  • David I have no words to describe the love that our family had for Kevin. Both Matthew and I, as well as, our boys loves Kevin like family. He brought so much joy when he would come to visit. My thoughts and prayers go to you and Debra and to Emily and Andrew. I can not get Emily out of my mind. I had very vivid dreams this night and I supposed God told me what happened even before we got your call yesterday, it will never leave me. If there is anything at all that we can do, please please please do NOT hesitate to call! I wish there is something I could do or say to ease the pain. May God wrap you in his arms and give you peace in your heart. Much love… Rachel, Pepper, Beau James and Brody

  • Dear Dave and Deb,

    There are no words to express my sorrow for your family at this time. Kevin was always a happy little boy full of energy and grand ideas.

    When the kids were together I dont believe I ever saw him without a Playstation controller in his hand or a gameboy! My life is enriched having had Kevin as part of our memories with our young families!

    My love goes to you and Andrew and Emily, I hope it makes this time for you a little easier to know that so much love is coming to you and your family at this sad time!

    Love Deb
