I am very grateful to have had you in my life. Although our bond was not biological, through time I grew to appreciate the relationship, and the time and effort put into it. I thought of you as my father, and know you felt the same. You were the only one who ever truly filled that space in my heart and life, and that will never change. We have shared a lot of life's precious moments together; happy, sad, and everything in between and I have grown to really love and appreciate all of them. Thank you for your friendship and being there as a father, father in-law, and grandfather. I love and miss you very much. You made all of our lives better with each role you played, and you will be missed more than you could ever know. I am thankful to have had the opportunity to share this sentiment with you before God called you Home. My thoughts and prayers are with the rest of the family as they journey through their process of losing you. It brings me peace to know you are with your dad, other loved ones, and beloved pets we've lost along the way. I know you are still with those of us you love in spirit. Thank you for the unique way you let me know you are okay and arrived Home with our Heavenly Father, message received! ❤️ Until we see each other again...Love Always, your daughter 😘

Bonnie is a special friend of mine since high school. Once she introduced Kevin to me I knew he was the the love of her life. He treated Bonnie with love, kindness, and respect. My heart aches for Bonnie and family. Kevin is in peace in God's loving arms.
