Our family remembers Kelly today....the always happy and smiling boy that was 
taken from us too soon...... 11/14/85 - 9/8/91

Kelly...mama's nephew...lost his battle before we were born, but the family has told us so much  about him that we feel we knew him also.  
He was diagnosed with Leukemia a couple months before his 3rd birthday.  He fought valiantly with radiation and chemo treatments for nearly 3 years  before losing his all that time, he achieved remission once for a brief 6 week period.

We purray for a total cure for this terrible disease.

Sending many purrs and love to all,

SAS....Sammy Andy Shelly
and our mama Judi
