Richard Kelly, August 26, 1945 - August 10, 2018
Father, Scholar, Teacher.
Richard Kelly's brilliant mathematical mind was matched only by his adoration of beauty in all forms: nature, literature and art. Richard's daughter Meg recalled his love of his carefully tended gardens and Shakespearean masterpieces.
To remember Richard, Goodnight Violet used the most stunning of locally sourced dahlias in honor of those he grew at home. Fresh cuts from Park Hill neighborhood gardens: scented geranium, mint, sage, cotinus smokebush provided gardeny fragrance. Light blue tweedia and sea holy eryngium reflected Richard's life long ties to the beaches of Ocean Grove, New Jersey. Other blooms and botanicals added to create a stunning palette worthy of celebrating this inspiring intellectual, and true renaissance man.
