Because Lions quarterback Matthew Stafford famously doesn’t do social media, Detroit has gotten to know his wife, Kelly, better than most player spouses. Kelly Stafford is the visual mouthpiece of the family with her Instagram account that shows what it’s like away from the field for No. 9 and his family of girls.

Kelly Stafford shared a touching, honest farewell to Detroit. Now that the wheels are in motion with the Lions set to trade her husband to another team, Stafford posted a picture of her and Matthew smiling outside of Ford Field with a grateful, heartfelt (that’s her only mode) caption for Detroit and Lions fans,

Thank you. This place, our home, the people… it’s hard to find the words to explain what this place means to me. Random tears come very often when I think about not being here. This place supported me during the toughest time of my life and during the happiest times and I want to thank y’all in the right way.
Whenever I figure out what the future holds, you’ll be hearing from me again with a thank you that hopefully shows how much gratitude and love I have for this place.. but until then we are going to enjoy our time left in Michigan to the fullest because there really is no other place like it. #detroitvseverybody #staffordstrong
