A Remembrance from Kelly
One sunny summer day in 2008 Michael met Kelly at the coffee shop she worked at. She waited on him and little did they know that the next year they would both start a relationship like no other. One of his favorite stories to tell was how they met, they were together for 9 years. Kelly was they love of his life and his whole world.
The other love of his life was his Mom. He loved her unconditionally and was always there for her.
