Reggie Kelly with the H. Family March 2nd, 2013

On Saturday, March 2nd, Reggie Kelly sampled his KYVAN™ salsa at Wal-Mart stores in Kentucky. During the event, he had the pleasure of meeting the H. Family and sharing his food, talking some football, and taking some pictures. Although the H. Family are not Bengals or Falcons fans, some messages transcend football, as evidenced by the kind letter recieved from Mr. H the following day…. Mr. Kelly,  I felt the need to send you a personal thank you. We have never met, but the example you have given to my family is a gift and pleasure to have received. Yesterday my wife, son and daughter had the opportunity to meet you at our (nearby) Walmart. Everyone was so excited to have the opportunity to meet and have pictures taken with you. My 11 year old son called immediately once he walked away from you to tell all about it.  Last night we were looking at your autograph and I asked him if he knew what/why you signed John 3:16 with your autograph. As expected his answer was I don’t know. So I sent him off to his room for his bible to broaden his mind. This opened up the opportunity for discussions on the bible. His true love of sports had drawn him to meet you and your way of getting God’s word out through your sports background made a impression and connection for him to both worlds.  Once we had discussed John 3:16 he asked if he could read the bible to me so he read the book of Genesis to me. We discussed what the words meant and as a father this was a moment in time that will never be forgotten.  From one father to another these moments are only fuel on the fire to be the best person and father for your children and to see the young mind grow is truly a God given blessing that most are too busy to see. I have challenged his competitive side to read the bible more so we all can grow stronger in our faith. I just felt the need to drop this note to you and truly thank you for this blessing you have helped bring to our family. Your message was definately hear and worked with today. Thank you for being you. On the lighter side we are life long Packers fans but this family has it ‘s one and only favorite Bengals player of all time. Sincerely The H. family
