"Words cannot express what you mean to us. We love you and didn't know you would live us so soon. We miss your jokes already (double, double), miss you at family gatherings, and its still surreal that you are gone. You had a beautiful soul, and loved everyone. You are a great example and a reflection of Gods love."

"Uncle Kel like i called him,was the most tenacious person i knew. Ferocious, focused, and fueled by a need to be his own man which he accomplished in countless ways until the very end. The simplest thing i can say about him is: He was a force of nature, a storm of a man. In his path, things moved. He was a generous soul indeed. RIP."
