Lynn, Velma, Bo, Carlisle and family: I am terribly sorry for your loss; it was a great one. The note of his “quick wit, gracious sense of humor and calm demeanor" could not be more accurate. Mr. Kellam will always be remembered as brilliant legal mind; he will live on with that legacy. He will live in my mind as a mentor and a sound leader; a great man with decorum and a kind heart. I cannot convey the respect that I will always hold for Mr. Kellam; a genuine person that exemplified the term “class act,” and lived a beautiful life with a beautiful family.
Lynn, So saddened to hear of Bill’s passing. You and your family are in my thoughts and prayers. May God comfort you and give you strength during this time.
Lynn, Bo and Carlisle, we are so very sorry for your loss. Bill was an amazing man who always took care of people around him. He never had a bad word for anyone or anything. I was lucky enough to work for him but also be his and Lynn's friend. Bill took me under his protective wing well over 22 years ago and always made sure I was okay. We will miss you my friend. Lynn, stay strong and always know that we are here for you. With all our love for all of you, Roy and Mary Ann Gilman.
I feel truly blessed to have known and worked for Mr. Kellam. He always had a smile on his face and a witty remark on his lips. My memories of him are all happy ones. He was well loved and admired by all of us at Kellam & Pettit. He will be dearly missed but never forgotten.
