Memories bring tears, but I would not trade one memory for all the tears I've shed. Looking out the 4th floor window at work at the flag hanging across the road in honor of Kevin, breaks my heart. You should be here. He should be here. Senseless tragedies that have rocked our community and shattered hearts of friends and family. Both deaths so uncalled for. I miss you...always...
