There are so many times that I find myself chuckling at one of our old jokes. As long as I'm still around, you'll be too. I think about you close to everyday, buddy. Rest well. I still remember your laugh and smile.

Oh Kevy - I have yet another shoeful of blood (not serious, just sock & shoe-stains). You were the only one who knew about my propensity to somehow end up with a shoe full of blood. After sharing my life with you for so long, I have to ask myself this question so many times every day: who do I share these mundane details with? No one gets it but you! I miss you so much darling. And not just the big stuff like getting married and all that. It's the little stuff I miss the most. Guess I'll just have to settle for writing to you on here. Love you forever. Trying to stay tough. ~LMV

Even though you're not here with me physically, I feel you with me all the time. Every moment of every day, I miss you. You were an extremely special snowflake. I'll never stop loving you and I promise to try and live the life you wanted for me.

To all of you wonderful friends of Kevin's, we love you and thank you for your memories and support. We lost him way too soon and he will forever be in our thoughts, hearts, and prayers. Thank you all for everything. I have tried to contact those of you who left a "contact me" link, however, Lizzie, your's wouldn't work for me. Please contact me at so I can thank you for the lovely flowers.

I miss you so much, Kevin. I will never forget you, or all the thoughts and feelings we shared. Wait for me where you are, eventually we'll meet again. Make sure you find Smee, and if not, we'll both find him later. I don't think he's very far. I love you, we are brothers. We'll never be apart.
