Kevin - You never know when you have an impact on someone. I was a clerk at Quick Trip and you used to stop in during the overnight shift, get something to drink, and maybe flip through a magazine while we chatted. We were both K-State grads so we talked about sports most of the time. I don't know how many times we met, but it was often enough that I was shocked by your death and you came to my mind almost 20 years afterwards. I am the Great-Great Grandson of Felix Boller, the first Kansas lawman killed in the line of duty in 1867. The reason I mention that is because even long after those who knew you pass on, you will never be truly forgotten. God rest your soul.
