Dear Family, Words cannot express the heartfelt sympathy we feel for all of you. It was a great pleasure to have known Kelvin and to grow up with him on Hart Avenue when he visited his grandparents The Bodifords. Kelvin was always very sweet and he always had a smile. Union Point will never be the same without him. If there is anything we can do for anyone of you please let us know. All of you are in our thoughts and prayers. Sincerely, Brian and Pam Vaughn
