I am a young man, 18 years old. I met Kevin when I was working at Waffle House, he came in one night after a long day and we just started talking about life. I learned about his cbd store, we instantly clicked. The first time I went to his store he remembered my name and greeted me like a friend. I feel his store paints a very good picture of the type of person he is. You first walk in and were greeted by his adorable dogs, hippy music and posters all around. He even had some guitars, which we talked about. He asked me to play him something and seemed genuinely interested in what I was showing him. After that day me and Kevin became close and I would often visit his store. I moved out of state a few months ago but even then, we talked often. I knew he was struggling and we would just talk about things. In the short amount of time I knew Kevin, I was sure he was a good soul. It’s rare to meet people like Kevin, someone so genuinely interested in making the world a better place and helping people. I’ve met alot of people in my short time I’ve been alive but I will never forget Kevin, he was as good of a friend and person as it gets.

I’m so very sorry to hear this news. I met Kevin in 2000 or so, and he quickly became a part of my group of very good friends. We hung out a lot in the years following and bonded around our love for music, particularly a little band called Phish. Even though I moved away from KC, we remained good friends. We met up at Phish’s Festival 8 in 2009 and it was like no time had passed. We had so much crazy fun. In recent years, we fell out of touch and I now regret that. I’m so sorry to all those that knew him and loved him.

To My Dearest Kevin,
I just found out of your passing and cannot believe that you are gone. You forever touched my life and will always be in my heart.
I still remember so vividly the exact night that you entered into my life, right before graduation, our senior year. I was the new girl
I was getting gas one night, when you and one of your friends pulled up beside my car, window down and introduced yourself. Smiling now just thinking about it.
We exchanged numbers and our relationship flourished. Best years of my life. Even though we went our separate ways, each growing up, getting married and having children…we messaged on Facebook a few times over the years. Our paths crossed again a few years ago. Although we only texted and spoke on the phone, our friendship grew much stronger, sharing our deepest secrets with one another and being able to truly relate in so many ways… I’m sorry that I didn’t get to say goodbye…
Play those drums and ‘Let your love light shine, Oh let it shine… My angels, my devils, my thorn in my pride’
Love Always

Dear Kevin,

We had a falling out and were both struggling at this thing called life. I’m so very sorry for my end of how things were left. I wish I could’ve been there for you. I promise to live a clean and healthy life and never squander each fleeting moment. In memory of you I’ll be planting a tree somewhere it will get a chance to grow. I’m sorry friend please forgive me. Sincerely
Colton Chapman
