I'm so sorry to hear about Uncle Kerney. It's been a long time since I've seen any of the family but you are all in my thoughts. He and Imogene were always so nice to me. I will always remember him playing the mandolin and that great laugh! My Mother doesn't travel now but she sends her love.
May God be with you all during this time
