I did know Kevin my dad worked along side as many of my family members did for many years at Richland . He was a good man and I hope his memory never fades . I was also friends with Chris in school and growing up. I will not be donating to paws I will be donating to him and his family to help with the expense of him being laid to rest. He was a good man.
