    Very sorry for your loss. It’s a tough time but you will get through it. You’re never to old to miss your parent! You’ll always have your memories. My thoughts are with you.

    I have known Kevin since he was in junior high school. He was my late brother’s best friend. We grew up together and he was a regular at my house calling my parents Mom and Dad. After graduation from high school, we lost touch and reunited with Kevin in 2013, the year my brother died. Before my brother died, we spent a lot of time with Kevin and talked about old times and growing up in Brockton. He was a second brother to me. He called me Sis and help me through the death of my brother. He was a wonderful guy, kind and funny. I will miss him terribly. I lost both my brothers, but you are together now getting into trouble I’m sure. Love you bro, rest in peace.
