My thoughts & prayers go out to all the family of Mr. Robert Kiely. I had the privilege of meeting him. He was a good family man. I could tell from my friendship with Tom that he was a gentleman. His son has the same integrity his father had.

Dad, I feel so blessed to have had you as my Dad. You were always there for me, supporting ne and offering encouragenment when needed. I will dearly miss our lunches at Cracker Barrel, IHOP, and Waffle House. Or watching football games on the back deck. You always made me feel special and could make me laugh so easy. I will always love you and cherish the times we had together. You will always be my hero. All My Love, Kathy

Dad, I couldn't have asked for a better father. You were always there when I needed you. You lived your life with a level of integrity that all people should try to emulate. You're missed so much, but I know that you're in a better place. I'll always love you, never forget you, and thank you so much for all you've done for me and our family. - Tom

Bob, Tommy, Kathy - I'm so sorry to hear of Bob's passing. He and Marian were a joy and blessing to us in our years at Selective Service. We loved them both. I know you will miss him, but I'm sure he's rejoicing with Marian and is out of his earthly suffering. Our thoughts and prayers go out to all of you during this time.
