A Note From Your Editor


Hey, Everyone!

It’s 4 am here in St. Louis, and I’m supposed to be up in a little over an hour to start my day.  But since I’ve been awake since 2:30, I’m guessing it’s a moot point by now.  🙂

It seems natural that in the quiet of the night, I turn to Il Volo–and in turn, you–to occupy my mind instead of concentrating on the ticking of the clock.  If I’m not going to sleep, I can at least be relaxed.

Plus, it’s the one time of day I’m not thinking of the next thing I have to do before the day is over.

Provided my kitty will allow it.  She hates when I’m using electronics and not paying attention to her.    😉

But I’m way off of my point.  I’m writing tonight to say, “Thank you.”

Thank you all for loving and supporting us in this venture called the Flight Crew.  Thank you all for loving and supporting each other everyday.  Il Volo has made us family, and all of you have made this site what it is as much as anyone that formally writes and contributes.

Thank you for all of your kind words on my pieces when I post.  Thank you for the warm “welcome back” and condolences over the losses of my aunt and uncle.  I want you to know that while I couldn’t always respond to your comments, I saw them all.  I always do.  And I appreciate them from the bottom of my heart.

Thank you, Myron, Jeannette, Danielle, Jana, Kitty, LeeLee, Ann, LiJoy, Elizabeth, and Julie for adding your touch to the site.  I love what you have brought to us and the help you give unreservedly.

And, Thank You, Marie! Between the two of us, you’ve done the lion’s share lately, and I can’t tell you how much I appreciate that.

Linda, Michelle and Elaine, I know you have so much going on that you guys can’t be here as much as you like, but we miss you.  🙂  Hurry back, Ok?

Well, I’m finally starting to get sleepy.  Have an awesome day, and again, THANK YOU!

~~ Kelly

    Thanks to all the ladies that work so hard to keep us informed and entertained.
    “Solo tu mi capisci! (Only you understand me) -from my list of “learning Italian”

  2. Thank You, Kelly. What a warm and wonderful note. I am happily retired. I wish you had the time to play on this site with these lovely people like I do. It is the most rewarding fun I’ve ever had! I feel we can all express ourselves here, without reserve, because of the unconditional love we are surrounded by in this “family”. Another reason to thank Gianluca, Piero and Ignazio. We are here because of you!

    I’d like to jump in with Kelly and add my sincerest Thank You to all of you who have viewed this site from 151 Countries, 613,000 times in 20 months.

    1. My thanks, as well. Every time I come to this site I join with you all in the love that is Il Volo and the Flight Crew. Tears frequently, laughter frequently. And where else can I go to see and express my own feelings for this phenomenon of Piero, Gianluca and Ignazio? The writing here is superb! Prose, poetry, silliness. I love you all! Thanks you!

  3. Amazing site…amazing people! Thank you for all your dedicated work here (labor of love) that brings IL VOLO’s joy and love to all. The site and people here are true gems in my world!

  4. Thank you Kelly for all your contributions to this site although I know you have another full time job helping people. It was nice seeing you twice in Chicago for the concerts Hope we can do it again this year. Please bring Marie. lol

  5. Kelly, your post, as usual, is beautiful! I love this site! I feel as though everyone is part of my family because of our love of Il Volo. It’s amazing how these three young men have changed us for the better! WE ARE LOVE because of Il Volo!

  6. I start my day always with the flight crew. It,s a warm and fuzzy way to face what lies ahead in the day. Like Kelly, I am a nurse by profession now retired and was always involved with people. Now I am alone and look forward to reading this site . Thanks to all of you who contribute . Joanie g

  7. Whomever thought up”Flight Crew” is a genius! If there are two or more, they are “geniii” !! I look forward to this site each day…and especially the coments!! I’ve always thought my best feature is my sense of humor…now I know many who have this same trait! The articles are so entertaining…the coments are priceless! Where else could we express our feelings (about you know who) and not be considered a little bit weird?? Thanks again! Kelly , it’s good to have you back!….Dot in Texas!!

  8. Thank YOU, Kelly. Without my Il Volo family, I would have no one to share the love that I have for these fine young Italian men we know as Il Volo. Piero, Ignazio, and Gianluca came into my life in 2011 when I most needed someone or something to bring back excitement, love, and something to look forward to every day. So a big THANK YOU to each and every one of you on the Flight Crew!

  9. You all do such wonderful work !!!! Thanks so much. Do you ever wonder what it would be like if you all worked together in the same office like a traditional office ??
    Bravo ! to you.

  10. I have to express my big Thank You to you, Kelly! Your wonderful contributions have meant so much to all of us. The Flight Crew founders have put together a unique safe place to express the deep affection we have for three amazing Italian ‘boys’. When I first heard these boys, I felt so uplifted and amazed by their demeanor and voices. When I would talk about them with such joy in my voice, I would also get from friends, and some family, the ‘eye roll’. However, this is the safe, happy place where we can share freely our experiences and love for Piero, Gianluca and Ignazio as if they were part of our own families. Il Volo Flight Crew is a family, and I am so glad to be part of it. Love, Harriett

  11. Thank you Kelly for such nice sentiments. I can’t tell how happy I am that I found The Flight Crew. You are all awesome! It’s so nice to have other people that share my “addiction” for Il Volo!

    1. Thank you Kelly for everything. When I can’t sleep (which is just about every night), I sit at my computer, turn on the CD and sing with Il Volo. They help me relax. Thank you again for everything you do.

  12. Lovely sharing, Kelly! (And love the quote.)

    Talk about dedication! You are very much appreciated, as is everyone on the team!

    Peaceful sleep,

  13. Thank you, Kelly. I am at my daughter’s & have gotten behind in my Flight Crew remarks. I love this site with all the wonderful posts that come straight from the heart!!! You keep us informed & keep us laughing! We can share our thoughts & our love for Gianluca, Ignazio, & Piero without any fear of negative reaction! We are a family & I am so happy to be a part of Flight Crew!!! WE ARE LOVE!!!
