My dog Sammy and I met Kevin and Caesar at the dog park last summer. Kevin was a friendly and kind man. May he rest in peace.

Kevin worked with me for three years. He was a wonderful person and an excellent neuroscientist. He made important contributions to science and he truly left the world a better place. I regret that I cannot attend the services on Saturday. I will leaving town for memorial services for a family member in Ohio. My condolences to the family.

To the entire Happe family- my husband Howard and I knew Kevin for many years, as we trained in the same department at UNMC when he was studying for his PhD. He was a wonderful colleague and friend, one of the nicest and caring people we've known. Our heartfelt condolences to you all.

My condolences to the entire Happe family. Kevin was such a nice kid and it appears he turned out to be a great adult and loving family man. It was great living next door so many many years ago. MIKE & DOROTHY ENRIGHT, Deltona, Fla.
