I grew up with the "Kellett boys," and their parents were like second parents to me. While we stayed out of most mischief, we nevertheless had many great times playing ball, and I got to learn some card games from them. It was a great time for me to be with any or all of the Kellett's. All of the boys became successful physicians. Bill epitomized what it means to be a caring and giving person. His charitable accomplishments both before and after retirement are quite unbelievable. I am glad and honored to have know him.Bill Schulze

Lydia my heart is broken hearing of Dr. Bills passing. I've never known anyone (male or female) more compassionate than Dr. BIll. He was a patient at many offices I've worked at through the years. He loved God, his family and helping others. The many times he's made me laugh. He will truly be missed. My thoughts and prayers are with you and your family. Brenda Olive (Glymph's)

Dr. Kelley was a friend as well as mentor during my years as a Labor and Delivery nurse as well as an RN working in the Piedmont OB/GYN office. He inspired and encouraged me to become a Women's Health Nurse Practitioner and to serve the less fortunate. He will be missed but will always be in my heart. My deepest sympathies to his wonderful family. Lee Acres, NP

Mrs. Kellett and family,When we at American Security became the Security Team for Poinsett Plaza, one of the first people to greet us were you and your husband. You consistently treated us with kindness and joyfulness. We loved the fact that Bill and you went each and every week to work in the food kitchen to supply a meal for those in less fortunate circumstances. You, also, were very generous to us during the Christmas season supplying cookies for the officers on duty.We send to you our remembrances of Dr. Kellett and our most heartfelt condolences. May our God comfort you and minister to you during this season of grief. With my love and deepest respects,John B. PattersonDirector of Site Securityand the Poinsett Plaza Security Team

Bill was an huge part of my life at Greenville Sr. High School. He always had a smile and a kind word. I am so happy that he became so important to so many in South Carolina but also world wide. I truly cherish the many classes we had together, the laughter we shared, and the friendship. He was a terrific Young man, and even tho I have not lived in Greenville for many years, he was the young man who you knew would become a great man! Love and sympathy to his family.
