    My condolences to Tracy and the entire family. I didn’t really know how much Kavion liked teddy bears when I gave him a Norcom bear when he graduated. I am so glad now that I did that for the twins. My prayer is that you will find comfort and strength through your sweet memories you shared with Kavion. RIP, Kavion
