    We were so very saddened to see this. We recall worshiping with the Gill family at Sunset Park Church of God in Wyoming when the Kellys’ were pastors there. Tom was always a great softball player and he’s visit church in his uniform before a game on some days. We will be praying for you all during this time of loss. It would be good to see your family again after such a long time. We are pastoring at the Orchard View Church of God, 2777 Leffingwell NE. ( Our thoughts are with you.
