Reba and family,  
    So very sorry for your loss. Have very fond memories of times with all of you at the farm when we were younger. You and Darrell were always such good friends to mom and dad. Praying God wraps His arms around all of you at this difficult time. Love to all,   Ann

I remember visiting with the Kelley family in my youth and Darrell was always very kind and funny.  My condolences to Reba and the entire Kelley family.  May he rest in peace.
