Memorial website in the memory of your loved one

Our Kevin was funny, loving, generous and so very handsome. He had the best smile - when he laughed his eyes danced. On June 21, 2005 the shining light that was Kevin went out forever because of a careless driver. There is a hole in my heart that cannot heal, cannot be filled and will ache every minute of every day for the rest of my life.

Kevin’s memorial service was held on July 2, 2005 at St. Luke’s Episcopal Church in Long Beach, CA - it was the most difficult day of my life and yet, at the same time, an amazing day filled with an outpouring of love, hugs , tears and lots of stories from so many people. Some I knew - others I met there for the first time. It was just about as diverse a group as one could possibly gather, yet it was reflective of Kevin’s world and who he was. Those attending were young, old, wore suits, uniforms, jeans, and of every ethnicity - all of his friends shared one quality…..loyalty and a great heart.

It’s my intention to set up this website for those of us who miss him greatly to visit, share stories and memories that will hopefully comfort each of us.

Love and hugs to all of you,

Irene
