Last Wednesday night, I went to check on my father Paul Steven Kelley at his home. When I entered his home I was shocked and sadden to see that at the young age of 57 that he had passed away.
My sister Dominique and I were blessed to not only have an awesome father but a great grandfather and a true friend.
Words cannot express what dad meant in our world so I won’t even try.
Thankfully, we have such a great group of family and friends in our time of sorrow. Dad would have been proud of the support that they have helped comfort us. We had many friends that we hoped would be there and they didn’t disappoint, we also had many that we didn’t know cared as much for Dad and us and I hope that they know how much that truly meant to us.
God Bless each and everyone of you.
I always joked that wrestling was the first love of my life when in actuality there is nothing more important that family.
I cried for 5 days that my father will never get to see the little things in my life like the fun I had in the video of myself representing ECW Press on ST Louis TV for Larry Matysik’s book and the after math that ensued or that he didn’t get to see the big moments to come when my son Josh will have his first child.
Yet, I am thankful for the 37 years that he was a part of our lives.
Dad was a fun loving, good hearted guy who would give you his last dollar. He may of not been perfect but he was perfect for us.
For my friends in the world of wrestling if I have not taken your phone call, respond to your e-mail or work on a post for your upcoming show, I know that you understand that the pain in my heart has been very heavy. With over 1,700 post over 4 years here at MWR supporting many others that I care, this one is for my family.
I hope to have some desire to be back at MWR by the end of the week .
Till then take care of yourself, your family and love one another.
