Mrs. Kelly volunteered in my classroom when Bubba was in first grade. She was a delight and how she loved those two great-grandsons! Whenever we happened to meet in the years that followed, she would always stop to visit and to let me know what Steven and Bubba were doing. She was an inspiration on how to be a caring grandmother and great-grandmother. It was a honor to have known her. You are all in my thoughts and prayers.
Sincerely, Kay Daley (retired Stevensville Elem. teacher)

I'll miss Minnie's delightful letters! She had an ability to describe what was happening with detail and humor and always showing her love of family. She and my mom were cousins and had kept in touch over the years and when we moved to MT, I was 'brought into the family'. Blessings to the family always.
