Kevin's Story

Kevin was a smart funny kid with ideas. And one day he wanted me to make him a giant mitten so little by little over years I knitted him a giant mitten. Kevin grew up to be a fine young man helpful and considerate of others. He volunteered in helping the homeless and helping troubled teens. This he did quietly and even his family knew little if anything about it until after his death in the back seat of a car that had a head on collision with a van when he was 25 years old.

He was a lot more too. He wrote poetry, wanted to work in the music industry after finding out he didn’t have what it took to have his own band. He loved life and his friends.

Hi Folks,

I have to eat my words. There was box in the mailbox waiting for me from a family friend for Kevin's Mittens with seven pair inside.

Sorry I spouted off the other day. I should have known that help was coming.

Thank you all for your good thoughts and mittens too.

Kevin's Mom
