    Uncle Kevin was one of the best! So kind and so generous! So much love for Aunt Peggy who loved him just as much ❤️ So many great memories. Especially at Christmas with all the family gathered in his game room around the bar or the annual St Patrick's Day Party in the Park! It won't be the same without him but he will always be with us. We love you Uncle Kevin! Rest Easy 🙏

    Well, the Lord called home, my brother, my idol and my friend. I'm definitely gonna miss our weekly talks when I would call him to see how he was doing and how things were going and just spent hours talking about just about anything sports even though I wasn't much of a sports fanatic, but I would mostly listen and get brotherly advice on whatever we talked about or whatever I needed advice on mostly family and his love for family and friends how much he cared about Peggy and loved her how he just loved life itself smile on his face all the time the way he cared about family in there's so many memories over my life and I'm gonna miss it but it'll be OK. I know that because he's looking down over us. He'll be watching over us he'll show us from time to time that he's still there beside us, laughing when we do something silly, love you brother rest in peace the biggest thing I remember is M reaching out to shake my hand and pulled me in  for a hug on his last day here gonna miss you definitely until we see each other again give everybody up there with you bake ugh. I don't know. We love you and we miss you guys may be gone but you'll never be forgotten.

I remember when you stayed a week with us and you were over Jerrys and clark had to work and you and paul called the house at 3 in the morning wondering if he had hair on his chest.
