Dearest Kimberly

I just heard and I am truly sorry about your Dad's passing. I know you loved him very much and you will miss him. At least he was able to see Megan so very happy at the beginning of her new journey.

All the best my Love

To Todd and the family of Billy Kelley,
We were teammates in 1949 on a championship football, the Hurricanes coached by Herbie Morewitz. We also went to the Boys Club together and he was a good member of the team and the club. He was a good father and a good person and I was proud to be his friend. Sincerely, Mickey Marcella and family.
