Dear Michael, John and MaryAnn,

I was so very sorry to hear about your mother's passing. Your entire family holds a very dear and special place in my heart and my life. I am extremely unhappy that I could not see you personally this weekend, but please accept my sincerest best wishes and condolences at this time.

My wife Sandi and I send John D IV, Michael and Mary Ann and the rest of Mrs. Kelly's family "prayers for the peace that passeth understanding."

Although I only met Mrs. Kelly on a few occasions, I knew her late husband John D from our time together in the civic community, as well as Michael and Mary Ann. Without knowing her particularly well, the family she raised and anchored became the testimony of the character, faith and integrity of Mrs. Kelly.

On occasion, I've been able to bring in Michael to speak at the Rotary Club of Wilmington, where he formerly was a member. His Irish humor -- like his Dad's -- always was edgy, colorful and even earthy. One day as he finished a talk I'd arranged, I noted it was one of the tamest I'd ever heard Michael deliver. As I thought about it, I realized, with his mother present at the Rotary Club, along with his life, he took a quieter, calmer approach out of respect for his mother.

Another time, when my son interned a few summers for New Castle County, Mary Ann was working there at the time in the Law Dept. Knowing it was one of the first forays into the work world by my youngest son, Mary Ann assured me that she "would keep an eye on him."

What a great family. And, as one would expect, it started at home, I'm certain, with Mrs. Kelly. We send our condolences to the entire family.
