For the family of Lloyd Kelley:
I have, for years, talked with and listened to Jerrie Kay regarding her father...a myriad jumble of emotions depending on what he was up to at that time.
However, on one of those holidays that involve the baking of dead fowl and the necessary slaughter of innocent cranberries and pumpkins, I had the opportunity of meeting 'the ole man'. I found Lloyd to be an intelligent, forthright, determined gentleman. He enjoyed a good debate, relished a conversation on any controversial subject, and really loved a good meal!!! I truly enjoyed meeting, greeting, and dining with him.
In the present, I know that you all miss him, but know that others also cared for that truly remarkable 'ole man'.
On another note, I know that he is with your Mom, the place he always wanted to be...back with the love of his life. Remember to celebrate his joy at being with her!
