Snapper and family, so sorry to hear of the sudden passing of Kev, love and hugs.
Kev was a great mate from those years at Oaonui primary, Opunake High to those party years in our teens. We didn't see much of each other in our later years, but when we met Kev would always say "come on Grims lets have a beer". A great mate gone too soon. Dave and Kev will be getting on it. xxx

My dear, dear friend Snapper we were so saddened to hear that Kevin has passed so suddenly. Our thoughts and love are with you all. This little was poem was given to me and I am passing it on to you when you think of your beloved Kevin.
"Think of Me"
Don't think of me as gone...
My journey's just begun.
There are many paths in life
this earth is only one.
Think of me as living
in the hearts of those I touched,
for nothing loved is ever lost
and I know I was loved so much.

Love to you all

Robyn & Dean
