
