Last Friday morning, we receieved a phone call from Brandon's little brother with horrible news. Brandon's Dad had passed away in his sleep. It was sudden and unexpected, so everyone was in complete shock. Brandon's Dad was an amazing man. He was sincere, genuine, goofy, loving, compassionate and had a laugh that could completely fill up a room. His bear hugs were always there to greet me, although he and Brandon always gave eachother "knuckles" in place of a "man hug". There are so many great memories that we are left with of Kevin and his magnetic personality. He really was the life of the party and could always put a smile on our faces. As Brandon has been saying for the past week, although his Dad is no longer here, he lives on through his three boys who share his blood, his zest for life, his love of the Broncos, his passion for the outdoors, and last but not least, his unconditional love for his family. If this loss has taught us anything, Brandon and I feel a new appreciation for each new day. Life is short and fragile, so we must hug our loved ones, enjoy each experience and make every day worth every second. We love you Kevin and you will always be missed.
