I remember Michael, or “Beans” as we called him in marching band, when he and his brother first came to LCA, as it was my first time too. He and I never really started to talk until later in the first marching year, even then I saw a loving and warm spirit within him. As time went by, I would find myself quoting funny movie lines with him during band practice or even just talking about life on marching band trips. His presence was very inviting, humbling, and caring. So sad to see a loving friend leave this world, my condolences and prayers go out to the family.

To Kevin: I love and miss you man! The Lord is always with you man, never forget that. Continue to look to Him for strength and comfort and He will provide it. I’ll be praying for you!
