My deepest condolences to the Kelly family. I worked with Hank many years ago in Amsterdam, when I was a secretary in Dick Horigan's lawfirm. We had a lot of laughs. May your memories bring you comfort during this difficult time.

You are the best Uncle Hank! I will miss coming up to Saratoga to go to the track with you as well as spending every Christmas with you. Words can’t describe how grateful I am that you were able to see me walk down the aisle a year ago. Rest In Peace.

I enjoyed working with Hank at Amsterdam High School! I loved his sense of humor and sarcasm! He always had a minute to chat and was interested in the loves of others. I was away and just got back and missed the services. I am so sorry for your loss!- Sue Stoya
