    Correction on my post above, I accidentally wrote Eva’s name wrong. She is my 1st cousin & I know her name is: Eva Burnette Thomas. Asking God to hold you & your family close & give you strength especially during this great loss of your precious son Kevin Thomas.

    Kevin was always such a positive energy to be around for so many of us growing up through out elementary and high school. Always had a big smile on his face and knew how to make us laugh. My condolences, thoughts, and prayers go out to the family and those closest to him. We’ll see again, my friend.
