I am so saddened to have learned of Kelly's passing. There are so many things that have run through my mind in these past few days but I am so pleased that as we got older, we gained a great deal of respect for each other. My condolences to my Son Johnny, his Sister Angie, and Brothers Derek, Jimmy, and Jessie. You only have one Mother, and I just want you to know that Kelly was a beautiful woman with a great heart. Always cherish your memories of her and have faith in the promise of Jesus that one day you will be re-united with her.
