Connie and kids - my prayers are with you. I have such fond memories of the whole Kelley family, especially driving back the lane to tend to the garden Russ Sr. let us have back there. Those were the good old days, and memories flood back to me whenever I go along Riemer Rd. I hope that the prayers being said for you and all the memories you have of him will sustain you now and in the months to come.
