Kevin was like a brother to me, I will miss him more than words can ever express. We often went cruzin down Valley Parkway and I remember Kevin would always secure the front seat of my 56 Chevy by saying "I got shotgun!" Well Kevin my brother, you will always have that seat with me and I will never forget you! Sending my sincere condolences to Monica, Devin and all of Kevin's family. God bless and Rest In Peace Kevin.

Kevin was selfless, thoughtful, caring and always there for his friends and family. I am thankful he agreed to be the best man at our wedding and on his birthday to boot. Until we meet again Kevin. We love you!
