Condolences

Condolence From: Glenna Schumann
Condolence: I met Kevin at a Craps table 8 years ago in Las Vegas. We stayed in contact over the years. He schooled me on the types of savings and investments I should get. I'd call him anytime I had a financial question or needed a mentor or love advice. I talked to him a few days before he passed. He asked me to come visit him in New York, which I should've caught the unusual invitation since it was the first time he'd ever asked me that. I recently called and asked if he would resend me the song he wrote for me but I never got it. He text me the day or 2 before he passed. He simply sent me a hand throwing the peace sign and a heart. When I tried to text and call back, I knew something was very wrong when it went straight to VM. He was such a wonderful and pleasant person. When we talked on the phone recently, he told me a few things he was going thru but I had no idea he was in such a bad mental place. It truly breaks my heart for such a loving and gentle guy to hurt that bad and to feel such hopelessness...
Kevin, you deserved so much more. You were a light to some people and a breath of fresh air. I'll never forget you. I think of you often. I'm sorry I left your invitation hanging. I did care. I still do. I pray you have the peace now that you struggled so long to find. You are painfully missed. Please look out for me up there. I love you.

Condolence: Kevin and I were friends since grade school. Lived 10 minuets apart and shared a lot of good times. The last time I spoke with him was a couple of years ago when my father passed away. He was our little league coach and Kevin shared a few memories of my Dad. It was a nice conversation followed up with we need to get together. I think those words are passed all too often with no follow up. I struggle to find the reasons why the boy, the man a knew would struggle so badly to think there was only one answer left. I’m sorry I didn’t realize he was in need. Next time you tell an old friend, we need to get together do it. Good bye for now my friend I hope you have found peace.

Condolence: I met Kev through a mutual friend during my first scary days of acclimating to NYC. He was happy to make relevant introductions to get build my network...for no other reason than to simply "give a darn" :)

Condolence: I only knew Kevin for a little more than a year; we met when he started coming to my open mic in Nyack. We quickly became friends, he was a good guy, friendly, funny and a great musician to boot. I was able to catch him with his band, the Torpedoes, and they all seemed to be having a great time. I am shocked and saddened by this, and I extend my deepest condolences to Kevin's family. May he rest in Peace.
