You have no idea who I am, but I work with your Mom and she has been a wonderful mentor for my son who attended Westminster. I am so grateful you finally have a diagnosis. The worst thing to deal with is the unknown. Now you can look forward to treatment and a possible cure. You have been a very strong young man and have endured so much more in your young life than many adults. I admire your strength! Keep your faith strong, draw on your friends and family and please know there are so many people out here praying for you. Tell your Mom and Dad they have support in any way they need it. Blessings and here is to a quick recovery in the near future.

It’s Blake Wiehe. When I first heard about your illness I was shocked to hear that something as nasty as that could happen to a healthy, hard-working, Park City lifestyle kid like you, but I know you’re strong and can work through anything. The whole school cares about you and everyone is interested to hear the latest update. I know they feel the same way when I say that you are strong and can overcome anything. So before you know it, you’ll be back up on the mountain skiing with some buddies. Get well soon (and I know you will.)

Your mom told me how your health was doing, and I wanted to send you a note to tell you that I’m thinking about you. I hope, at least, that you’re in less pain and that you’re able to enjoy your summer a little bit. I told Alec to keep an eye on you and to make some silly movies with you. He said he would, so hold him to it! He can get a little crazy, that kid. Have you seen Grady this summer? He missed you when you missed class so much. What a great friend.
I got to see Phillip and your dad last week, and they told us all about the time your dad fooled you with the fake treasure map. That was so funny. My husband and I are going to plan to do that soon with our kids–what a great way to fill a rainy afternoon.
Seattle is absolutely beautiful, and so so green. Of course, you know that. I think I’ll really like it here, but I have a big hole in my heart for all the students I left behind. I’m really going to miss you guys.
I’m glad I can check in on your progress through this website. I’ll keep my fingers crossed for you.

Hi Kev, How many days until your Baja vacation? Bet you all are looking forward to a little surf time. In the meantime, it’s fun to watch the Olympics.
Craig and Lo were here this weekend for a memorial service. It was a quick trip–their school has started. The girls couldn’t come because their HS production of Rent was this weekend and they were in the play, some of the homeless crew. They had a lot of fun putting their costumes together. They went to the thrift shop and bought the rattiest , most mismatched clothes they could find.
Love you all, think and pray for you everyday. We’ll be with you all whenever we can be useful. Stay strong. Papa and Grammie

Hello, Kevin. First of all, we wish you well with your surgery. It seems the expert has been found and he feels confident that he can fix you up. That is a great combination. You don’t know us, but we are friends of your grandparents (Grandma Bev and Grandpa Reg). We met them about 50 years ago. She and I played bridge together, then we got Dave and Reg together. They took a scuba diving course at the Y together, Reg got Dave a job where he worked-Therma-Fax, and then we 4 became fast friends. Actually, it turned out to be 11 friends. We had many times together in those early years. I took care of your mom and her siblings sometimes when Grandma Bev taught school. The 2 families owned a boat together and we had many fun times at Berlin Lake in OH. One time, the men and Grandma Bev went off to work, and I stayed behind with the kids (7 pre-schoolers in a little tent) and it rained all day! So I taught them how to play rummy. And they learned! Even learned how to hold cards. If one had to go to the cement block out-house, all went. We had laughs! (I hope your mom, Kevin, Scott and Laurie, if they remember, remember fun. I do.) We 4, as parents, had many hard, and harder, times. And you have too! But things have a way of getting better, and better. And that is our hope for you. And you have every right to expect that. We are thinking of you, as are many others. Hang in there. It WILL get better, and better. Dave and Joan Davenport Hello to Vicky, Kevin, Scott, and Laurie and their families.
Dave and Joan Davenport

I just found out about your site on CaringBridge this morning. It’s good to know that I can follow your progress and stay in touch. I’m sure you know that there are many many people who care about you. I feel fortunate to have had you as a student since you are a remarkable kid with great character.
I look forward to seeing you soon.

Hi Kevin and Whiting Family-
I am so pleased to hear your appointment last week went well. We had no idea you were even sick Kevin. I guess we are out of the loop a bit. This is a super website, especially for those of us living in different states. Arizona is very hot right now. Ryan(15) and Jeff(14) started school this week so they are back to the grind of getting up and heading out early. They are very envious of you all living in the mountains.
We are planning to come and ski on your mountain this year(Dec 27ish). Looking forward to catching up.
Kevin, I hope that you feel better with each day. It sounds like you have great Doctors in your corner, as well as tons of friends and wonderful family! I will keep an eye on your website. If you feel like getting some warm sun, feel free to come and visit us in sunny AZ. We have plenty of room!
Say “Hi” to your family. I’ll keep you in my prayers.
Terri and the Milling Gang (your 2nd cousins, I think :))
