    There is so many questions that will never be answered. But I know you are in a better place, no more fighting, no more wondering, you are at peace. I can not believe you left the kids, but you knew you were leaving them in good care. Kelly you were a good father that path never gave you a chance to get back to the person you use to be. I will always talk good about you and remind the kids of the good things you did. They have so many questions they will never forget but I will help them make it to the next day. I bought them each a journal and they write to you daily and they express there fears, their sadness. I hope that there will come a day were they will express their happiness. Kelly I can rest knowing that you will know longer have to hurt or suffer anymore. Rest in peace Kelly.
