In life we sometimes question God. We want answers, we want facts, we want closure. We forget who God is, we forget HOW MUCH he loves us all. We are all his children. ALL OF US. No matter WHAT we do in life, he loves us unconditionally. As much as I asked, as much as I prayed, as much as I questioned the situation I got less frustrated. I spoke with God, this brought me closer to him. He knows what was going to happen before it happened. This may test some peoples faith, I've been down this road 4 times already.
All I can really say is I feel so blessed to have known such an amazing person. God brought Kevin into our lives. Kevin filled it with facts about Adidas, LeBron James, extra stuff about sports that I never knew. His LOVE for always looking FRESH, always with that smile and FRESHER THAN FRESH KICKS. This amazing, smart, loving and wonderful human also suffered. Always did his best to put a smile on someones face.
It really sucks seeing our family go through the loss of Kevin. He was only 22 years old, birthday was right around the corner. He will be 22 forever. It's crazy to think about it, it's hard to process it too. He was there on the best day of my life, my wedding. I was hoping I'd be at his. My husband and I had an idea of maybe in the future after we had children that if Kevin was married, they could be our child's Godparents for his or her baptism. Just like Kevin's parents became our Godparents at our wedding. It's crazy how we can make plans but God has his own. My Nana always used to tell me, don't count your eggs before you buy your chickens. It's true. There are no words I can say to make this situation better, there is nothing I can do to turn back time. What I can do is celebrate his life, remember the great times, remember the not so great times, and pray. Pray for him, pray for his family, pray of his soul. Offer a mass in his name, just pray. It's okay to cry, it's okay to let it out.
Just know this young man was wonderful.
No one is ever ready for the cost of a funeral, especially for a loved one that we expected to be with us till we all had kids, grey hair and dentures. Forever in hearts Kevin.

I know I said I was opening my shop today! I apologize!! I honestly just had a very very long and exhausting day. I didn’t leave the office until 7:45PM! Then I rushed home, asked my husband to heat me up some pasta, swapped seats with him in the driveway, ate in the car while he drove us to Target, grocery shopped, came home put everything away, responded to some emails, showered, changed the sheets & answered more emails... Now as I lay in bed half asleep I write this blog.
Tomorrow is a whole new 24 hours!! Let’s see what I can do!
