Thank you to our amazing community, family and friends!
My best friend... after a long days work and even when weeks may have passed.. we were always able to pick up where we left off... I could always count on a welcoming smile and greeted with open arms every time I rang that bell and the door would open... sit mama bear, let me fix you a drink and let's enjoy each other's company he would always say graciously... We would then SHARE stories on how the kids were doing and what was going on in each of their lives, laugh a lot, SHARE some more stories and LAUGH some more, and at that point I'd say we were laughing mostly at our own crazy selves... nobody ever was I looking forward to being proud of me more, than my papa bear... he was truly my inspiration... he never lost faith in me... ever, no matter how many stupid mistakes I made... PEAS and CARROTS is what we were... I was his Gürl... he was my guy. Plain and simple through it all, we understood each other... I miss my papa bear... I miss my only TRUE friend... my world here will never EVER be the same without him. that day... never came
And I haven't even read a fraction of these comments and contributions but I'm blown away at what a testament they are to who my brother was. I'm getting verbose I've been drinking in the hopes of being able to maybe sleep tonight . I've had a shitty couple of days. (understatement)And ironically the sun hasn't shined in Orlando since Kevin was killed . today we got to make the funeral and memorial arrangements those of you who've been there know what a pleasure that is. So I should stop and try to sleep but I'm so touched, I love you people who contributed and posted. I got through maybe 100 posts and I knew maybe two people and Kevin and I have been fairly close for 53 years , I'm blown away. You people have really eased my pain. In all my ramblings I haven't even mentioned the children that's probably because I've been thinking of nothing but them for the last two days. Kevin was an incredible father. He committed his entire being to those children and their well-being. And the proof is evident to all who know Gavin and Delaney they are truly incredible ,special ,tough ,courageous kids . Seven years ago they lost mom now they lost their rock. They Will never be whole again but between me and my wife and the incredible incredible support group out there, we are going to be good again with time. So once again my undying loves ,gratitude and humility for all your generosity please except my extreme thank you thank you. God bless you all
Gavin and Delaney..I have so many happy memories of out time at Busch Gardens the first time l met you....and how proud your Dad was to show you both off! My love and tonight's are with you both at this terrible time.... your Father loved you both so very much...don't ever forget that... I am always on the end of a phone to tell you funny stories about your Dad...and our time on the roller coasters!!!' .. Much love Gaynor X
I have been a freight vendor for Fiamma for over 20 years. I knew your father as well as all of the victims. Your father was a very gracious man and I am glad I had the opportunity to know him. God bless you both and you will see him again God bless, Melanie Kelly and LF Logistics
OK so I guess I should get with the program . I'm not too computer savvy. My sister, Kevin's twin set ,up a Facebook account for me about 10 years ago and I probably have 20 friends and post maybe twice a year. but I need to talk about my beautiful loving baby brother who was killed other day by some sick individual . I suppose one of the things I take solace in the fact that it wasn't some Islamic terrorist so I really don't have any hate in my heart for the perpetrator and because of my pain I have sympathy for everyone else who died . And we didn't have to watch him linger In hospital gowns and IV tubes like we watched both our parents ago, mom at 52 now Kevin at 53 but quickly and the pain didn't last too longintend for this post to be cathartic and maybe to add a personalized touch to this thread although Dania did a lovely job . While suffering from insomnia I just now sat down to read these posts . For a while now I've been watching people around me scrolling on their devices incredulously, so I'm taking a look. I'm experiencing such a range of emotions, you find your brothers been killed . your brother who never had an enemy , never met a stranger; you people posting on here who knew him know what I'm talking about. And you people who didn't know him I'm so so humbled and overwhelmed that people could be so generous and selfless . My first instinct is to try and write each and everyone of you individually and thank you for your thoughts and prayers and donations
I only met your dad a few months ago when I started as a temp for Fiamma. He is such a nice man and helped me with referral for a counselor for my grandson..he even texted me quit a few times when I was taking a few days off to give me more information to help me help my grandson. I'm so lucky I had the chance to meet your dad he is a very special man! Pattie Lynch
Gavin and Delaney; there's nothing that we all can say to comfort you in this time. But we all trying to be there for you because your father was really a good man with good intentions. Whenever I saw him around; he would always talk about you.he knew nothing best than being a father. Just as it is hard for you to accept it,so is it hard for us to accept it as well so please understand we do feel your lost because we too have lost a friend but most importantly you Dad was a great man so, go make him proud and raise your head up to the sky and let him know that you going to make your mark on this world real loud so you can hear. We love you guys The Letangs.
Gavin and Delaney, Your father was one of the best people that I had the pleasure or working with and knowing. His world was your world. My heart and prayers go out the the both of you. I loved your father like a brother. He will always be looking down on the both of you. I am praying for the both of you during these times.
Gavin and Delaney-you don't remember me but I remember you both. We spent an afternoon at the park in Altamonte with both your mom and dad. Had fun at Darla's pool with all of you. I knew your dad for many years and he holds a special place in my heart. I knew your mom for a short time but thought the world of her. You will remain in my prayers forever.
