    Needless to say this took me by total surprise. Kelly and I had talked on the phone so much for the past year, almost to a point of it being every day until the last three months or so. I wondered what had happened when he stopped calling all of a sudden and I couldn’t get any answers to my text messages. He gave me a lot of good memories as we traveled down memory lane as I lived in Colton, SD, when I was born and he was from Chester. Oh what conversations we had! Rest in peace Kelly. You will be missed dearly. My condolences and prayers to his entire family.
