Memories Timeline


  1. I enjoyed working with Kelly. He picked on me all the time. Kept me on my toes. So sorry to hear about his passing. I will miss him. Prayers to the family.

  2. Kelly had a great smile and a fun-loving spirit. I enjoyed watching him play with Kyra and Reilly. Kelly was much too young to pass…only one year older than me! He is resting in heaven now. My condolences go out to the whole family and anyone who was affected by this tragic loss.
