Community thank you

Community thank you

The family of Sgt. Kevin White would like to express our deepest gratitude to all those who have supported us and honored Kevin’s service and sacrifice for our country.

Westfield and surrounding communities - you have overwhelmed us with your patriotism, cards, flowers, memorial donations and delicious food. The number of people that welcomed Kevin home was incredible. The coordination and cooperation necessary to have the processional, visitation, and funeral service take place was tremendous, and it all went very smoothly. To all the fire departments, law enforcement agencies, current military members, Patriot Guard riders, veterans groups and Westfield community and school leaders that were involved, we are deeply grateful for all your hard work.

A special thank you goes to the Westfield VFW for hosting the luncheon after the funeral service. We would also like to give a public thank you to the First Baptist Church of Westfield, Pastor Thayne Bodenmiller, Scott Mason, and SFC Rose Werner who made everything as easy as possible on our family. We cannot imagine going through this dark valley without the love, care, and prayers we received from everyone. We will always be proud of Kevin and will miss him deeply until we meet him again in Jesus’ kingdom.

Paul, Patti, David and Stephen White,
