Traverse City Record-Eagle

— TRAVERSE CITY — There's a voice that makes Paul Hurlbert a better person.

It belongs to his wife, Kelly Ann Boyce, who changed his life the moment they met five years ago. She died July 5 when a hit-and-run driver struck and killed her as she pedaled her bicycle home, but he can still hear her. He could be angry, but it's her voice that tells him to remember to love.

"There's no way that my life will be as good as it would have been," Hurlbert said. "But because of how well I got to know her my life will definitely be much better than if I never met her. I'll always be grateful for that."
