Kevin was amazing, kind and full of life. I met him at one of the Chinese Week banquets a number of years ago. I"m so glad he and Jeannie, my hospice patient, were able to reconnect. My healing thoughts are with you.
Much love and a hug.

My dear Cassandra,

I will treasure your Mother's birthday at Peter Wong's when she and Kevin shared their sweet wit and that platter of flat noodles with us. My heart breaks for all of you. Know that Meg and I hold you close in our hearts, and pray for your comfort.
