My sincere condolence to you & your family, for the loss of your dear love one Kevin. Life is such a precious gift and yet so short lived for the time we exist. God holds out a wonderful hope for all those in the memorial tomb. At John 11:25 Jesus said "I am the resurrection and the life he that exercises faith in me even though he dies will live again."  May the God of comfort and peace be with you in this time of sorrow. May the fond memories of Kevin stay close to your heart. (php 4:7)_

I grew up knowing Kevin through our church, First United Methodist in Richwood. We were both in the junior choir together as well as the youth group. I remember Kevin always had a very nice smile. He always helped out at church and was overall a great person. After I moved from Richwood I lost track of him and I heard he married Marsha who went to my high school. A mutual friend told me he had leukemia and I prayed for him to be cured. What a horrible thing to happen to such a nice person, especially one with children. The same friend told me he had passed away and I felt sad the loss of someone I had once known. I knew he was in heaven and was with God and feeling no more pain. I know that doesn't make it any easier for those he left behind. My deepest condolences to the Cheney family on Kevin's passing. I hope they have many wonderful and happy memories to help them over these next few months.
