|Let the memory of Kevin be with us forever|
"It's so very hard to bear the loss of one we loved so much, the pain we feel will one day ease and time will gradually help to heal as we reflect on special times. We always remember your laughter and kindness, love your wife Bernice, daughter Carmen, son Craig and family."
"Kevin, I think about you so often and have had many a dream of you. I miss all the wonderful times we shared together, and being the person you were, you left us all with our own special memories of you to hold close to our hearts. Your loving, caring and humourous ways will live on with us forever."
"There are still so many days I think of him - thankfully always with great gratitude. We were blessed with a wonderful, funny, compassionate, caring, humble brother in Kevin. There will always be spaces in our hearts to welcome our remembrances of the joy and laughter he brought into our lives. Thank you, God!!"
"Every time we get together as a family your name comes up. We miss your presence, your intensity, your levity, your caring, your funny stories!! You left a hole in the Green family that no one can fill! You left a sadness and a giggle! Unique Kevin Carl Green- we miss you!"
"6 Years Today, You may be gone from our sight, but you are never gone from our hearts, Lovingly remembered by Bruce, Kim and family."
"Happy Heavenly Birthday my brother. Always in our hearts,your sweet memories will live forever. May you fly with the angels till the day dawns and we are called home to be with all our loved ones that have gone before. Forever loved and miss you, till then. RIP xxx 19-4-16"
"What counts in life is not the mere fact that we have lived. It is what difference we have made to the lives of others. Kevin has left his mark not only in our family but in the lives of all who had contact with him. We were chosen and honoured to have shared a bloodline with this exceptional man. Times shared and laughs together will always be remembered. Rest in peace my darling brother until the day dawns and our sorrow is wiped away, memories of you live on in our lives. Our earthly home is a better place because you lived.."
"The journey of life is filled with moments of happiness and times of sadness. During the course of life we experience the passing on of Loved ones and throughout our lives we remember the times that were shared with them. My brother you have left so many treasured memories right until our last weekend together. It is now five years and to this date I still have moments where I cannot believe that you are gone. Unfortunately.... this is what we all have to pass through and for some of us it comes quickly and for others with much pain. For our family you were someone special and as we continue on this exciting journey filled with much mystery , understand that we too will someday join you. It is not until the loom is silent and the shuttle ceases to fly , shall God unroll the canvas and explain the reason why. Love Elvis & Debbie Until we meet again."
"Never forgotten - always loved - ever missed!!!
Stanley & Ursula"
"Kevin, We Treasure The Memories. Bruce, Kim and Family."
"Kevin, 5 years ago, God took you from us to be with him. Our fond memories of you will never be forgotten. We miss and love you. Your Wife Bernice and Family."
"When I looked up from my prostrate position you were there wondering about this intrusion into the family you had become with our parents; when I stood up on my feet I looked you in the eye, my unsteady feet struggling right away to catch up with you out there ahead of me. You walked me into life and you taught me so much about living: giving of yourself sacrificially; laughing through struggle and pain, mostly at yourself; reaching deep and when that was not enough, digging deeper still to give the best and the last of yourself so others could be whole; forgiving freely; sharing generously; never complaining; always ready to serve others in humility. Today you would have been 62 but you reached this life's boundary at 57. Too soon!! You're still there every day as I remember and live by the lessons you taught. Kevin, What a brother you were, what a leader as I began my journey into life, and, what a gift from God. I follow still in the important learnings from your legacy, and still I give thanks that you were my brother!!!"
"Happy birthday in heaven dear brother Kevin!! We are so glad you were lent to us for a while !"
"Words cannot explain just how precious and how special you were to me, your family and your friends.Not a single day passes without me sparing you a thought and I often think of the many conversations that we had. You will forever be Loved, Missed and never forgotten. A legend in your time."
"Dear Stanley and Ursula,
I only know Kevin through you. It seems that you carry on many of the gifts that you experienced in your relationship with him - the love and caring, and the humor. Blessings to you and your family as you remember."
"You are gone 4 years today. My heart still aches at the the happy memories of you and secret tears still flow. You still alive in my heart.. Family gatherings will never be the same although I'm reminded of all the amazing memories you left to console me. I will always miss and love you dearly. Thank you for being a special uncle."
