    Dear Liz, it is with great sadness that we heard about Kevin’s passing. It is difficult to find the words to express our sympathy as we know there are no “right” words that will make you feel better. Our hope is that eventually you will take comfort in all the great memories you and Kevin shared and that they will be in your heart forever. We will always remember Kevin for his passion for life and living it to the fullest. Please know that you are in our thoughts and if there is anything we can do for you out at Spur Valley, let us know.
