In Memory of Kevan

 

Kevan memorial blog 8-11-15

August 11, 1985 was a long time ago….I realize that…..in fact, a few friends have reminded me of that fact.

But the lives of our entire family changed that day….and forever.

Our handsome, wonderful, Christian son, Kevan, went home to the Lord in heaven on that day.

David and I want to recognize such a day with this tribute to Kevan.

“There’s a land that is fairer than day,

And by faith we can see it afar;

For the Father waits over the way

To prepare us a dwelling place there.

In the sweet by and by,

We shall meet on that beautiful shore;

In the sweet by and by,

We shall meet on that beautiful shore.”

(Written by Sanford F. Bennett)

  1. A beautiful and touching remembrance of an irreplaceable young man..Oh, what a day it’ll be when we all step onto that golden shore, to see our loved ones again, whole and perfect! Thank you for being an inspiration to us and for sharing. God bless you and David. 🙂

  2. What a grand looking young man! Sending my love to & prayers for both you and David on this anniversary. “We shall meet on that beautiful shore” for sure!!

  3. What a beautiful tribute. I definitely understand ‘guarding your thoughts’. I understand losing a husband after 60 years, but cannot fathom what it would be like to lose one of my children. Thoughts and prayers with you as you remember and celebrate his life. Thank you for sharing, dear friends.

  4. My heart hurts for both of you and Kevan’s siblings. I can’t believe it has been thirty years. I’m sure that in ways it must seem like yesterday. For those left behind, days must crawl at times. We have wonderful comfort knowing that we will meet again. My mother kept my father alive for me with stories about him. (He was killed in an Air Force plane crash when I was 10 months old.) I would love to read more stories about Kevan. Memories are sweet. Praise God for His mercy.

  5. I cannot imagine how that day changed all of you. As David said, dwelling is not good but I believe remembering and celebrating is a very good thing. I am happy to read about Kevan each year on this date and any other day you need to do that.