"Still missed. The memories still linger and gratitude remains. Thank God for an older brother who was so easy to love."
"I would love to hear your funny stories and accents again! You made us all laugh so heartily, and enjoy our family gatherings.
Happy birthday in heaven! I imagine you are making the angels laugh."
"The years pass but the gratitude and the loss remain. The space Kevin occupied in our hearts still feels like a void, but the gratitude for his life, laughter and memories continues to grow. Thank you God for blessing us with Kevin. Always remembered!!!"
"We think and talk about you often. Time does not erase the memory!"
"Friendship is one of life's greatest gifts and Love is the centrepiece of thriving relationships and although I no longer have you in the flesh as my brother and friend, in your absence I still Love you as ever before. The person you were makes it impossible to forget the fun loving, gentle and humble son,husband,brother and friend."
"The sense of loss remains - but, also a deepened sense of gratitude - so grateful to God for a brother who brought so much life, laughter and lightness. God be praised for the gift of a brother who will always be missed but never forgotten. Thanks be to God!!!"
"3 years since you left and nothing prepares us for the moment in time when you lose someone you love, someone close to your heart... Life is only a temporary gift that's returned to sender when he wants us back. God knows when to pick his most beautiful flowers. We that remain let us love and appreciate each other for we never know when we'll be plucked. Thank God for Kevin's life and love"
"I have no doubt that we will meet in the sweet bye and bye on that beautiful shore where time will not be against us. Your style and your humilty will live with us forever and the beauty of life is that even though you are no longer in the flesh, we can at any moment capture you in the many ways that you managed to make a difference in each one of our lifes.Simply indelible! Elvis & Debbie"
"Even in death you are so close to me and I often think just how much more of a difference you would have made given the extra time. However I am reminded that it could not have been any different,the race is run,you have excelled in the time you had to do what you had too.Gods calling was at the precise time and you have left us to ponder on all the good that you left behind.Elvis & Debbie"
"As I continue lifes exciting journey,it is very often that you come to mind and I am reminded of the very special times that we spent together.You were unique and because of this we find it difficult to believe that you are no longer with us.God is our refuge & strength and we give him all glory for a brother,husband,father & son.Elvis,Debbie,Lisa,Ryan,Kyle & Mom"
"Your memories will last in me beyond forever, your rested heart beats through the countless people that have been given a second chance as a direct result of your fine example, hard work, generosity and inspiring life. Until the day we meet again, you will always be remembered with gratitude and love. Miss you always my darling brother."
"Today you would have turned sixty - memorable milestone - but the race ended early for you - too early for. There are still so many days when you seem so alive in our memories - the laughter recalled, the stories remembered, the love relived. We miss you - always will and because of that we will always be grateful for having you as brother!!"
"You taught me how to love you You didn't teach me to let you go. Missing you. Your loving Mother"
"Still remembered and still missed so much."
"We miss your laughter and how you made us laugh.
We miss you mopping up the floor as we were still working in the kitchen.
When we scrape the bones out of the plates we talk about you ~ chewing them, collecting them for your. dogs.
We miss your teasing, and your intense seriousness about certain things. I thank God I knew you, brother."
"59 years ago today a boy was born. That boy became my older brother, Kevin. As we grew together, so did my love and appreciation of him. I looked for the day when we could spend time together recalling the memories of bygone years that would make our hearts glad. Now he's gone, the memories, however, live on. I will cherish them in my heart - giving thanks for my brother, his love & life."
"Kevin, I will always hold you in my heart. Mummy."
"My dear brother Kevin whilst the circumstances of life are a mix of ups and downs, happiness and sadness, losing you is something that I so often think of and it still is hard to believe that you are no longer with us.Only God truely understands our heartaches, our pain and struggle but we hold onto all the wonderful memories we have of you which is indelible. Elvis,Deb,Lisa,Ryan,Kyle,Mom"
"You would have been celebrating your 59th birthday here with us today. Some say it get's easier as time moves on but my dear brother I miss you more each and every day. May you celebrate today with the angels in heaven. Love and miss you always. Treasured memories live in my heart forever!!"
