Tomorrow we say goodbye to a great man.
My Uncle Kev had so much energy and a real passion for life. He was a character like no other. He always had a story to share about his geegees or his travels abroad. He always told his stories with such vigor that his face would become red and he would run out of breath.
When I was little I used to ring my uncle Kev up and ask him to take me on a long bike ride. We would cycle for miles and miles every weekend and he never said no or complained.
Locko Park on Boxing day is my oldest memory of spending time with Uncle Kev. The annual gatherings were always so exciting. I loved the big open fire in his cavernous living room and I was always fascinated with uncle Kevs white Christmas tree. The stables were a great place at that time of year. the warmth and the smell is something I can still remember strongly. Uncle Kev used to give the horses some food in a bag that was attached to the horses head... I remember always thinking that the horses wouldn't be able to breath.
Although I didn't see as much of Kev as I got older I have always had a real soft spot for the uncle who was so energetic, fun and giving with his time. you will always have a special place in my heart. Love you... sleep tight.
In loving memory of the late Kevin Shaun Frawley who sadly passed away on 4th August 2014 aged 72 years
Beloved son of the late Dorothy and Thomas, borther of John, Barry, Michael, Carol, Ken and the late Denis.
A much loved brother- in -law and uncle, who will be sadly missed by all of his family and friends.
