    Karen, Susan and all the Brickley’s,
    I was quite sad to learn of Kevin’s passing from Bella. I have only fond memories of Kevin. From our Parker Staples days when he worked in the schools, when he played softball on “Team Riverdale”, Kevin was always excited about everything and always so happy to see you. A true gentle giant, I often had to remind him that he was crushing my ribs when upon greeting him, it would result in a magnificent bear hug. If we could all learn from his demeanor that no matter how bad our day, there is always happiness to be found. I pray for him and for all of you in this hour of need.
