I know that Kelly no longer has any suffering, worries, nor challenges. He now walks and lives in the home prepared for him by God. May all be filled with the love he had for you, keeping the good memories made and shared help you through this difficult time. Blessings from all of our family to you.

All my memories of Kelly, going back to Edgewood Elementary and Riverside Baptist Church, are how sweet and kind he always was. We had a hayride date one time at church. 7th grade. Awkward but fun with our church friends. The hayride lasted a long time going all around Ft Myers😊. Another memory that stands out is seeing him at 30th reunion. He looked so handsome and he was so enthusiastic. I was so sorry he lost his wife. I almost stopped to say Hi when I drove through
Palatka last year. Wish I had. My condolences to his big beautiful family and to Mary Ann who stayed by his side through the tough times. I’ll always remember him and his smile. Such an exceptional man. Sad he’s gone.

I will always be grateful for Kelly being such a great neighbor. He was always positive and upbeat. I know he will be missed by all who knew him. May our hearts grow in grace and love as family and friends go through this difficult time. Love from the Oddy's in North Carolina.
