Dear Holt, Johnnie, and Kat,
We are so sorry about Kelly. He was always such a kind person. I’ve known Kelly for over 30 years and I’ve never known Kelly to be anything but smiling and happy. That is the way I will remember him until I see him again. Jehovah will keep him safe in his memory until he wakes him up.
One happy memory I wanted to share was of a time my brother Ben and I, along with a couple
of friends went over to Kelly’s one evening. Kelly and my brother played guitar, and another friend played the drums. They jammed and we all had such a good time. This makes me smile.
Holt, I know you don’t really know me much at all, but I have been thinking about you so much these last few weeks. I hope your pain will lessen with time. It’s so hard to lose someone we love at any age, let alone at 12. I hope you feel comfortable with other families in the hall and find a brother in the hall that you can talk to as a father figure until your Dad Returns. Speaking as a parent myself, any parent would be happy to have you as part of their extended family. You will be loved!
Johnnie and Kat, I will continue to keep you all in my prayers.
