It was just another valued moment from which has been a terrific friendship.

“Hugh has been a father figure and a great role model to look up to, especially for my younger brother,” Ryan said. “He’s at that age where having a father figure is a good thing for him.”

Kelleher stresses the value the Big Friends Little Friends program has had on his life. It’s a worthwhile involvement that is beneficial to both mentor and child.

“I would encourage anybody to spend a few spare hours a week to get involved in the Big Friends Little Friends program,” he said. “They can use men and women – people in their 20s are ideal. They won’t regret it.”

Information on joining the program can be found on its website at FSMV.org.
