We made a lot of memories
Throughout of childhood days
No worries in this great big world
All we did was play.
I knew you would have my back
That I could count on you
Even now since we've grown up
I know that still is true.
I can't even remember
this first time I saw your face
But I do know within my life
No on can take your place.
We're there for each other
And we will be to the end
By blood we are cousins,
And by our hearts we're friends.


I will always remember when the call came in, and I just thought it was a sick joke. Now reality is sinking in and my heart is broke. I will never forget you and all the crazy stuff we did growing up. The memories I have is what is pulling me through right now... God might have you in his keeping, no matter how far away you are, you will always be in my heart & & will be forever. When I look up to the stars, I remember how special you are and how much I miss you Rest in paradise Kev. I love you
