    Words cannot express what I am feeling now. I’m sure I can also speak for my siblings when I say he really was our brother from another mother. I’ve known Kevin just about all my life and my heart goes out to his children his siblings nieces nephews cousins and countless friends. Kevin was a silly lovable person and he will be sorely missed. If Kevin joked you it was indication that he loved you. He looked after the people he loved. What an upstanding and smart individual. Kevin you’re at peace now and we will all miss you…. love your honesty sister….Deborah Davis Cross

    All praise to God, the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ. God is our merciful Father and the source of all comfort. He comforts us in all our troubles so that we can comfort others. When they are troubled, we will be able to give them the same comfort God has given us.
    (2 Corinthians 1:3-4)

    Oftentimes death is not the end but rather the beginning of a new journey. I know Kevin’s spiritual journey is already planned. Family worry not about what Kevin left for you, focus on what he left in you! RIP my lifetime friend.
