Barb and family. I am so sorry to hear of Kenny's death, and my thoughts and prayers are with you at this most difficult time. I have fond memories of Kenny, when we were in grade school together, at Franklin!

Brothers in adventure, brothers in casts to heal broken bones, and even in the same hospital at the same time, not to mention our painful excursions to California when instead we should have stayed home in our wheelchairs (yeah, right!). Kenny, you always were and still are, almost 50 years later, one of my dearest friends. What a pleasure to spend time with you at the JD reunion 2 years ago, and the short time we were blessed to spend together at Steve's memorial back in February. God bless you Kenny, you will always have a special place in my heart.
