  2. candle 2Kevin was pretty funny at times, ill always cherish the good memories ive shared with my brother, and the bad ones too. I love Kevin even though he was a little much sometimes, he was pretty cool and got me a lot of the things that I own today.

    Love For Ever And Always, Brother Joseph.

  3. candle 8Hey Kevin “The Great”, didn’t think this day would come so soon. I am finding myself wishing I had been a better friend and spent more time with you. I see that I’ve missed so much. One thing for sure you spoke with great wisdom especially when folks thought you were difficult. Although, you’ve made this journey before expected I know it was The Most High Abba who has you where he needs you. I can only imagine you’re talking to God and chillin with Jesus while getting answers to the whys of the things we couldn’t answer. It’s my prayer that your new adventure will bring you all together in heaven just one more time. its not easy for my friend to let you go but one thing for sure your mission has been done. keep the duces up and flow with grace till we meet again in Gods time. OH and tell Michael Gabriel to watch over your mom and family… They’ve always been your biggest fan.

    • Thank you for sharing your memory of my son Kevin and your caring and thoughtful words. May God bless you and your family.

      Love Always …

  4. candle 4The Sky opened up that unimaginable day and there was that moment in time where God swept you away That moment, I feared was here and it was clear that this was it you would no longer be near. My heart aches in agony and I’m shattered throughout. I’ll never be the same again, this I know. I’m flooded with memories of you everywhere that I go. This hurt is so deep in my soul, I just don’t know what to do. Sometimes something tells me I should be gone and not you. The truth of the matter is; my son I love you so much I would give anything to see you just once to say it again how much I love, and I miss you, and give your face one last touch.

    Kevin my son Mom loves and will miss you everyday till my time here is done..

    love you forever Mom.

  11. candle 2Little brother<3… I wish I didn't have to write this… because God knows this is something I'd neverrr imagine taking place. I feel like this is me reminding myself that this is reality happening here, and I don't wanna face it each and everyday that passes and youre not here. I hate to admit that i miss the missions you'd have me on,, whether it was for food, your vehicles, or your late night weed requests. Life is still and dull without you here!! Your absence is painful to us all, all of us who love and care for you. I don't understand why this is, why your time came too sudden in the way it did, but all I know is that it must be for the highers purpose… But I just hope you find peace and all of the more wherever you may be now. Whether on your journey, in the skies above or even if your still trying to find your way. Member brother I love you oh so much. Always have and always will forever and ever!! You took a huge part of me and mommy by having to go like this.. All we can think of is why?! But, besides that I dread the day ill have to say my last goodbye to you ),: I guess we will have our days again sometime in the future huh lil brother…. I miss you big head…. Everything I been through with you. How you've always had my back and looked out for your big sis. I'm proud of your achievements and productive doings in life. I'm even more proud to be able to call you my lil brother. Soon your gonna be an uncle…. I just really wished you could've been here to witness and be a part of it… it breaks my heart over and over just knowing it won't be that way.. I will hold you in my heart forever & more. Love you plenty.
    -Your sis, Amanda.

We’re all heartbroken but I know your up there looking after us now. We’re going to keep your memory Alive always. Pops loves you bro he’s being strong for all of us.

I Love You Kevin I’m going to miss you lil bro. I know when my time comes you be there waiting for me. Your big brother Edwin love you forever and always!!!!!!!

  13. candle 4There are no words that can describe how devastating losing you is, all of us that were close to you and love you feel the unfairness of seeing you go way ahead of your time. We all believe that you had a lot more to achieve and offer in this life. The heartache that we bear in a heavy burden with only the comfort that you are watching over us with our Lord Jesus making sure that we’re ok. I wish we had more time to share with our family. I’ll always cherish the good times we had. You’ll always live in our hearts and you won’t be forgotten until we could all be together again.

    See you later bro.

Specially when I would get into at home with the wife you were always the only person that would pick me up and we’ll end up working together… I fuckn miss you bro, you became a Boss just like you would always scream out when we used to be on 109 st and Figueroa. You are such a good person, friend, and a brother to all of us. You are the definition of a real loyal friend something this life don’t have much left in it.

  20. candle 3Yo
    Nunca dejamos de aprender, la vida es una lección, sigo tratando de procesar todo esto. Ni siquiera se si escribir aquí sirva. Pero tal vez me de alivio.
    Por que tengo ese sentimiento de que me haces falta paso por los lugares donde nos posteavamos y veo a las personas con que nos tocaba estar y siento ese vacío esa inestabilidad emocional yo se que tampoco voy a estar aquí para siempre. Pero yo estaba loco de verte triunfar como siempre dije sos mi líder el pawer ranyer rojo de nuestro equipo. Y estoy 100% seguro que nos vamos a volver a ver solo que el tiempo aquí se hace lento. Todo lo qué hay en este mundo no tiene valor alguno al que tiene la familia o el amor. con todos mis más sinceridad i love u mi perro
