    I’m going to miss the phone talks that I had with Kevin so much. I’m lucky to have known him. There are so many activities in my life that will remind me of him whenever I’m enjoying them. Be it music, football or politics, we agreed on everything. I love him and will always think of him as the brother I never had. –Fritz

    Dear Christopher Family,
    I am so sorry to have read of your loss. Please accept my sincere condolences. Something that I have found to be a great source of comfort are the thoughts expressed in the Bible at John 5:28,29 where we see that there is going to be a resurrection of those who have fallen asleep in death. Also at Revelation 21:4 we see that God is going to eliminate all of the causes for why we deal with sorrow, pain and even death itself. It is my sincere hope that these thoughts bring your family comfort at this time. Once again I am so sorry for your loss.

    Greg, I am so sorry to hear about your Uncle Kevin. My memories of Kevin began with the enduring friendship he forged many years ago with your dad, Maria, Steve and your grandparents. His loyal friendship, humor, love of cooking any many kindnesses over the years have created a beautiful remembrance of a great guy. I am so sorry for your loss, Much love. -Patty

    One of the nicest, kindest people we have had the pleasure to talk to. He never had anything but a good attitude and always made you glad he took time to talk to you. He recently stopped by to see my husband’s new car and said anytime we wanted he would wash and wax it, we laughed and told him stop by anytime. He always asked about my mom, who has now passed, but he always took time for her when she was with us. God only takes the best early, and Kevin was one of the best.

    “Those we love remain with us for love itself lives on,

    and cherished memories never fade because a loved one’s gone.

    Those we love can never be more than a thought apart,

    for as long as there is memory,

    they’ll live on in the heart.”
