Bury Kevin Waters

A relatively unknown hero passed away this morning in Independence, Missouri. Kevin Waters was stabbed and killed @1 a.m. August 6th 2019 (This will be updated with a news link once it is covered on the nightly news). Kevin was sadly less fortunate and underprivileged than most for his entire life. The majority of his time was spent giving to others, Kevin always put others before his own well-being. Even when he had no money or items of worth to give, he would always lend his time/effort for those around. Kevin was well known in the homeless community in KC for his kindness. I'm asking for others to please "pay it forward" for a man who spent his entite life doing the same for others. Being homeless was a rough life for Kevin (a combined factor of 15+ years) and it ultimately led to his death. Since Kevin was homeless he had no money or any sort of burial plans prepared/funded. This go-fund me was made by Linda D. Baker, who was homeless with Kevin for a number of years and is also his ex-fiance, and Joshua Baker, who thought of him as a second father. We have no money to pay for a cremation (he wanted to be put into a Folgers container and spread across his father's grave) and anything you can give is welcomed/appreciated. God Bless and please keep us in prayers.
