It is difficult in a short message to do justice to the many fine personal qualities that Kevin Kisling demonstrated daily, such as his way of making everyone feel important. My wife Marie and I got to know Kevin very well over many years as we shopped at his Hy-Vee store. We talked to him a lot and really got to know him and the love he had for his family. Marie started calling Kevin her "adopted son". That is how much she cared for him, he was so special to us! We were not Kevin's family, but we both feel a deep sense of loss at losing our cherished friend Kevin. May God bless his soul, his wife Carol and all their family.
