    To Chris and the Gilfoyle family;
    With a heavy heart I send my sincerest condolences. Kevin and I worked together for 25 years and he was the very best person that I had the pleasure of knowing let alone working with. They say no one is irreplaceable but Kevin was the exception to that rule. Very few people have a job that they look forward to going to everyday but I did because of the good men that I work with. Words can’t express how much that I will miss Kevin every single day but I will cherish the great memories and the million laughs that we had. Rest in piece my good friend.
    Many Hugs & Prayers to a wonderful family.
    Bill & Donna Jamison

    Dear Chris,
    It’s been many years since I’ve seen you and Kevin, but when I heard, I remembered back to high school days at Linesville and Conneaut Lake. I never knew you two together — that’s how long it’s been — but I remember you and Kevin as very special people. I have no doubt you became a very special couple and family. I’m so very sorry for your loss. May you feel God’s loving presence and know others hold you in their thoughts and prayers during this time.
    Sincerely,
    Tasha (Corey) Fink
