Kevin shared a bond full of Love, with his grandmother Loretta, anything he wanted or needed his grandmother “Lala” made sure he never went without. One day he asked her to get him a pet, so she bought him hermit crabs, and snakes. Kevin knew that his sister and cousins were all scared of his new pet’s so he would take them out and chase them, he found that so funny. He was so quiet and reserved but would sneak and mess with his sister and cousin’s and run back in the room like he didn’t do anything at all, because he knew he would never get in trouble. His smile would light up a room and melt your heart. He will truly be missed.
