Tell Us About Them:

Kevin was very compassionate, especially to children, elderly and dogs. He had an amazing insight into people in general and always stuck up for the underdog. Kevins heart was huge! He loved his family and would always tell us , thats why it hurts soooooo much.


Tell Us About Their Struggles With Addiction:

Kevin was such a sensitive child which was good and bad. WHen he turn 16 his Dad almost died and kevin struggled with all the emotions which started the spiral effect into drugs starting with marijuana. Kevin came to us days after trying this realizing he liked it to much and said he couldn't stop. Even though we got him counseling right away. It just spiraled out of control with one drug and one rehab after another. Finally getting a dual diagnosis of depression and anxiety which helped for a time once he got on the some meds. But even that didn't last. Kevin was always open and honest about his struggle when he was sober. He would say that for whatever reason all the love in the world can't touch the darkness he struggles with on a daily bases.


What Made Them Smile?

Kevin LOVED his dog Zoe. She was the light of his life. As well as Kevin sister Nicole, they were very close.


What Do You Miss the Most About Them?

I miss Kevins BIG bear hugs and the way he would just come in and snuggle asking for his back to be scratched . His deep voice tell me he loved me and his helpfulness.


If You Had a Chance to Say One More Thing to Your Angel What Would It Be?

I love you more than life itself! xx
