My husband Dale and I were lucky to have Kelly and Cliff for neighbors when we lived in FtWayne a few years ago. Cliff always said hello and he and Kelly were great people. Dale envied Cliffs garage and often said that’s how he wanted ours to be :)We are so sorry that they left this world at almost the same time. But perhaps that was Gods plan. Ocassionly Kelly would ask me to check on the dog and I was happy to help. We want their family to know we felt so happy to spend those few short years as neighbors.

Aunt Kelly and Uncle Cliff,

The thought of you two bring wonderful memories, and you both would always light up the place around you with your love and laughter. Some things are very hard to put into words. My sweet aunt and uncle are gone. I loved these 2 dear people that I'm proud to have had in my family. Aunts and Uncles hold a special place in the hearts of their nieces and nephews. You both will never be forgotten. I love you both so so much
