Our love to the family. Kevin was the Best!
I will be in touch. You are in my prayers.
Kevin will be greatly missed. He was such a joy.
Your family will be in our prayers.
I express my condolences to the family for your loss. Please know that this is not God’s plan. It hurts him to see us suffer because of the loss of a loved one. That’s why Rev.21:3,4, he promises to wipe out tears, death and pain forever. That will certainly be a wonderful time. I pray that you continue to find comfort in him and his word the bible for strength to endure this sad time.
Pam and family, I was saddened to hear of Kevin’s passing but know that he battled the cancer for a few years. He is now at peace and no longer in pain. Although you will miss him, may you be comforted by the wonderful memories that you have and one day you will be re-united. God bless you and your family and you will remain in my prayers. Please let me know if there is anything I can do.
Pam and family, I am so sorry for your loss. Kevin was a very caring and energized person. He visited my John many times when John went into Neuvant House. May you find comfort in knowing that he is with our Lord free from pain and in peace. Susie Lounsbury

My condolences to everyone in Kevin’s family and circle of friends. I have not talked with Kevin for years but have spent many school years with him especially in band. I always have thought very highly of Kevin and remember him well. May God give you peace which passes understanding and assurances Kevin too is in His peace and grace. God be with you all.

Our thoughts and prayers to you, Pam, and the family. Kevin will be sorely missed by all who knew and loved him. Love, Sue & Rick
Crap. Kevin was one of the kindest, nicest, and most caring person I have ever known. I’ll always remember playing golf with Kevin during our NAPM meetings. I played with him as often as I could because he was so much fun to be around, and Always a Gentleman, on and off the golf course. I’ll always remember his laugh and his real, sincere, and caring smile.
And Pam, I can only offer my deepest sympathy for your personal loss.
Kevin would light up every room he entered. His ability to see the good in everyone, and everything made him a joy to be around. We feel blessed to have been able to call him our family and our friend. May the wonderful memories of him bring some comfort to all of Kevin’s loved ones.
Kevin was a wonderful Christian man. His personality always made you feel better. My thoughts and prayers are with the family. May God Bless his memory! Cousin Lynn
