There are no words that can say the pain that is felt,
To loose such a wonderful person, but this was the hand that God has dealt.
Memories are there and memories will be made,
Just know Grandpa that you will always be in our hearts and this will never fade.
39 years I have walked this earth and you were always there,
You've touched my life and my families with all your love and care.
I remember every birthday where you'd say "All together Now",
Who could fill your shoes or words, no one no how.
There is never enough words or space id could tell you how I feel,
Just know the pain we all feel will eventually heal.
For all you taught and shared your wisdom,
We miss you and love and we'll be together one day in God's Kingdom,

Grandpa Kelley was great man. He did a lot for the family no matter what it was. Grandpa Kelley was a loving and caring guy. He loved to tell jokes and hold conversations with anyone about any topic. Wherever he was not long behind was his dog Hercules. Grandpa Kelley was a great husband, father, grandfather and great grandfather. He will be missed and loved a lot. You are gone but not forgotten. We love you and miss you a lot.

Love Chris Alyson Christopher and Alexander

Richard was a wonderful fatherinlaw to me,when I was ill he was the first to offer me a ride for my appointments.He was the type who can turn a conversation into a joke. I was amazed how he put his dog before himself his little Hercules meant the world to him.Everytime we sing a Happy Birthday I will think of him as he was the one who always lead the song by saying all together now.You will be missed and never forgotten may you R.I.P. until we meet in heaven thankyou for being a great fatherinlaw.

When I think of Richard Kelley, I think of his jokes, his organic bananas and most of all him carrying around his little dog, Hercules. I always enjoyed our conversations, whether we were at Al & Doreen's or one of his visits to my job in Troutman, we always had great conversations about family, cars or whatever was on our minds. He was a cool guy! You will be missed Grandpa Kelley!!!
