  8. Kevin Gamache, one of the greatest people I’ve ever met and truly one of my best friends ever. You were very intelligent and you reminded me of a much more mature version of myself when I was your age. I think that’s why we we’re able to connect on such a deep level so quickly, not only were we like minded but I could see how good of a person you truly were in your heart. I honestly feel today in age it is hard to find someone as honest and kind spirited as you. In a world of darkness you definitely shine. You’ve made such an impact on my life and I will never forget you. It was way too early and way too soon. I love you like a brother man, always.

  9. At this difficult time in your life, we pray that God will grant you the peace that you need to get through this. Sincere condolences!
