Just wanted to share a poem I wrote a few years ago. I would always send it to Steve during the holidays. He is still missed...

A Clerk's Christmas

'Twas the night before Christmas, when all through the place.
All the court was quiet, while a few filed their case.
The files were stacked high and kept with great care.
In hopes five o'clock, would soon be there.

The orders were swift, when they finally came.
As Kevin yelled directions, to all the names.
Go Michael. Go Scott. Go Alyssa and Rita.
On Jill, Brandon, Jose. Go Pat and Dorecea.

When the work was all done, they began to shout.
"Hey Joe, there's more records to ship out!"
As Frances cleans the counter and prepares the day's end.
They all begin to wonder, "Where did Steve go again?"

But down the hall, the jolly one appears.
With such laughter, joy and a ruckus cheer.
With his white curly hair and little round belly.
Wait, that's not Santa. It's just Steve Kelly.

In a flash, once again, he was out of sight.
As he proclaims, "Merry Christmas to all, and to all a good-night".

I have just today,learned of Steve's passing and it is a sad day. I had the pleasure of attending St, Clare's, Bellarmine and UCLA with him long ago.
Knowing he is no longer somewhere just
"being Steve" and bringing joy to others
makes me sad, but having known him and the person he was will always bring me happiness.

I have the honor of knowing this great man for 20+ years. I'm so sad to hear this tragic news. I'm blessed to have shared some wonderful times together. I will miss your smile, laugh, knowledge about everything and everyone and all your great life stories. Please only repeat the good ones about me up there.
Steve, you will be missed by all who knew you. I love you Steve.
