I thought it would be fitting to mark this passing by re-posting some of Grandpa's classic lines. He was quite a character, and he will be missed.
From the Sayings of Thomas A. Kelly, 1905 - 2006
~ There's nothing on this earth filthier than a house cat. Why back in the day, if you had a corpse in the house, a cat would eat the ears and nose right off it every time!
~ There have always been a lot of queers in this family. Yep, a lotta queers...
~ Will ya look at the head on that bugger!
And one last one that I heard nearly every time I saw Grandpa:
~ God bless ya, Jim. No wait, you're Sean, aren't you? Well, you're a good boy and I sure do love you.
