QUOTE OF THE DAY
Former Bills QB and Hall of Famer Jim Kelly
On this weekend’s Hunter’s Day of Hope event:
“(Hunter’s Day of Hope) is very special to our family. As you mentioned John, the birth of my son on my birthday, Valentine’s Day, and then of course he passed away at the age of eight years old. How tough that has been, not only on myself but on my wife and my kids. The overall blessing that we had when he was here. We just want families to understand how important their kids are. It is a great celebration of hope and just being with your children on that day.” – via The John Murphy Show 2/13/13
