Darlene and Jerry,
This is beyond all understanding, this is too sad, we are so, so sorry.
I saw the pictures, I felt him in my mind; I saw your happiness and pride in him. I saw him as I did in pre-school. It all came back to me in a flash. Such a wonderful child, such a wonderful son. I saw a loving, caring heart when I saw him again as a man.
Sincerely and deeply sorrowful,
Roger and Joselyn Williams

Dear Gerardo, Darlene, Stephanie, and Mary,
I am shocked and deeply saddened by the untimely death of your beloved son, brother, and husband - Kevin. May you be surrounded by God's love during this most difficult time, and take comfort in the knowledge that he will live eternally in the hearts of those whom he loved and served so honorably.

Kevin has touched so many. His spirit will live on. May God shine His light upon you. Our prayers and our love are with you now and always.

I was so sorry to hear about Kevin's passing. He was a good kid and a good friend from a great family, all of whom always laughed at my jokes and cartoons (even the ones that sucked). I was even prouder to know that he dedicated his life and career to serving the city that I call my hometown.
Dear Darlene and Geraldo, My deepest condolence on the loss of your son. May God help you thru these hard times and give you the strenght to carry on. You are in my thoughts and prayers. He will always be with you in your heart. Maria and Carlos Sanchez
We go back such a long way it is hard to remember how long. We were so young it seems...so much younger than Kevin.
For Richard and me you were like a one of our brothers.
Dona and I were so shocked to read about Kevin's death.
The pain and sorrow must seem unbearable.
I don't know the words to say other than we are with you and your family deeply in spirit.
I am sorry I could not be with you during this sorrowful time.
Love to you and Darlene, Stephanie, and Mary
Jack and Dona

We're sorry to hear about your unexpected deep loss.
Dear Mr. and Mrs. Abascal,
I am so very sorry to hear about your loss. Through thick and thin, Kevin was always, and always will be a true Scout and a true friend of mine. I will never forget the times he and I shared together when we were involved with Troop 150. Gosh, I remember he and I started off in the same Patrol together in the Troop. I will miss him so very much, and he and the rest of you are, and always will, remain in my Prayers during this time of hardship. God Bless you all.
To Kevin's family, I am deeply saddened by the loss of your dear Kevin. Although I only knew him a short time, he was quite dear to me. I will always remember how sweet and honorable Kevin was when he visited my home for family activities with my son and fellow firefighters. Kevin was at the hospital before me to visit my son after surgery for a service related operation. He was always so kindhearted and gentle when I saw him. He will certainly be missed by our family. My prayers are with you.
Jerry, Darlene & Stephanie -
We will always remember Kevin as the caring, courteous, and fun-loving young man that was such an integral part of the success of Troop 150 during his tenure there, including the short time that our sons were involved. There are no words we can offer that can ease your pain but please know that you are all in our prayers, now and always.
O God, the Creator and Redeemer of all the faithful, give to your servant departed the full remission of his sins, that he may obtain the pardon he has always desired. You, who live and reign forever and ever. Amen.
Eternal rest grant unto him, O Lord. And let perpetual light shine upon him. Amen.
May the angels lead him into Paradise, may the martyrs come to welcome him and take him to the holy city, the new and eternal Jerusalem. May the choir of angels welcome him where Lazarus is poor no longer, may he have eternal rest. Amen.
May his soul and the souls of all the faithful departed, through the mercy of God, rest in peace. Amen.
My thoughts and prayers are with you and your family during this difficult time.

To Kevin's family,
Please know that you all are in our thoughts and prayers. We were shocked to hear of Kevin's passing. I managed Thibodaux Apartments when he and Mary lived there. My husband Dustin and Kevin became friends, and Kevin even joined the HH&L Vol. Fire Dept with him. We were so proud to see that he joined the NOFD. Although we lost touch over the last couple of years, he will be greatly missed. Just know that he left a trail of fond memories behind, and that is something that you can cherish always. May God have mercy on his soul, and comfort those left behind.
