  1. Well where do I begin. Kev Shaw and I were best friends from the age of 16 and to say it was really a symbiotic relationship in so many ways, it is hard to describe. Great jokes, ability to discuss not only our personal opinions but what was going on in the would in general. I cannot express my loss in words how much this very unique person, my brother if you will meant, and still means to me, until my dying day.
    I remain a very fortunate person to have known Kevin Ernest Shaw, not only that but as my best friend for 41+ years.
    God bless you Kev. Norm Got.
