Below is the obituary of Jack Kelly who passed away early on Tuesday
morning. I am sure that long time members of the NFB know the role Jack and
Martha have played in the NFB. While they are longtime members of the Kansas
Affiliate, They have always been supportive of the Missouri Affiliate and
the Kansas City Chapter. In fact, Jack and Martha were charter members of
the Kansas City Chapter. Living on the border, allowed some of us to see
them from time to time. They always made the effort to come to our chapter's
special events and it was interesting to hear Jack talk about our history..


Please keep Martha and the entire Kelly family in your prayers.
