    Dear Mark & Kristi: Thinking of you during this time. I imagine his entrance into his reward was met by many loved ones who have gone before, including my own father, Dean N Kelley. I can somehow see a special tour together over in that grand and glorious place, just the 2 of them. Dad always thought a lot of Kenny. I have fond memories from our childhood of visits to Mulberry.

    We will unfortunately be out of town and unable to attend his home-going celebration, but you will certainly be in our prayers.
