On May 26, 2023, This is My Silver Lining lost a dear friend. 
Kevin Sousa lost his battle with skin cancer, which had suddenly and aggressively metastasized to his brain.  He passed away in his beloved Hermosa Beach, California with his wife Patti by his side.  
Kevin was a kind soul with an unshakeable effervescence for life.  By day, he worked as a
psychotherapist, counselor and mentor, taking the hard-fought battles and lessons he learned from his own journey through substance addiction to help others.  Kevin served as the Program and Clinical Director for the Jimmy Miller Memorial Foundation, a non-profit organization that is at the forefront of providing those suffering from mental and physical illness, injury and disabilities with life-changing Ocean Therapy.  By night, Kevin delighted crowded audiences as a singer, songwriter and guitarist in his eponymously named rock n roll band.  
When Kathleen and I first spoke to Kevin, we were intrigued to learn more about ocean
therapy.  Thanks to his generosity of spirit and time, we came away from the conversation
having learned so much more.  
We send our deepest condolences to Kevin’s wife Patti, his friends and colleagues at the
Jimmy Miller Memorial Foundation, and all those who loved and admired him.  
You can find more information on Kevin’s legacy and the incredible work of the Jimmy Miller
Memorial Foundation in the shownotes and on our website.
We hope you’ll have a listen to this replay of TIMSL episode 2 as we remember Kevin. 

Time is short, stop pining for the perfect wave, enjoy the wave you’re on.
