To The Editor:

I want to respond to the article against Larry Kelley.

These kids need to grow up, get a life and forgive.

They are lying about things. Larry is not a mean man. I’ve known him for 50 years.

Those kids claim they are afraid of him. Then why did they stay with him in his home after Brenda left? If they were afraid, why didn’t they go when she did? They are liars, they stole everything out of the house down to his underwear when he went to jail. He helped those kids with cars (and) supported them. He is a hard worker.

They will never have peace until they go to God and forgive ... (they) have to forgive. Larry is very remorseful about what happened. He has done very well locked up, never a write-up. I visit with him from time to time. He has my support.

I feel that 28 years is a lifetime. He needs to be free. Hanging on to your anger will make you sick.
