‘TO MY BROTHER KEVIN. I DON’T EVEN KNOW WHERE TO START THERE IS SO MUCH I WANT TO SAY BUT I DON’T THINK I WILL EVER MANAGE TO SAY IT ALL IN ONE DAY.

FOR THE PAST WEEK, WE HAD DEEP CONVERSATIONS ABOUT LIFE AND DESPITE YOUR PAIN YOU STILL TRIED TO BE POSITIVE. YOU TOLD ME THAT IF ONE DAY I AM TO TALK TO PEOPLE ABOUT YOU I SHOULD TELL THEM HOW YOU WERE FULL OF LIFE AND THAT’S EXACTLY WHAT I WILL DO BRO. KEVIN, YOU ARE A WARRIOR AND YOU FOUGHT UNTIL THE END. I LOVE YOU SO MUCH, BROTHER. REST IN PEACE BRO.

May his soul rest in peace!
