  • Don Oconnell Being a few years behind you, I do not recall a lot of our youth together in Woodridge except your name and that you had many friends. I have gotten to know you these last 4 months and will forever remain happy for connecting with you for the Kane County Cougars game, pre game Concert and fireworks that followed. I feel I know you 30 years already and miss the 5+ tags on FB every day, bringing me into conversations and new friends that are some of the finest friends and people I know. You were an extremely loving father to both, so proud and excited for their futures. Until we meet again Kevin may you rest in piece while the good lord holds and protects your family and gives your beautiful daughter the strength to continue her education and continue to thrive. I love you just like a brother Kevin... never Good bye - till we meet agtain. Don
