If needed you may borrow from someone, or the family will have extra Packer T-shirts at the church for you to borrow.
Kevin was a “human calculator” who could do math in his head faster than people could get answers on a calculator. Kevin was a kind, funny guy with a giant heart who had an open-door policy at his home, everyone was welcome. Leave it to Kevin to pass on a numerically memorable date 12-02-2021.
