I am sorry to hear of your loss. My prayer for the family and friends is for God's comfort to be with you all and that you all remain supported by the love that is being shown by others. May your hearts become anchored in the hope of God's words, that death is temporary and soon your loved one will stand again, (Job 14:14,15 & Acts 24:15).

My heart is broken, Loved my sweet nephew and will miss him so very much. He always made me feel good and like his Dad, he would give the best hugs and the biggest smile. My thoughts and prayers are with my wonderful loving family and I know that one day we will have a Lawrence Reed Reunion in heaven and Bo will be at the Grill with me discussing the finer points of grilling ribs and steaks. Karolyn, Randy, Marilynn and my loving wonderful family, so deeply saddened by our loss. I can say without any hesitation that Kelson loved us all and we all loved him dearly. Love, Aunt Jo.

One of the fondest memories I have of Kelson is of him running over the snow (ice) man in our front yard. He, my son Robbie, and Dave Sharpe had made a life size snowman in the front yard. He was over a couple of days later and all the snow had melted leaving just the lone snowman. Being the prankster that he was, he was going to mow it down with his car not realizing it was no longer a snowman, but an iceman. The iceman won and he ended up with a dent in his father's car.

Kelson was like part of our family in his teenage years and my heart breaks for his family.
