There is a little boy inside the man who is our brother. There is no other love like the love of him. Our brother is a friend God gave us. We will forever long for his gentle kindness, humor, and smile. Kevin was life to a family get-together; the smile of our family; and a most loving father and uncle to his nieces and nephews. He was a gentle friend who had very close longtime buddies and a brother to many because of his simple kindness. There is no other love like a love from a brother especially with his name Jon Kevin. Prior to his final months of life, Kevin, a loving son, took care of our mother Ann, who passed Oct. 30, 2012. God Bless you forever Kevin.
