Our thoughts and prayers are with you, your Dad, Kevin and the rest of the family. Your family means so much to us. We have been neighbors for over 40 years. We are here for you all. Your mom was such an amazing woman. She lent a helping hand to us when our father passed and was a shoulder to lean on for my mother.
God Bless You All!
with love- Dora Perez and Family
