I first met Kerry when my son, Mark, offered him a ride home from Trist Middle School. He became one of Mark's best friends, and he often did things with Mark like fishing and hunting. The boys liked to hang out at our house. Kerry even evacuated with our family to Texas during Hurricane Katrina. He was kind, polite and also a great helper. Even though we lost contact for many years, he did not forget us. Just a few months ago, he showed up at Mark's house to say hello. I will miss Kerry, and I feel sad that he passed away at such a young age.

God says in John 11: 25-26 "I am the resurrection and the life: whoever believes in me, even if he dies, will live, and everyone who lives and believes in me will never die."

My sweet kindhearted loving older brother. You were my best friend growing up. You kept me safe through every hardship we ever went through. I would not have been the strong person that I grew up to be without you. You were there for me most and I will never forget the unconditional love that I felt for you. I am so sorry that you could not get past the hurt we experienced. I am so sorry that you felt the pain that you did. I will love you forever. I will never forget you and the amazing past that we had together. You were the best big brother anyone could ask for. I wish things were different but nothing can be changed now. I will see you again. Please be my angel who watches over my family and I. Love you more then you will ever know. You don’t have to suffer anymore and you can be at peace. Rest In Peace my sweet angel... until we see each other again.
