    Dear Bartlett Family, My two oldest children, Matthew and Megan Clow, had Kevin as their second grade teacher at Harris School in Bakersfield, CA. I remember him as a kind and dedicated educator. Megan had Kevin the year he began having some difficulties and moved away. We moved to Lynden in 1995. I wish I had known he was in this area; I would have made an effort to contact him. When I saw his obituary in the Bellingham Herald, I was so sorry to hear of his difficulties and death. Please accept our entire family’s condolences for your deep loss.
