  28. Julia Williams says:

    Sally, Charlie enjoyed knowing you and Kevin and their working together in the marine surveying business was time well spent in the Southern Marine building. They sure had some stories to tell coming from that setting. Charlie thought a lot of Kevin and always spoke well of him. I’m sorry that I was unable to make it to the visitation this morning and want you to know how sorry I am for your family’s loss. The last time that we four saw each other was in line at the 9/11 Memorial Museum. That was 2017. Kevin had the best laugh and saw the humor in everyday life which made him such a likeable person. May he be carried by angels to the best seat in the house.
