  12. I tried to tell Kevin in the beginning that he had the wrong people around him.They were just “hanger-on” for his attention.

  13. Kevin, when I heard of the devastating tornado in Mayfield, I remembered you were from there. I listened to your AGT audition several times. I first heard after my husband of 45 years died suddenly, and boy, did it ever mean a lot. “If tomorrow never comes, and she had to do without me,” Wow! Would the love he showed me last? I posted this on my FB page and said, “Yes, it would!” And it’s still lasting! It helped that he wrote me lots of notes, which I kept. I have God, too. His love is an everlasting love. ❤️❤️
