Ya know, losing Kevin hit me pretty hard, and I ponder this quite a bit. In the grand scheme of things I knew him very little, much like my friendship with a lot of my paintball buddies. As much time as it feels like I spent with that bastard, I could probably count all the times on my hands and feet. So why and how did he become close enough that I feel like ther's a hole in my life where he used to be?
Its simple I guess. Paintball is my escape. its the time in my life when nothing else matters, I've cleared the schedule, and its all about stress releif and fun and not worrying about work until Monday. this was especially true for EMR and other "destination" games where'd I'd see Kevin along with all you other sob's.
Essentially, your friendships to me represent pretty much nothing but good times. When I think of Kevin I have very specific memories of silliness in scenario games, shenanigans at the bunk house, and smoking that last butt on the deck before we passed out. Arguments about politics, releigion, whatever, they didn't matter because they were all part of the fun and nobody took them seriously. They ended with a smile and drink.
SO anyway, thanks Kevin for the good times brother ,I will never forget them. And that goes to the rest of you who've put up with me at the bunkhouse and other games over the years, and even to those of you who I haven't met but banter with me back and forth here over **** that just really doesn't matter, no matter how seriously we take it.
Its all just a positive part of my life that has helped me melt the negativity away for a lot of years.
Kevin, I'll see you at the Bunkhouse of the Beyond, we'll smoke that last butt and turn out the lights and get some rest. Until then I will miss you, because there is no way to forget those days. The rest of you, I will see you at the field again, if all goes the way it should. Here's hoping it does.
Sorry for the wall of text, feeling a little nostalgic today. As I'm wont to do I'm gonna throw out some song lyrics:

"When my times up, I'll come over, say what's up, punch your shoulder. 'Cause I love you, Always"
Highly Suspect
"For Billy"

The day I tried to live
I wallowed in the blood and mud with All the other pigs
Singing One more time around
Might do it
One more time around
Might make it

RIP Mr. Cornell. thank you.

I've never missed someone I argued with as much as I miss Kevin.

A good guy. A really good guy.

He's probably looking down on me right now and thinking: "you're wrong about everything MAr, except your kids"

He was the first to ask after Owen.

Miss ya bud.
