    I will miss my Uncle Kevin. He was a great man and truely a fighter. He taught me alot that I know about sports. Taught me alot about the races and baseball and basketball. He was always up to date on all the scores and stats and always took time to tell you of a game or race if I missed one and wanted to know the results. He also taught me the love of bingo along with grandma and taught me how to do sudoku and crosswords. I hadn’t seen him alot in last few years since they moved to Addams but I was always happy to see my uncle when I visited and always asked about him whenever I saw my grandparents or talked to him when I called. We joked and called each other few names but knew we loved each other.

    We will miss you alot Uncle Kevin and hope to see you when its my time…RIP Uncle Kevin

  9. Traci Peddie says:

    Kevin was a courageous warrior! He fought for so long and from what I know, being so far away, he usually had a smile on his face. He was pretty impressive as Mary Caroline stated with all he knew about sports and stats. I know each of you will forever miss him but he no longer has to be brave or strong, he now walks pain free with our Lord. I hope that thought gives you some peace while you grieve. You are each in my thoughts and prayers!

  10. Mary-Caroline Peddie says:

    Just wanted to say how very heavy my heart is for each of you. Kevin definitely was one of a kind. I certainly appreciated his quick wit and banter with me. He could dish it back as much as I gave it…..I enjoyed that. Dad always talks about his ability to know stats/facts re sports, etc. He was always amazed by that. I hope you take some comfort in that he is pain free now and welcomed to heaven with open arms by many…. My thoughts and prayers are with you guys.
