    Valued Kevin so much as a person, human being and a friend.

    What a knowledgeable man in life. What a beautiful family he brought into this world. What a loving wife, Debbie, and a dear friend to me..

    Kevin , I hope you’re not trying to sing with the angels because I think you might be off key.

    Your friend, colleague,

    Rose Cain
