Although he was
living the American Dream and loved America,
he never forgot his roots, a cockney lad
made good. I know he missed
his football so much that when a match was
on TV he would ring and say "put the
phone near the TV mum, so I can listen to
the match". What I miss most now is
his long weekly telephone calls and they
were long, keeping me up to date on his life
and wanting to know about mine.
two wonderful boys, they were nearly seven
at his death and I feel so much for their
loss, he was a great dad and they idolised
him. I was out there looking after them
for 4 weeks, 6 weeks before September 11th
and I noticed how much he was involved in
their lives. I always had to take the latest
Everton Kit over for them, as Kev was an
Everton Supporter. The boys were also at
the stage where they tried to mimic his English
Accent and Kev thought that was hilarious.
My one consolation is that
although we were miles apart my son made
sure I was always to be part of his family
and he never let me forget that. He even
had special quarters (living area) for me
in his home and always wanting me to visit.
All my memories, I will cherish forever.
Especially the 7 years I had with his boys
as I have not seen them since September 11th.
