I am so very sorry for your loss. My prayers are with you. If there’s anything you need, please let me know.
Kevin was a great person, I had the privilege of being one of his Hockey coaches. He loved a challenge it’s not every kid who plays ice hockey will just volunteer to be a high school goalie but he did. I really did enjoy the time I was able to spend with Kevin as any coach should with all of their players and even after he graduated Kevin was always very respectful towards me. It warms my heart when a former player continues to call me coach, it’s a very sad time and my thoughts go out to the family especially his mother I am truly sorry for your loss. 💗
Lauren and I are so very sorry for your loss. Our family will keep your family in our thoughts and prayers.
