Kevin is my friend for life. I've known him for 50 years, since Junior High. His values, honesty, patience, kindness and peace, will always be with me, though I will never emulate them as well as he.

I know he crossed the Jordan, as one of God's people. Some day, my friend....

Our deepest sympathy to Carol and family. Kevin was Jen's "Kirksville Dad" when she swam with Tracie and the other Truman "mermaids". Our hearts go out to you in this time of grief and remembrance.

Don and Mary Jo Vogt
