    I love you Kelin and I will forever miss that smile and that one of a kind laugh. You left us way too soon and I still cannot fully process that you won’t come hang out or go out to eat at BD’s….that was one of our favorites! I am so glad I saw you just days before and got one of your incredible hugs and that I got to tell you that you are the son I never had and that I loved you very much. Fly high and keep an eye out for your family and friends.

    My thoughts and prayers are with everyone. I wish that I could be there to support all of you in person.

    I love this picture of Kelin. Although Kelin could be a challenge in class, when he was a young boy, he was always fun. He always had so much to say, talk about and question! He was always happy. And good at making others smile. He had the most beautiful eyes! My deepest sympathy to Candia, Janell and his family.
