Sending big love and strength to Kelvin's family at this time from the iSEE CHURCH North Worship Team. Joel is a huge blessing to our church community and that is a testament to the type of man Kelvin was I'm sure. xxx

Words cant describe the sorrow in my heart. You definitely were a man of your time. I hope my boys grow up to be as admirable as you were, in my eyes. You never said much, a man of few words, a cheeky grin, always willing to do whatever needed to be done and the patience of a saint.
I'll forever wish i was able to make it in time to say goodbye.
You always seemed so intriguing growing up, so smart , as you tinkered away in your shed making and fixing, only ever taking a much deserved rest on Sunday mornings as we all went off to church with nanny.
I love you pop x
It eases my heart to know the pain can now finally stop , although i know you'll miss us as much as we all miss you already.
Another star to look to in the sky, keep Master Steele baby in line and teach him a thing or two x
Infinate hugs x

Hey Kelvin!
Thank you so much for welcoming me into your home and letting me squeeze into your already huge family! You helped raise incredible children and grandchildren that I am lucky to call my best friends!
You put up a strong fight right until the very end and we are all so proud of you!
Hope you like it up there and are catching all the fish you could ever dream of!

Dad lost his battle with cancer this week. He will be dearly missed by his loving family. With a heavy heart I wish him peace and eternal happiness. I am so thankful to have had such a wonderful dad. It was my honour to have been there the moment he embarked on his journey to the undiscovered country. I love you dad. Graeme xx
