Celebrating Kevin's Life and Legacy

It is with a heavy heart I am writing this,  as some may already know, Kevin Bendle has passed away this March 09th 2018.  Kevin was not alone, as his long time love Kenda was at his side every step of the way, holding his hand and taking in every last moment they had together.  Her last words hearing was of his love for her, and as we have all heard Kevin say time after time, "Love you, Sweetie".  

Born on January 29th 1962 , father to Sean Bendle, step father to Merna Majeed and Rita Majeed and loving partner to Kenda AlrBaa,  Brother to Jackie Preston, Kim Bendle and Trevor Bendle. Kevin has left behind many wonderful memories that we will all look back on in times of grief to remember just how much fun it was to be his friend and family.  With his love for entertaining a room, telling "inappropriate" jokes, outdoors and anything that goes fast we will all have many stories to tell at his memorial and memories to keep close.

 I had the great pleasure of meeting Kevin 15 years ago at a party with Kenda and we hit it off immediately with his fun loving view of life, how he made everyone in the room feel welcome and comfortable and his infectious smile I know myself I will miss him greatly. He is now with his late mother looking down at us waiting to once again party with us all!

For anyone who knew Kevin knows he would want us to celebrate his life, the stories we have of him and to appreciate the time we all are granted on this earth not to wallow in his death but come together and remember the good times.  But as many of you may know this time can be increasingly stressful for bereaved families and the financial obligation to give a loved one the send off they deserve should be the last thing on their minds at this time.  So to help Kevin one last time and to ease the added stress to the family he has left behind I am asking everyone please consider making a donation.  Funds raised will help go to the cost of a service in Kevin's honour, for a reception for family and friends and to the family to help with added expenses.  I am also asking for people to join our facebook page and leave a memory you have of Kevin, this is also where we will be making updates to the Memorial. 
 
We love you Kevin, thank you for bringing joy to our lives and The Perry household will be lighting a candle to light your way.

Sincerely, 
Rita Perry and Family
