Chaminade Family Personal Notes
Chuck Mansfield ’62 and his wife, Mame, have co-authored a new book. Kevin Courageous: A Journey of Faith, Hope and Love is the brainchild of the authors, who are Kevin’s paternal grandparents. They conceived of writing such a work in the wake of the tragic illness that befell their second grandson, Kevin Sean Mansfield, on February 23, 2018. One week after being stricken, Kevin, with his mother by his side and still in his hospital bed, opened his eyes and emerged from a coma. He could not yet speak or stand or walk or take care of any of his personal needs. Quite miraculously, Kevin resisted death and his family gives thanks to the Lord for sparing him and giving him renewed life.
