Mr. & Mrs. Elvin, Kristin, Stacy, and Kevin's wonderful nieces and nephew,
My mom just called me to tell me of Kevin's passing. I was shocked beyond words. I'm so, so grateful that I had the opportunity to see Kevin and all of you so recently. It seems to me that Kevin's last days were very happy days spent with his family; I'm so glad I got to be just a tiny part of that. I feel like it was God's little gift to me that I got to see Kevin just when I did. My prayers are for comfort and peace for you.
My love to you all,
Janet (Codiroli) Toner

I just found out about Kevin. I am so sorry for your lost. If I had known I would have been there for you and your family. Heaven has welcomed a beautiful person. My love and sympathy to all of you. May you find peace in your hearts and may the memories of Kevin shines through from all of us who had the privilege of knowing Kevin. Xxoo
We are feeling so sad for you. We know that Kevin was deeply loved and cherished by all of you. There is no doubt that his life will be woven together with yours forever.
I am so sorry to hear about Kevin. I have such fond memories of him and his kind, gentle, friendly ways. I am thinking and praying for all of you.
I am so sorry for your loss. You are all in my thoughts and prayers!
The death of a child is beyond understanding and seems not to be of the natural order of things. Although I did not know Kevin, his father was an important part of my life as I was a member of the marching and concert bands under his direction from 1974-1977 at Indian Hills High School in Oakland, NJ. I am forever grateful to him for sharing his love of music, and hope that he and his family can find some peace and comfort in its healing power.
May God hold your family in his arms as you grieve the loss Kevin. XOXOX
Love, Linda Tria
To Keith and Sue, Kristen, Stacey,
My sincerest condolences to you. May your memories of Kevin help to ease your grief. I fondly remember days at Indian Hills when a young Kevin would be with his band friends and lighting up your office with his grin. God bless you all as you go through this difficult time.

Kevin was the type of person that I aspire to be, he woke up every morning with a smile on his face and love in his heart. To Kevin, everyone was the same, he knew of no evils in the world. Kevin cared about everyone he knew and left an impression with everyone he met! He could make me smile no matter how depressed I felt, he could make me laugh when I wanted to do nothing but cry. With out knowing, Kevin taught me many things, like how routines are important, having fun is a must, looking great, even if you're not leaving the house, can make you feel good, and dancing is the best way to spend an afternoon. I will never forget these things, and I will never forget Kevin! The last words he spoke to me were " I'm going to miss you so much" but it is I that will miss him for the remainder of my life. Rest in peace my dear friend, I will see you again someday

May all the wonderful memories you have of Kevin help to comfort you in your time of sorrow. Our prayers and deepest sympathy.
I am completely heartbroken to hear of the passing of Kevin. In the 4 years I have cared for Kevin, it has been an absolute privilege to have been witness to the love his family had for him as well as to be in the presence of one of the kindest, gentlest souls I think I ever have and ever will meet. Kevin's joy in the simplest things in life was infectious, and I always felt a renewed sense of the beauty of life after being with him. I and all his caregivers will miss him terribly. He was truly a unique and very special person. My heart goes out to his family in this most difficult of times.
Kristen and family,
Sorry to hear about the passing of Kevin. Thinking of you and the family at this time. Dianne Koehler (Kuzminski). Karen Koehler's mother.
I always remembered Kevin as such a kind, gentle soul. When I saw him in the halls at the high school he brightened my day with that smile. He will always be fondly remembered. Our prayers and love go out to all family members.
