Hey there Uncle Rodney, how are you? I been thinking about you and always wonder if you was here walking the Earth with your nephews, beautiful daughter and family how would life in the Kelley family be? Oh, KK is doing fine. We have to keep check on her every now and then since your not here! I wonder what you would say to see me and the guys playing the instruments at the skill level we are on now. Its a lot of things I wonder about sometimes. I'm glad you taught your nephews how to play and be a real musician. I know you in a better place because we already seen each other more then 2 or 3 times since you been gone from Earth. I know you are playing the keyboard like never before, until the Lord our God, Jesus. I have no more worries because WE both know where your at! All I can do is :) when I think about you. As you said Unc., we will see each other soon! Love you!!! <3 <3 <3
