Little Kevin was well loved by all. Our prayer is that his killer/s will be off of the streets immediately. God knows who shot and killed our baby and God will bring justice. Our family is not angry at whoever did this, we just want justice and we want them to know that Jesus loves them and He can turn their life around. Little Kevin is in the arms of our Heavenly Father and he doesn't have to struggle any more. We will miss Little Kevin so much. He was a good kid and had a heart of gold. I pray that whoever did this does not rest until he turns himself in to the authorities and gives his life to Jesus. Murder is not the answer, Jesus is the answer. AMEN

I am just a friend of Kevin's uncle. I live in NC and I wanted to let the family know that my heart and prayers are with them!

I thank God that Kevin knew we loved him dearly and we knew he loved us too. We will miss him, but we will see him again.

Our heart has been broken, but God is a mender of broken hearts.

Glory to God!

It's kind of surreal to think that it's almost been a year since we lost you. You were my brother in a sense seein as we grew up together. Yeah I remember the sunshine band (cutting up in the back rows during church), playing Sega until our thumbs ached, arguing over who got to be the green Power Ranger, and that trip to Disneyland haha. I'll always cherish the time, however short it was, I was so lucky to have shared with you and I just want you to know I'll never forget you.
Your brother and bestfriend,
Nique

...well, it's 3:45 am, and I'm just thinking about my son..Kevin Jr, Lil Kev, K.J., 'LiL Buddy'....I miss him more than anyone could know..but I only miss him, but God caught him in His everlasting, ever loving, Oh soooooo tender arms; we must realize that with God, nothing goes unnoticed or unseen; If God had something else for KJ to do, he would still be here...in the 'flesh'...all that he was, was ordained by his Creator.."and it (KJ) was good.."...tbc.

Well, it's October 2014 and I miss you like crazy my son... God continues to comfort and give peace. we are so blessed to have spent 20 years with you. You were such a joy and a wonderful son. Even though you had a rough time as a teenager you were still a blessing. It hurts that we did not get to see you get married and have our grand children. We had so many dreams and hopes for you... Miss your smiles, hugs, laughter... I remember how even as a young boy you were always so helpful and was quick to help me carry in grocery bags or anything that you thought was heavy.Even when you were older, you would always help. So when it gets a little heavy down here, God carries our bags... I love you and miss you so much and look forward to seeing you again one day in glory. Love Mom
