Who are those who revel in bringing guilt trips on masses of people? Jokes are recycled to me I heard long ago in high school. Some weren't that funny then. I boldly delete without fear. Have you heard the ones about the traveling salesman. Provided by Elmer London & Desert Messenger January 4, 2012 Town manager remembers Council Member Kelley I last saw Bob Kelley Christmas day. He was at La Paz County Regional Hospital. He was supposed to meet with his doctor on Monday. He said he was sorry to have let everyone down. He wanted to stick around and continue to stay on council. I told him he could attend meetings on the phone until he got out of the hospital. As librarian, I knew Bob well. He read two or three books a week and he read the Arizona Republic every day. He was quick to point out that much of what Quartzsite experienced was happening in other towns around the state. Bob was well-read, well-trav- elled and had a wealth of experience within the military and civilian life. Those who knew Bob knew he was ornery and said what was on his mind. He said he didn't lie because then he didn't have to remember what he lied about. He said it was just simpler to tell the truth from the beginning, whether anyone wants to hear it or not. He told me, as I was leaving that he "just wanted to fade away" – a refer- ence to General Douglas MacArthur's speech quoting an old barracks ballad line, "Old soldiers never die. They just fade away." On Christmas, despite his health issues, his voice was as strong as ever. His voice and his advice remain a powerful influence for what is good in this community.
