Nancy and Family, Please accept out deepest sympathies during this time of loss. I just heard of Troy's passing yesterday and in turn learned of your great loss. Not 5 days ago, I was telling someone about Bethlehem Community Church, our visit with the Imperials at your house and coming for dinner to play Rook with Jim Bechtel and you and Kelly. Such fond memories that I will always cherish. Our thoughts and prayers are with you and your family during this difficult time.

Nancy and Family -- We were truly shocked to read of Kelly's passing. May God surround you all with His presence and guide you through this difficult time.
I didn't realize y'all were in College Station and if I would have known of Kelly's passing I would have driven up for his service. My parents send their love and prayers.

This may seem strange since I never met Kelly. I will try to b brief. I am with someone who knew him well. Over the past week I have been learning of him. Who he was. What he believed. How he lived his life. The way he treated others. I was moved to tears time and time again. I have no words here but if there ever was a hero, a true saint, a complete inspiration, it is this man. My life has changed. So thank you, his family, for sharing one of Gods true gifts with us. May you always stay strong and true.

Nancy, Amy & family, Angie & Family, Ian & family.
How much my heart grieves for you all at this time. Although we have not kept in touch over the years, my memories are fond of my times at the ranch for Thanksgiving, spending the night and sleeping on the trampoline, and our many four wheeler adventures. They are deep in my heart, and I will never forget the love that Kelly, Nancy and the kids always showed to me, Lisa, and Rob.
We love you all...miss you all...and please know that you are ALL in my thoughts and prayers as you rely on God to get you through this unimaginable time.
With Love

Dear Nancy and family; I am so very sorry to hear of Kelly's passing, but know without a doubt he is home in the presence of the Lord. May God bless all of you at this time of pain and sorrow, missing this good man. I admired and respected Kelly from the time I first met him in high school, and, of course, the many years that followed. He will be missed by so many who loved him and called him their friend. I am proud to call him my friend and to have known him.
