Kenny will be greatly missed by everyone he touched. He was one of the kindest people I have met, always willing to lend a helping hand. This will be remembered by everyone on the block. There will always be part of Kenny at each of our houses. This is something we all will be able to cherish from this time on.

Sue, Joni and family, Please know that you are loved and prayers are being said for all of you. There really isn’t much that can be said right now that can give you much comfort. Experience has taught me that the pain don’t really go away, you just learn to handle it better. I always thought the world of Kenny. He was a very special person. My love to you all. Aunt Rita

I remember a fishing trip to Canada in 1970 with a few uncles, Ken and I. There was a bet on who would land the biggest fish. I think Ken did, but mine was very close. Ken allowed me to win and collect a few dollars so I could eat on the way home. Thank you Ken. God Bless you. Joni and Sue – May you find peace again and know God will comfort you. Our prayers are with you now and always. Bob and Jan

Sue & Joni, I wish I could be with you to give you a hug or just hold your hand. Joni, I know what you are going through, there is nothing like losing your Dad. There is nothing anyone can say to make the pain less or to make it go away, but time does lessen the pain. I loved your Dad, I wish I would of went to see him when I was home a couple of weeks ago, he looked so like my Dad. I know they are both in a better place and they are happy and pain free.They did suffer so in their lives and I know they are at peace and together again.
Sue, I’m so, so sorry. Time does really lessen the pain, I know it’s hard now to believe that. Uncle Kenny is in a better place, pain free and at peace. Both Uncle Kenny and Dad were taken from us way too soon, and selfishly I want them back, but I wouldn’t want to back just to see them suffer. I regret not coming by to see you when I was home a couple of weeks ago. Mom didn’t have you phone number, please send it to me or send me an email ([email protected]). I love you all.
