Dear Aunt Betty, Sherry, Cindy, Jeff, Andi, Ashley, and Heather. We are very saddened in hearing of Kevin's passing. Our thoughts and prayers are with you all. Randy, Bobby and I especially had fun throwing and playing football with Kevin in the front yard. He was an excellent athlete. We missed all of you when you moved to Arizona. I'm sorry we didn't keep in touch. If you're ever in New York please come and visit.
