    Diane, I’m so very sorry. I can’t imagine how sad you are. My condolences are with you and your family. I will always have an empty spot in my heart where Sal was, it never goes away. But knowing how many loved him, like how many loved Kevin – we all were fortunate to have him as long as we did. Keep his special antics and sayings alive in your day to day life. He will never be forgotten.
    Sending love.

    My deepest sympathy to you. It is heart-warming to know that we can pour out our feelings to God who promises to comfort our hearts. (2 Thessalonians 2:16, 17) May you find hope and peace through God’s promise of resurrection. (John 5:28, 29)

    Diane & family, my heart broke when I heard the news of Kevin’s passing. There are no words to explain my sorrow. Hopefully you will find comfort with your family and friends in sharing memories of Kevin’s smile, laughter and life. Saab sends his sympathies as well. Kevin will be with us always.
    Peace & love,
    Ronnie

    Sympathies to you. The Andermans and Ostmans go way back. Kevin helped his dad built our home in 1968, and also the Leo Anderman cabin on Knife Lake. Also a connection with the Olsons — all were involved in People’s National Bank. Hard to loose someone so young. “He is only away in your thoughts and your heart, you are always together, never apart. In your sorrow, remember he’s only away, though he may not be with you – the memories stay. And in time, when the hurt isn’t too much to bear, whenever you look in your heart, he will be there,”

    We are thinking of you in this time of sorrow.
