Our hearts are breaking for you Peggy and your family. My only regret is that we never got to know this wonderful man we heard so many nice things about. The fact that he made you so happy was everything to me. Because you were so long overdue that feeling. You've always been there for me Peggy. As I am for you & yours. Even if not in person, know we are thinking about you and your family. With sincere sympathy & love always....Fran & Bob Palmer

There are way too many memories to share within this message, but I'll share one that was ingrained in my mind since childhood. During the many pool parties at my parents home, I always waited for Kevin to do his "butt dive" into the pool. Seeing such professionalism and grace as he strutted to the end of the diving board, only to jump into his butt and dive into the pool. I thought it was (and still is) the coolest way to get into a pool.
