John and my Daddy, Ed Kelly of Chattanooga were great friends. He taught my daddy the best way to fish and also taught me too. We have wonderful memories of them and know they are in heaven now working on the right strategy to catch a big one. My wife and I visited with John and Mary last Christmas and knew he was ill but didn't expect this so soon. We just now found out about his death and wanted all of his family to know how much he touched our lives.Thanks John for making our lives richer. Ken and Kim Kelly, Signal Mtn. Tennessee

This was my grandfather and though we had some bad times as many families do we always bounced back even stronger than before. He was a great man and a good friend to my eldest daughter. She went everywhere with him and as a last gift to him she placed a bunch of silk roses in his casket and he will forever have a piece of her heart and symbol of her love with him. May he rest in peace.

I am sorry to hear about your loss. During this time of great sadness, I hope that the family find comfort from James 4:8. It says, "Draw close to God, and he will draw close to you." Along with family and friends, may you'll also look to God for comfort.
