Time moves on....other people come into our lives - yet, the gap remains. Where you stood in our hearts and lives is now filled with longing, yearning to fill that space with your presence we so loved. Your presence remains through the memories we made together. For those we rejoice and are full of thanks that you live on and always will while we’re yet alive.

Kevin, Memories of you will never fade away. Love Bruce, Kim and family.

The night before you were called, I arrived home late from Richards Bay and was unable to erect the Stainless Steel Flag Pole in my front garden. However that evening I proudly displayed this on my front porch in anticipation of the 2010 World Cup that was commencing the next day 10th June 2010. At around 2-35am the next morning, I was awoken by the noise of the flag-pole falling and went out to investigate thinking how on earth could the dogs have pulled this over. As I opened my front door there was not a soul in sight but only a wind that had come up. I picked up the Flag Pole and went back inside. As I was about to get back into bed, I suddenly became ill and had to use the toilet. After that episode I got back into bed and about five minutes later, the phone rang. Getting a phone call in the early hours of the morning very seldom is the bearer of good news. However when the voice on the other end said that you has passed away, I immediately went into a state of absolute shock and when Debbie asked who died and I mentioned you, she could also not imagine that you were gone and kept on saying that I was mistaken. For five minutes after that I covered my entire body almost as if I could momentarily shut the world out of my life. I pondered on what had just happened and am sure that it was you who came to say a last goodbye, with the flag pole falling, the sudden gust of wind and me feeling sick the way I did. I then had the unpleasant task of waking Mom to break this traumatic news to her. I phoned Bernice to tell her that I wanted to see you before they took you away. Nolan made his way to our home and drove us to Pietermaritzburg. I slept the entire journey and only awoke when we arrived at your home to be greeted by the mortuary van that was there to collect your lifeless body. I made my way to your bedroom and when I touched you, your body was still warm and you looked as though you were only sleeping. I spent a few minutes with you in the hope that by some miracle you would open your eyes and speak to me. Just two weeks before this day you spent the weekend with us in Durban and we had a good time and even did some fishing where it reminded me of our childhood days at the dam. When you left that Monday morning I was pleased that we spent quality time together and we had even spoken about future plans. Little did I realize on that Monday morning that it would be the very last time that I would see you in this life. When we carried you out of your home and into the waiting vehicle that was taking you to the mortuary, I prayed that God would have mercy on your soul. The days leading up to the funeral were heartbreaking and every time that I thought about you, I shed a silent tear. The day of your funeral arrived and there again, in life you were handsome and in death you looked more handsome almost as though you could open your eyes and be a part of this life again. Unfortunately the time had come for you to depart and take up your heavenly place. If there is anything that is expected of us in the life, it is to make a difference and this my dear brother you did. I can only smile when I think about how funny you could be and how you could have a crowded house in stitches of laughter with what you said and just how you said it. You were gifted with humour and your personality was one of good spirit. I have no doubt that there are many people whom you interacted with in life, that still think about you and what I good person you were. I so often think about you and have had many a good dream about you. As much as we would love to have you back, we have come to the realization that in this life there is a journey to be followed and once completed, there is no turning back. You have travelled your journey and you have run your race vigourously always focusing on the ultimate goal and mark. I have no doubt that you were greeted with the words""" Well Done thy Good and Faithful servant, enter into my Kingdom. You have left a very big void in the lives of so many people including myself but we are consoled by the fact of having a mind that has photographed you in so many different ways during your life, and now we have the pleasure of replaying these images at any given time. The mind is so powerful and these images are indelible, this in itself is incredible. We miss you my brother and one day will see you in the sweet bye and bye. Your baby brother "Loots' the nickname you gave me.

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!!

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..
Posted by Elvis Louis Green on 10th June 2015
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.

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!!!

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.
Posted by Stanley Green on 19th April 2014
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!!!

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

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
Posted by Elvis Louis Green on 19th April 2013
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

Until the day we meet again, you will always be remembered with gratitude and love. Miss you always my darling brother.
Posted by Stanley Green on 19th April 2013
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!!

Still remembered and still missed so much.
Posted by Ursula Green on 19th April 2012
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.
Posted by Jill Dunnett on 19th April 2012
Kevin, I will always hold you in my heart. Mummy.
