    On the behalf of the congregation at Woodard Chapel Church and Church family of sister Linda – Kevin’s mother at 3710 Brunswick Highway, Waycross, GA 31503 we send our prayers to all of Kevin’s hurting family…trust in the Lord and know for a fact that He knows your pain and He will and is walking with each one of you every step of the way and He will continue to, He promises to never leave us or forsake us and unlike us He always keeps His promises. Jesus loves you and so do we.

    I have known Kevin basically all my life along with the rest of his family. Anytime we would see each other there was always a big hug involved. Kevin you were basically a big brother, a great friend and great everything. You will be greatly missed by many. Fly high my friend.
