Jimmy Kelly

"Jimmy Kelly" will be deeply missed here, leaving behind now only those fond memories we have of him. Prior to his imminent death, he requested that we do not grieve his death, but rather, celebrate his life. That sounds just like Jimmy, doesn’t it? Even in death, Jimmy still wishes to celebrate life! He always did enjoy life to the fullest, didn’t he? Jimmy's positive outlook on life was most admirable, even contagious some would say. He always had a smile for everyone and was highly regarded by everyone who ever had the opportunity to meet him.
