I want to pay my respects for the friends and family of Kevin and specially to Jerry. I'm so sorry.
I had the pleasure of meeting Kevin this past year and his husband Jerry and I couldn't think of two people meant for each other. Maybe now it was time for Kevin to leave us but I sill think life wasn't wrong by uniting u both, because that special bond u have will live forever in your harts and will make u found each other in the afterlife.
My condolences, and I send a big hug from Mexico City.

Wishing Jerry, family and friends peace and comfort in this difficult time. I will always cherish the good times and fond memories with Kevin from our high school days. S curve parties, an afternoon of golf, riding around having fun, school dances, basketball games or just hanging out. Kevin was always so thoughtful and considerate. A good listener. You will be missed my friend. Blessings.

I'm still at a loss for words. My heart breaks for the family who have lost such a huge heart and genuine soul. I'll never forget the times chatting with him over a glass of wine, nor will I forget doing shots of some sort of blueberry concoction he just had to have me try!! Rest well my friend, you will be missed.
