  21. Michelle Richel says:

    To Mr. and Mrs. Kelly I had the privalage to have your son at my house a few times. I remember making him blush every time he was here. I used to tell him that he is going to break alot of hearts because he is smart tall and handsome. I am so grateful to have Nick be my sons friend (brother) for the last four years. If it wasnt for your son Domenic being the new kid from Jersey might have been a little harder for my son. Nick is the most amazing child I have ever met. God allowed Nick to be in certain poeples lives for a reason. I will never forgot the most amazing smile I have ever seen and I know my son Domenic will never forget him. Domenics older brother also liked Nick very much which is a miracle by itself. If you ever need a story to hear just give Domenic a call and he will be happy to tell you some. Domenic, Arty and Corwin will come to your house any time you need them to help you with ANYTHING. Our prayers are with you. Nick and all of you will always be in our hearts.

    Joyce and family, My sincere sympathy to each of you. Joyce, we just met a few weeks ago and the pride you expressed about your children impressed me so much. Your family, especially your children became the topic of conversation over and beyond all your business ventures. This loss of your son has to be overwhelming. My heart goes out to you and all your family and friends. If ever I may be of consolation to you please call on me. In the days to come may you find the healing touch of God a comfort. Sincerely, Linda Gingerich – The Shenandoah Valley-Herald

    It is so hard to have any words to say, as my heart breaks for you all for your loss. I wanted you all to know I am constantly praying for God to give you strength to endure. I pray that somehow, someway, He will sustain you. Nick was such a sweet young man, and my son, Nathaniel, loved him very much. He is grieving with you at the loss of his very good friend. Please let us know if there is ever anything we can do for you….but know we will continue to lift your family in our prayers. May God Bless and Strengthen you all.
