Condolences

I can't believe I'm so seeing this. I worked with Kevin at the Rittman Headstart. He was such a sweet young man & we all knew how much he lived his girls!! So sorry Amber, can't even imagine what you're going through.

So sorry for your loss. I worked with Kevin and he was a great worker and an even more outstanding individual. His positive attitude and kindness was truly great. You will be in my prayers.

My heart goes out to all the Graves' family, but to Michelle I send hugs and love. Loosing a child is so painful and I am wishing her my understand and hope some how each day will bring much support!

Condolences from my family and I. When I had a chance to talk to Kevin he was always happy and was nice enough to laugh at my all of my stupid comments.

We would like to send our prayers and condolences to The Graves' family, Amber and his girls.
No words can make your broken hearts feel better.
May God comfort you and be your strength during this difficult time.
Michelle, we totally understand the pain you are going through right now. I hope you can find a way to understand. Always remember, it's ok to not be ok somedays.
Cherish the memories you have had with Kevin. Celebrate him and keep his memory alive.
Hugs and love from Our family to yours.

At a time when words are hard to find but love and care are deeply felt. My thought and prayers are with Bridges, Michell, Amber, and daughters Amarrah, Brooklyn, Kyrah; brothers Jonathan and Christopher, and to all the loved ones he left behind. As Kevin’s great-aunt Bee, I must say that Kevin has left many pleasant memories. He was the oldest grandson of my late sister, Mary Joyce, and the bond they had between each other was awesome. I have been looking through my photo album and saw a happy baby boy who grew up to be a caring, hard-working, honest and loving man. How blessed we are to have had him in our mist. I regret I could not make it to his funeral but I share deeply in grieving of our beloved Kevin. Kevin died in a full tide of a career which gave great promise of a future for his family. His absence will truly be missed, but the lives he touched, hopefully, will lead others to look in the mirror and emulate many of the examples he set. I will always remember how he was family oriented, loved the Lord, well disciplined, obedient, respectful, and had compassion for the elderly. I feel a great loss in his passing. May God bless you in this time of sorrow.

Our thoughts & Prayers are with the family, Especially his Daughters and Luk family
