  Farewell my old friend.  You made such a lasting impact on our lives, never to be forgotten!  A part of you travels on with us.  Though you have gone the way of all the World, your memory lives on in our hearts and minds.  Let us all draw near to each other, for it is certain we shall not all pass this way again....

 I’m sorry to read of Kevin‘s passing. He was a very good friend of mine in our younger days. He also helped my mother while she was sick a few years ago At the facility she was at for about 30 days. I had no idea that Kevin was sick. I do not know how he passed away exactly? I know he spent decades in the landscape Business. It kind of makes me wonder if the round up weed killer is involved with his passing. Kevin was a good man to say the least!!
