Kevin lives with us. I first met him some seven or more years ago in Parma, Italy when he was but a kid hanging around the church. I could recognize early that this was a boy with a future and watched him grow into a leader and man of God. I had the idea to try to help him some how. He had no father in his life so I took him under wing and brought him to America with the vision of seeing what could be done with God’s help. Neither Kevin nor I had any money to throw around but people got behind him and with a generous scholarship from Winthrop University in Rock Hill, South Carolina and the help of church friends Kevin paid for his first year and ended the first semester with a 3.6 average. It is really amazing how he fits right in with our family and Jeanne in particular likes his compliments on her cooking and baking. He is smart enough to know that this will keep it coming.
