Eileen and Millie say Kevin's death feels surreal

8 of 17
Millie says Kevin's wife and three children are still in a state of shock. "The real tragedy here is, I mean, our hearts are broken, but his children are going to be without their father for the rest of their lives. And they're young children," Millie says. "He loved his kids with a passion, and I know it sounds silly, but his oldest is only in the eighth grade, but he was already talking to them about where they would go to college and what they would do, and now what do we do?"

Kevin's body has not yet been released to the family, and Millie says the experience still feels unreal. "I'm not going to believe it until I see him, and I don't know when I'll see him," she says.

Kevin's sister Eileen says the situation is surreal. "You can't see Kevin, there's no word in terms of when we get to see Kevin. We can't really make arrangements, so it's like a waiting game when you know you've lost somebody but you can't sort of move forward."
