    It’s easy to make light of when you are not near the person.
    Keep in mind that his freinds and family will likely read your posts.
    I was awake when it happened and heard the accident…not something I’ll soon forget.

    How dare you make such horrid remarkes. Kevin was a son, a brother, a boyfriend, a friend, a best friend, a uncle, but most of all a AMAZING person. He was loved by so many! His family and friends are devastated. Please keep in mind of your own loved one’s. This could happen to you or a family member. Be respectful, and watch your harsh words.
