"I only met Kelly a couple times about 10 years ago but he was a very good guy with a huge heart. He actually helped push my van off the highway and helped get it running again it was very cold out and he was the only one to offer help he went above and beyond to help. It seems like our families were destined to be together. James Lucy sr performed my wedding ceremony in 2007 and our families have been joined with the amazing relationship with Larry and Ashley. He was a good man from a great family. My heart breaks for this wonderful family I'm So very sorry for your loss my thoughts and prayers are with you all. "
