Just A Simple Man
- Aug 23, 2014
Thanks for coming here to share your memories.All, I found this forum, actually family, based on a post in Kelly's obituary. My name is John Ford and I went to high school with Kelly Shelton. We were in auto mechanics class together. I want to share with you our Eisenhower High School "Eagles to Angles" tribute page to our fallen class mates. In this case, class of 1987. Kelly Shelton. I have many memories to share but I have not talked to Kelly in 15, or so years. Having found this thread, I am very happy to so how loved @heltershelton was. It also makes me sad. For those of you that were wanting to reach out to his family, I am not in contact but there are those in that Eagles thread who are. Leonard Head, and Troy Roach Campain. Please feel free to reach out to them as I am sure they will not mind. I want to share a lot and I will, but for now I have this. Kelly was a wild Mother F*cker! He lived life just as he should have because he knew from a young age he was at risk. His first heart surgery was when he was in 5th grade. Everything he go into, he pushed himself to excel and be the best he could be at whatever it was he was into at the time. I really enjoyed reading everyone's tribute to @heltershelton. I wish I knew him as well as many of you did.
Unrelated, but not really, I began playing guitar again one year ago Spring Break. It just seemed like the thing to do at the time. I own two MIM Strats. One is a modified Noventa (Daphne Blue), the other an Albert Hammond Jr. signature Strat. Both are pretty nice instruments. I will join you as a member in this forum but the reason I joined was because of @heltershelton. It is a shame I can't share any of this with him.
Thank you @tubedude for posting on Kelly's memorial. That is how I found this place.
To be continued.
