Jeff and Kelly and Family very recently visited NYC and I was privileged to show them tbe Big Apple as best I could. I did not know until the morning of the tour that this trip was a very special and a very important one for Kelly and the entire family. I was informed that this visit to NYC was a long-held wish for Kelly - her serious illness made it that much more imperative. Considering how sick Kelly was during her time in NYC, she managed to be almost heroic in her courage and stamina and her strong will to make the tour and her time as memorable as possible. We have a phrase in NY that describes what her husband and family (great people and Americans !) managed to unselfishly make happen : A Mitzvah For those who may not know what a Mitzvah is (yes it is a Jewish expression) - simply put, it means a good deed, but more deeply explained, it is a very special deed done completely in the total interest and for another individual completely unselfishly to make their lives immeasurably better without any need for reciprocity. That is what I witnessed during Thanksgiving weekend. Kelly's entire family focused on trying to make her happy and to try and give her a few days of pleasure and distraction after what must have been months and months of pain and darkness. I was very grateful to have been a small part of this Mitzvah and my heart goes out to Jeff and his family. Best Sheldon Best New York Tours

What an amazing woman. She always came to Madison Middle School with a smile on her face and a determination to give her best effort to do whatever was asked of her as a substitute teacher. Everyone wanted her to sub for them. Kelley will truly be missed by our staff. Sympathy to the family.

Kelly was an amazing person. Whenever she would sub for me, my room, all occupants, and activities completed were in perfect order. She ran a tight ship, and I appreciated it more than she could ever know. She talked me into golfing in he Monday night women’s league, and I am so glad she did. I got my own hole in one, and I think she was more excited about it than I was. It will be tough golfing on Monday nights without her. You will be so missed, Kelly. I am sorry to all her family and friends. God bless all of you.
