Kevin was/is my dear friend and favorite person on this Earth. Through thick and thin he never turned his back on me, despite me giving him the opportunity to. Words cannot fully express what he means to me, and so many other people who loved him.

As long as I am alive, I will miss Kevin every day. I hope he visits me in my dreams often, as I will long to hear that laugh again.

Goodbye, my friend.

I was very saddened to hear of Kevin's passing. Such a genuinely nice person to many. I was known to him as "Buddy's Mom," and he always laughed and played along when I called him "Big Play-a." He was a good friend to my son, which I very much enjoyed, and to all of his many friends. Looking forward to seeing him in a better place!

Ann, I was so sorry to hear of the passing of your son Kevin. Loosing a loved one especially a child must be so very difficult. In the short time I have known you and heard tales of your family one thing is clear Kevin was well loved and enjoyed his life here on earth. Thoughts and prayers are with you and your family.

Kevin was the first grandchild of my parents, Ferd and Lucy Hauber. Mom and Dad were over the moon they had such a beautiful grandbaby to love and cherish. And I had my first nephew who introduced me to babies before I had a baby of my own. One of my early memories of Kevin is as a toddler visiting Mom and Dad's home. Kevin walked in on his own, carefully negotiating the high step into the family den. Mom was ready for him! Mom kept a large wicker toy box filled with toy for Kevin's visits. Another memory I enjoy is a phone call I received from Mom about Kevin. Mom and Dad had kept Kevin for a few hours and as expected at some point he needed a diaper change. Mom said she forgot that when you change a boy's diaper it is best to cover him up while you put on the new diaper. Laughing, she said she got a bit wet also. Mom and Dad loved being grandparents. I also recall attending a performance of Kevin's choir at a Christmas show. He was so handsome and I was so proud of my then tall nephew .
Over the years, Tom and Ann shared stories of Katherine and Kevin's antics. Kevin grew into a fine caring man. He was always so polite. I will always treasure the memory of my last chance to visit with Kevin. Tom, Ann, Katherine, Kevin and myself sat at an outdoor table overlooking Galveston Bay. We chatted as we watched the boats and ate fresh seafood. A pleasant gulf breeze came in from the bay side. I was honored Kevin and Katherine came to visit their old Aunt Mary when I know both had other more fun things to do. I just wish we had enjoyed many more dinners like that before we lost our beloved Kevin. I know Kevin is with Ferd and Lucy again, swapping amusing family stories. Kevin was deeply loved.
