    Although we are cousins -- I am the oldest daughter of John and Grace Macbeth -- my remembrances of Kelly are very few. But I can certainly appreciate the loss that is felt by those of the family who are left behind. Even with the hope of seeing our loved ones in the hereafter, the passing of one reminds us of our own mortality. May you find comfort in knowing that you are in the prayers and thoughts of those of us in the extended family. May peace be yours. Linda Macbeth Westover
