Dude, I'll miss you terribly. So many thoughts and memories come flooding back. Lounge Trivia, Golf road trips, concerts at the Wharf, Pink Floyd Pulse nights among many, many others. Rest easy my friend.

Kevin and I were best friends and neighbors from 6 years old until 18 when I got married and moved away.
We played baseball all summer long together, shoveled driveways in the winter together. I remember when our dads took us to see the Harlem Globe Trotters when we were 9 or 10, among many other events. He was my best friend and best man at my wedding.
What sad news this was to hear he is gone. Wish we had kept in touch better, he was a such an important part of my childhood.
