As the wife of Sid Kelly, I have had the pleasure of meeting this wonderful man and having a few conversations with him over the years. He truly loved and stood by his friends. If you were his friend, I know you consider yourself very fortunate. I also know as well that his wife, Kathy, considers herself fortunate to have had all these years and memories with him. He was likewise blessed to have her and he sure let you know it. He mentioned her in any and every conversation and his face would light up when speaking of her. Kathy, may your memories and all your special life moments give you great comfort during this time.
I’ve know Al for 50 years or more back when his mom lived in Winston. He was always so uplifting and if he counted you as a friend you were always a friend. My prayers are with Kathy and the family. Bud Fox
Johnathan thought a lot of Al and I know Al thought a lot of Jonathan. Both will be missed. Thoughts are with the family. With love. The Wards
I had the honor of being the Ride Captain for Al’s first Patriot Guard mission. He loved being in the Guard, and honoring America’s Heroes. He will be greatly missed.
