For Kevin

It's been 1 year today since we lost Kevin. Sometimes the emotion is so strong that it seems like yesterday and at other times it seems like he has been gone for years and has missed so much.
It was hard to sort through the pictures I have of him and see that since last year, I have no new pictures to include in this slide. Because of the amazing love of our Heavenly Father and through the Spirit, we Know that he has been with us during every special moment in our lives this year. However this song sums up my feelings perfectly...

Dear Kevin,
We love you and we miss you. We know that we will see you on the other side in due time and that the work you are doing for our family is invaluable. We tell the kids stories and show them pictures but feel sad that they do not get to learn directly from you. Kevin reminds us all the time that you are not dead, you are just living with Jesus. But even in his perfect faith he admits that he wishes you would live with Grandma Jones again. We are so grateful for the wonderful moments we have been able to spend with you through the spirit and we look forward to the future, but sometimes it's hard because we just want to hold your hand.
