Kevin is my brother, we may not have had the same dads but that didn't matter, Kevin was my brother. I could talk about him forever but I'm not gonna do that. I will say though, he was the best brother, I could always count on him and visa/versa. This last year of his life I was able to visit with him several times. Which Can be a little hard sometimes when ya dont live in the same state, but I made it happen and I'm so glad I did. It gave me so much time with him that normally I wouldn't have had. He loved his family so much. I will miss you my brother! Love ya always kevin and I'll see ya on the other side one day!

Kevin you always fought the hardest fight one could possibly have to do.
Now is your time to be at peace with no more pain.
You were always so nice to me and brightened my day with your ear to ear smile. Even if you just yelled hello it always meant so much to me.
Enjoy the love that heaven has for you! You are certainly due that my friend.
