I spent many a summer in Kingsville at 429 W. Kennedy.......grew up with Uncle Bunny, Aunt Beverly, Doc, Tim, and Bubba. Lots of good times, fun and a little trouble......I remember Aunt Beverly's beautiful red hair, shirt waist dresses, the gorgeous quilts on the beds and her working at the base. Oh the packs of Kool Aid!!! She took me to the base to get my first ear piercings. She taught me the recipe of beans and hamburger with cornbread on top. My husband loved it for many years. Aunt Beverly always called me Baby the birthday cards, Christmas, Easter cards...especially when my husband passed awhile back. She wrote: "Chin up Baby Girl, you've got this. It's going to be okay." And here I am, it's Aunt Beverly: Chin up, it's okay now...You go rest in peace in the arms of angels. May God bless and keep you. I know Uncle Bunny was waiting at those gates when you got there. I Love You still...Thank you for the memories. I know I will see you again.......Baby Girl/Nancy

Russell Kelley was my father. Brother of Aunt Beverley. Her and uncle Howard were so encouraging to me when I went to college at kingsville from 75-79. They both were the most loving people and family I have ever known. Sure do miss getting cards from aunt Beverly !
