Pray For The Kelso Family

April 03, 2009 By: Aaron Category: Prayer Requests, SG Artists, SG Industry News, SG Music, The Dove Brothers

From a Dove Brothers newsletter sent out today:

Official Press Release (Bladenboro, North Carolina)
Dove Brothers

Early this morning we received a call that our piano player, Jerry Kelso’s son was tragically killed in a motorcycle accident. Brandon Kelso, age 22 was riding on his motorcycle and a car pulled out in front of him. It was said that the road conditions were wet which may have lead to the accident. This happened in Kentucky where Brandon recently moved. He was born and raised in Asheville, North Carolina which is where the funeral services will be held.

Please keep Jerry and all of his family in your prayers at this time. The arrangements are pending at this time but we will update everyone as to what the funeral arrangements will be as soon as we hear.

You can send cards to:
Jerry Kelso
PO Box 763
Bladenboro, NC 28320

The Dove Brothers

I do not know what to say other than pray. I can hardly imagine losing a friend or brother so tragically and suddenly, and my heart goes out to Jerry and the rest of the Kelsos.
