I am deeply saddened for this great loss! Kevin was so kind and quickly befriended me and my husband. My husband was former LE and undergoing chemo. Kevin provided the comradery my husband was missing from having to medically retire. My husband passed in 2017, he is waiting to welcome you Kevin.
With much love and peace to you both!
