Tommy Kelly was my great grandmother's uncle. She moved over to San Francisco from Ireland at the age of 15 to stay with her uncle Tommy. Unfortunately Tommy was shot and she was not able to stay in the US any more as she did not have a guardian. She returned to Ireland and married my great grandad. It's unusual because a tragic murder like this resulted in my grandmother being born in Ireland and raising her family there. It's hard to believe that if this murder never happened, then I would not be around today.

Rest in peace to Thomas Kelly, and all those who have lost their lives in the line of duty.
