Condolences to all of the Kelly "kids" and their families and to dear Agnes. Myself and my family have been lucky enough to know the Kellys since we first became neighbors in 1960. Gary (always Mr. Kelly to me!) was a man of convictions and a devoted family man and someone who maintained his friendship with my parents through the rest of their lives. Even though my parents moved 3,000 miles away thirty years ago they all made sure to stay in touch and visit each other while they were still able. I'm glad I was able to accompany my mom for a visit to see Gary and Agnes in 2019. Rest well, Mr. Kelly.

Gary and Agnes two earthly souls who found each other in saving grace on the stairway to heaven. Faith , devotion and a calm presence who always had a quick quip and a smile. God bless

Dearest Agnes I just read Fr. Bill’s memo on the passing of Gary. I grieve for and with you and deeply regret that I will be out of the country for his funeral. But I am with you in spirit, for sure. Gary was a lion for justice. I will never forget his roar which the world so needed and benefitted from so profoundly. I still recall one of the first meetings I ran when I started at Catholic Charities. I was telling the group how we need to make Catholic Social Teaching palatable for the people in the pews. Gary warned me not to “ dumb down” our justice teachings. I carry his message with me to this day. I so revere my memories of him and you in the work I do and we did together. Rest in peace Gary Kelly, Lion of Justice. You fought the good fight, you ran the race. What you did for the least of His brothers and sisters, you did for Him. Love Dick
