    Kevin had a way of finding what was needed and providing it for you. It’s a rare gift and he used it often. The hearts he touched were many and enriched by his actions and deeds. So many great memories from birth to now flood my mind and quiet my tears. May he now know peace and be free of his earthly pains.
