    My most loving memory of Kevin is when I went daily to his house to safely buckle him in his car seat to take him and his cousin, both under age 12 months to the baby sitter’s house on my way to work.”God has a way of showing us love past our pain. I believe with all my heart and spirit that Kevin Michael Gumbs Mayo was swept up by God’s love and mercy.
