Memorial
If roses grow in heaven, Lord, please pick a
bunch for me, place them in Kevin’s arms and tell him they're from me.
Tell him I love and miss him, and when he turns to smile, place a kiss
upon his cheek and hold him for awhile. Because remembering him is easy,
I do it everyday, but there's an ache within my heart that ...will never go
away. Miss and love you.



God saw you getting tired,
And a cure was not to be.
So He put His arms around you,
And whispered, "Come with me."

With tearful eyes we watch you,
and saw you pass away.
Although we loved you dearly,
We could not make you stay.

A golden heart stopped beating,
Hard working hands at rest.
God broke our hearts to prove to us,
He only takes THE BEST!


I wish Heaven had a phone so I could hear your voice again.. I thought of you today, but that is nothing new. I thought about you yesterday, and days before that too. I think of you in silence, I often speak your name. All I have are memories and a picture in a frame. Your memory is a keepsake from which I'll never part. God has you in his arms, I have you in my heart.



The Gift
"Lil Kev", a name that did not really serve its purpose. He was little only by place in the family, not by his physical size or by the size of his heart. Calling him little only brought confusion to the kids in this family. They wonder why we would call him little? You see, kids can only see the outside. As adults, we see how that name could no longer fit such a personality. Throughout the years of watching him grow time showed all the large, caring things he did for others. Kevin was known as the protector for many of us, a big brother who would look over his little sister, Jamie, a cousin that would beat up bullies at the bus stop, and a friend who would always have your back. However, he was never to big to say, "I love you, mom." or give a kiss as he walked out the door.

You see, from the moment he entered this world he touched so many lives. Many of us had our first encounter with Lil' Kev upon Beth and Kevin's arrival from NY. We all waited anxiously to finally meet the first grandson of this family. I can remember grandma's voice yelling in the background, "Don't scare the baby!" as we all raced out to finally meet him. To be honest, I wished we would have known the mischief-maker he was going to become. That day, we might not have been so quiet. However, it is no wonder he was the way that he was. Kevin never stood a chance when it came to others in the family. From being dressed like a girl to being called sissy, as the years passed Kevin toughened and later grew to understand the meaning of retaliation.

Many of us can honestly say that his torment was enough to make any of us laugh, mad, or frustrated. From testing us as a child to teasing as an adult some things never changed. Kevin made life fun. He lived everyday to its fullest. Working hard and playing hard everyday of his life was spent doing things he truly loved. Spending time at the property was his true passion. He would excitedly pack his thing on a Friday afternoon to just spend time camping with his family. In only three short years he passed his passion onto his son. When given a chance, Kullan is happiest walking in his daddy's foot steps, something that we will never let him forget. You see teh apple did not fall far from the tree when it comes to his children. When we want to laugh or a sweet memory of what once was, we need not look far. Look into Kullan and Taryn's eyes and you can see the playful personality and compassionate person their daddy once was.

His orneriness was his most dominate and undoubtedly, best trait. You could always count on him to do something outrageous, like putting quarters in his nose (just because he could), show you the moon on a sunny day, play poker and not feel bad about taking someone's money, or try to use a blow horn at his own high school graduation just to see if he could get away with it (for the record, it was who you think it was, but only out of love and protection for you)

Kevin was never afraid to stand out and be noticed. From splashing us in the creek as children to throwing us in pools as adults, you could always count on Kevin to give everyone a laugh. Although at the time he might have been the instigator at family gatherings, looking back, this is what made us love him the most. Kevin's ultimate goal was to see if he could get a rise out of someone. If he did, it made his day. Playing jokes and horsing around was all Kevin knew. Although frustrating to some, I will forever miss his playful ways. From this day on, family gatherings will never be as loud, kids will not be blessed with as much teasing, and of course, one seat will always be open at the poker table.

On the other hand, Kevin was also a very responsible young man. From good grades to great work ethics, he had his act together. He married and had children young. He was a floor layer who followed in his dad's footsteps. He made his parents proud everyday of his life and touched the lives of so many in the Union. He created a life that many people could only dream to have. He accomplished this in such a short amount of time he had on this earth. He once said that he wanted to marry and have children young so that he could still be young while they too were growing up. Little did we know that for whatever reason, God had a different plan. If it weren't for his choices we would not be blessed with 2 babies who will continue to grace us with daily reminders of him and his wife, Nikki, who will forever be our family. Thank you for marrying Kevin and giving him the dream he wanted.

Never did we think we would be sitting here today. Asking ourselves, why? Why someone so young, with so much life yet to live? We will forever be searching for the justification of the "what if". Although, looking into our future doesn't seem so bright anymore, looking into our past may help us find comfort. Remembering the good times will one day bring peace into our lives again. I know in my heart, time will heal these wound too.

Today we will say goodbye to a husband, daddy, son, brother, son-in-law, brother-in-law, grandson, nephew, cousin, friend, whatever the role he was known to everyone as Kevin David, Lil' Kev, Little guy, Jr and yes even girly man. Thank you Kevin for coming into our lives and touching each one of us in different ways. May we all have the strength to carry on all you wonderful traits so that you children will always know you and love you the way that we love you today. You leave behind a wife of only 4 1/2 years, 2 beautiful children, a mother, a father, a sister and so many other family members and friends who will forever miss you.

I miss you so much. My hart breaks every day from not having you here. I see Kullun and Taryn and see you in them and wonder what they would be like if you were here. They are great kids and that is because of your mom and dad. It's amazing how much Raynee loves you and has never seen you. I love and miss you so much. It is hard to believe that you have been gone 9 years but I can still here your voice and feel your hugs. Please keep watching over Kullan, Tayrn, Raynee, Jamie and your mom and dad. You are the perfect guardian angel. Love you and miss you.
