My deepest condolences to you all ! I have so many fond memories it's hard to share just one.. I was the troubled girl down the street growing up and best friends with Chris when your whole family took me in and alot of days it's the only time I felt " family " in my life... Kelvin and his chuckle and that humourous personality was contagious ! He was an amazing man with a phenomenal family... He is with Brenda now and you know she had her arms wide open waiting to embrace her hubby again please take comfort in that feeling during this difficult time... Love , Chaz ♡
