Uncle Kenny's grin and twinkling eyes always made me smile. I have a great picture of him sitting in our (his older brother, Morris's) house, after Morris (my dad) died. His cowboy boots made an impression on me! Kim, my thoughts and prayers go out to you. I have great memories of time spent with you and the other cousins at family get-togethers.

I have many good memories of Uncle Kenny from North Dakota. We always enjoyed playing ping pong with him when he would visit while attending the academy. One time his choir came to our church, and we were so proud of his singing.

Gregg and I were saddened to hear of Kens passing. We watched many Niner games with Ken, ate his wonderful corned beef, and watched him sing at Shady. He will be missed. Jodi and Gregg Todd
