I first met Kelly when we were both doing yard work at our adjacent rental properties on Tryon Road. He was just the nicest guy. He had planted forsythias in the front yard and told me how they would bloom a beautiful bright yellow around Easter each year. They did of course and I always used to think of Kelly when they bloomed. Even more so now, I will always think of Kelly and his legacy.
