A tribute to the late Kerry VonErich
-Kerry Gene Adkisson-
February 3, 1960- February 18, 1993
~By Connie~

An unfamiliar rock beat floats through the television speakers. Two pairs of young, curious eyes focus on the screen. A whirlwind of curly brown hair and white fringes explode from behind the fans on the TV screen. "That's Kerry Von Erich!!" Jenny cries increduously. "Kerry who?" I'm clueless. I have NO idea who this is. "Kerry Von Erich... Chris's big brother,"
Chris's big brother with his dreamy eyes and wide smile has a permenant place in my heart. At the age of 14 the only thing I cared about was long hair, sexy eyes and a nice posterior end. I was a typical teen age girl... I can admit it.
Adolescence took its toll and I grew up. I also got away from wrestling and Kerry. Almost 9 years later at the age of 22 I still appreciate a nice body but I see more in Kerry.
I see a man who loved his children.
I see a man who longed to be on top and please his father.
I see a man who left screaming girls with tears in their eyes everywhere he went.
I see a man who never realized how great he really was.
I see a man who took a piece of the wrestling world with him on February 18, 1993.
I see a man who has taught me to laugh at myself and enjoy life to the fullest because you don't get a second chance.
I can't explain how or why the pictures and video clips have touched me the way they do. Kerry touched a lot of people in a lot of different ways when he was a live. I go in to chat and listen to all the stories about Kerry and read what other people have to say about him and I find it absolutely amazing the effect he still has almost 7 years after the world lost another hero.
