Thinking a lot about Kevin.
How long have I known him ? 50 years or more ?
In those 50 years, every time I met him, his eyes lit up and a big smile or laugh broke out. It was like he was about to show me (and only me) his secretest treasure.
That was friendship with Kevin.
Every time... over 50 years...

Dear Washington Family,

I am so sorry for your loss. Kevin and I went to Everett High School together and Greg and I were in a car pool way back when. Two of the nicest gentlemen it has been my pleasure to know. Although it has been many years since I have seen either of them I have fond memories. Rest in Peace Kevin, you were always one of my favorite class mates.

I wish I could be there to say my final goodbye to you Kevin, but know I am there in spirit. Soar high Kevin ! You will forever be missed. ❤❤❤

Thank you for taking the time to leave such a nasty comment on my Uncle’s obituary where all of his nieces and nephews are able to read. Like my grandmother taught me since I was a little girl, “If you have nothing nice to say then just don’t say anything “. I guess you never received that lesson. God Bless you!

Uncle Bobo regardless of any of your imperfections we loved you and your family and true friends will miss you. I hope you’re resting in true peace. Love your niece!
