  1. My deepest sympathy to Kevin’s entire family. So very sorry for your loss.

  2. I am proud to have been a friend of Kevin’s since high school, through present. It is said that all things in this world are a gift from God. Kevin is no exception, but rather an example. He was someone you could have honest heart to heart talks with. Someone you could rely on when you needed a favor. Someone you could look to for words of encouragement. It warms my heart to remember the times we spent together. And, I can’t help but laugh when I remember some of the shenanigans we shared in. He will be greatly missed by many. May his family find peace during this trying time.

  3. Patty and family, I am so sorry to hear the loss of Kevin, especially so young. Please accept my sincere sympathy to the whole family.

  4. Dear Joan and Family,
    Please know you are in our thoughts at this difficult time.
