Life is definely too short. I just talk to Big Zach not long ago when he was at Al's barber shop and my brother (Henderson) gave the phone to Zach for me to holla at. We laugh and talked about old times we had growing up. I remember leaving his neighbors house across the street (Jose Hannah)and Big Zach would holla at me we would laugh and joke. Big Zach even showed me some of his college football tapes when he played. Yeah Big Zach will be missed. Love life, the one your with and those close to ya.
May God bless your family at this time.
On Behave of the Kelley family we extend our sincere prayers to the Bivens/ Black family may God keep you strong. Sincerity Butch,Paulette kelley
Mrs. Marie, I want to send my prayers to you and the rest of the family. May God bless you as you go thru this time of sorrow, for he said in his word he will never leave us for he is right by our side. Its hard to say good-bye to the one we love, as we know Paul is gone to a better place and we know we will see him soon. You will always be in my prayers and God will see you thru. To my nephew Zachary Jr, God knows its going to be hard for you as the years come forward, and you see your friends playing with their dads, just
know that your dad is looking down and smiling at you and saying that's my boy (lol), as you play football, and what ever you planned to do in life. as long as you keep your dad in your heart, he will always be there and looking down on you and your brother. When you see its hard to bare and seem like you cant make it, go to God in prayer and for he will see you thru. If you need me call me.

My best friend is gone He will be truly missed. I loved him so much.
But I do not want you to be ignorant, brethren, concerning those who have fallen asleep, lest you sorrow as others who have no hope. For if we believe that Jesus died and rose again, even so God will bring with Him those who sleep in Jesus. For this we say to you by the word of the Lord, that we who are alive and remain until the coming of the Lord will by no means precede those who are asleep. For the Lord Himself will descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of an archangel, and with the trumpet of God. And the dead in Christ will rise first. Then we who are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air. And thus we shall always be with the Lord. Therefore comfort one another with these words. 1 Thessalonians 4:13-18 NKJV.
I love you Tee Ree and my prayers are with you.
