“This is her favorite song,” Kelly said. Although the little girl was fast asleep at the wedding reception, Kelly gently scooped her up, headed to the dance floor, and proceeded to rock the little girl through the entire song, ensuring that she stayed fast asleep in her arms.
This is who Kelly is. Where most would have seen a losing situation (either wake the girl or have her miss dancing to her favorite song), Kelly saw a way to give this girl the best of both worlds.
Johannes and Kelly met at a jazz club while Johannes was visiting New York City from Germany. The two hit it off but didn’t think it could actually become anything, given the distance. However, they found themselves Skyping every night and visiting each other every few months for 5 years until Johannes moved to New York to be with Kelly.
You see, they both realized there wasn’t another Kelly or Johannes that was more conveniently located. This was the one. The only one.
Kelly and Johannes, I couldn’t be happier for you two. Kelly, you are the epitome of grace, kindness, and compassion, and you make everyone feel as though they are the most special person. Johannes, you are equally kind and so thoughtful and loving; your presence puts others at ease The two of you deserve each other, and that is a high compliment for both of you!
