Michelle, you crossed my path in Bangkok and eventually became a friend. Your smile, your joy and happiness filled everywhere you passed. You loved life and people but most of all you loved your parents, your family and Texas! We were fortunate you visited Brasil when my husband was terminally ill. You made him laugh again; we stayed up all night for Carnaval, then headed for the beach and fell asleep on the sand. Best Carnaval! Thank you for sharing your too short life; thank you for always being positive, kind and thoughtful. You are greatly missed.

Departed ~ 7/8/2008 ~ Heart Attack




This saddens me greatly. I recall his gentle quiet nature. We lived in the same apt complex in Bangkok. I recall Kevin and used to play Monopoly while cross legged on the floor listening to the latest records from the US. We were all at an age in Thailand trying to find our way in a foreign land we called home. He made me feel safe out on the streets of Bangkok when we all used to get crazy so late at night. It was fun reconnecting and seeing Kevin at our gatherings in the DC area. Kevin was so easy going, steady, kindhearted, a good listener, non judgmental and one that many can easily call a friend. My heart is very heavy today and my thoughts are with his family.
