"Dearest Kerm I love you. And I?m truly sorry I couldn?t be with your family and friends but because of this Covid stuff. But I know you?re in heaven and if we could have a glimpse of what you?re seeing and experiencing right now I?m sure will be less sad. For most of us life goes way faster than we expect. What a great great man Kermit was and still is. "

"My Grandfather Kerm Watson was a great man. He always showed all of his grandchildren love and support. My best memories as a child were at his house with my cousins Jared and Stiles. He will always be remembered. Love you Poppop!"

"My godfather Kerm Watson was the sweetest man I have ever known. As a child he would always make us laugh with his Donald Duck impressions. RIP uncle Kerm you will surely be missed by all who knew and loved you. "
