Got a -- actually got a great team here afternoons on the WB yep and I hope it just to listen to sandy beach this morning at nine GNU and is again this -- just hit it. The other park. Talking about Ralph Wilson the future of the bills and -- and it I think we both. Feel the same way for the most part about pro sports entertainment. -- go to a movie it's entertainment it's fun. We enjoyed it. But I don't think sandy bases his life on other people playing games any more than it. I'd look at going to a sporting event in much the same way as I look at going to the casino were going to a movie as entertainment. Now that being set. There are certain transcendent figures become law. The French connection. For hockey fans show me daddy dear Pat LaFontaine. Mean the way I could keep going but what's the point with the Buffalo Bills the golden era of Betsy. And I always leave people out. But at number one would be Jim Kelly the -- franchise quarterback. And Jim Kelly right now folks is. He's about what. You mean there's just there's no sugar coating -- and I'm basing everything that I am saying. On what I'm receiving from the Kelly family. And what everybody can receive from the Kelly family and Jill Kelly who is Jim's wife. I don't even have the words. To properly describe the kind of class. Joseph Kelly -- I just mentioned here folks because we've all been in situations. We're we have been -- with loved ones at very difficult moments. In hell. Sometimes those moments of the final moments sometimes they've been a continuing. Chronic situation. But we've all been there. And Joseph Kelly. I don't know well I do know where she finds this -- she finds it affects. But. There's an old expression. Burial. Which. Joshua Lawrence Chamberlain as a union civil war figure. He used it in describing. These surrender at apple medics. Of the confederate army army of Northern Virginia. And as the surrendering confederate it's marched past the victorious federal soldiers. The federal soldiers. Saluted. Their fellow country. Again. After reunite after their surrender. And the emotion at that moment. Was so palpable. And the confederate commander. Gave the proper salute back along with his men. To their former followers and his Joshua Lawrence Chamberlain wrote honor answers honor. And in this case we have joked Kelly. Jim's wife. Who along with the Kelly family has been on the receiving end of so much love and so many prayers. In this latest health issue. For Jim Kelly. And she has responded to all that lot. And all that energy by choosing of her own volition. To keep us all in the -- Because she knows. That in addition to being her beloved husband. Jim Kelly is also a beloved public figure here in Western New York. You know those of us of a certain age Jim Kelly is 54. I'm fifty. Those of us have a certain age you don't we remember. That Jim Kelly wanna come to buffalo I referenced the Rick -- are commentary. Very early in the nation now. And there was a game -- Jim wasn't very good. Early in his career as a Buffalo Bill did have the right support system. Walks out to his donated during his his gift of a Corvette at some more on it keep -- cork -- You know Jim Kelly the young party animal. Of the stories of -- young guy. I'm still waiting to grow up but Jim. You know Jim transformed. When I'm trying to say before his health crises. Jim Kelly went from BN party animal I loved it drank and drank and drank he went from bad to being. A man of extra were not known extremists that are good work a man -- very very deep and solid state. And a man with a loving family. And a man who just. Transformed. It you know what it's like all of the bad parts of his character or immature part of his character fellow way. And the Jim Kelly of the past ten or fifteen years or so. Has been a guy who has been a real. Genuine true role model. I don't like that expression role models. But I think that you'll find a better one. To define and describe Jim Kelly -- between words. In his life for matured in his life. And I'm hoping continues to do so for many many years to -- But for Jill Kelly in the midst of everything through which -- is going. You know watching GM go through what he's going through. Having a daughter -- -- dealing with the doctors the nurses the decisions that have to be made it. For her to care so much about people she doesn't even know personally. Know people like -- and the outside world. For her to keep us in the loop almost SE big family. I have to -- -- supplement. I am. I am deeply touched. At herb strength. And her class. And the fact that. The Kelly family. Is. Responding. To all of that luck and all of those prayers and all of those messages. It's not just a one way story. -- pray for Jim. You know Jill is including all of us in Paris and obviously Jim is is down what that group. And I don't even know. How to. It's the the emotion. Forgive me sometimes they get very emotional. When it comes to talk about other people. And end the bad things -- which they're going. To one of my weaknesses. I hate this is. Just one of the finest moments. That I -- -- call involving a public figure. There is a prayers for Jim Kelley -- picked -- page. I put a link up on my FaceBook page. And basically. I'm I'm letting the Kelly family. Set the -- And share information. As it sees fit. Because otherwise. His health is his business. And his health is -- business. And I respect that. But I am deeply. Impressed. By Joseph Kelly's class. In including us as a giant extended family. That just speaks volumes. About Jill. And also about the transformation. Jim Kelly is experienced over the past decade or so it's it's really quite remarkable. And I would point out that this transformation happened before his -- leaders. So anyway I just wanted to take a moment to just. Talk about Jill -- And the incredible story. And the fact that love answers love. In situations like -- I'd I just I don't know if you don't understand I'm I'm sure you can't. Because we've all been in similar situations. You know some families just go into a shell even with their family members -- just go into a shell. And it's their right to do by the way. And -- -- Kelly is sharing her husband. -- us and sharing her life -- us because not because she wants the attention. It's not about that. It's because she knows that Jim Kelly is a beloved men by people he's never met. But by people whose lives he has touched. As a grown up and as a guy who came here. Basically. KB ear yelling and screaming and now we yell and scream to get a lot of year. And that is just class folks. Pure unadulterated. Class. By -- calorie and the entire Kelley family. And in my thoughts and prayers with the Kelly family as well as. All of going through cancer or some other major health issue right now I want your stories. I am honored and humbled that you share your stories with me never ever picked -- for granted.

It's just not in a place surgeons can get it so he's coming back the buffalo chemo and radiation. Are the options now available to Jim -- But he's also got an army of prayer warriors. Never underestimate the power of prayers and positive thinking and good vibes if you want to be new AG about it and people get upset when I say good vibes I.

And five months and one week later he'd have to -- -- and many different things that people are talking about that. I could comment on. You were talking a lot about -- and we hit the web site called caring bridge to journal what was happening while it was happening. And both he and I were able to update a pretty large community of people -- group -- across the country. And we ended up making that into a book so that came out last march and we didn't have any physical miracle but I think -- -- there were a lot miracles that happen for us. Now as far as the battles through which are your husband went and the many ups and downs I know that sometimes you go through so much everything becomes kind of like off fogged what do you remember about all of those rollercoaster -- arts. We absolutely called it roller coaster ride all the time. Especially with hit because. Thankfully it was an eighty's super painful kind of cancer and the first nine weeks that is true and all of the indications that -- showed that it was going very well. And then we found out after it kept and that it was not going well at all and -- and for example in August of that year. We got news about a Friday that the cancer had spread. By Monday he was hospitalized they told that he would either real player have to wait for hours last. And by that Friday. He was back -- work full time. Well. The kind of roller coaster we've -- on. Well how're how're you doing how are you doing now you you've lost your husband to this disease. And where what how I was like dealt with you since then. Well like it that it actually hit it you know the entire diagnosis and illness really transformed. And it it. Was that -- month of our lives even -- what was the hardest.
