Karen and Myron, We have many memories of Kenny--when Kenney worked with him at MP Bishop and then at FS. They had a lot of fun together. We always enjoyed his visits when he would come over to just sit and talk or when he was mowing across the street and needed a drink and talked some more. After he went to the nursing home, I enjoyed visiting with him there and admired that he kept a positive attitude. He will be greatly missed.

Condolences to the Adams family. I so enjoyed "Chrome Dome" (as I knew him) when I was a young kid and he worked with my dad (Gary Kennedy) at M.P. Bishop Fertilizer. I know my dad thought an awful of Kenny. God Bless.

Karen and Myron,
We want you to know that we are sorry for your loss and we will be praying you through this tough time. You have had a lot to deal with in the last few years. Kenny was a good friend of Stephen's dad when they were young and Stephen remembers hearing stories of their youth and antics. Of course I remember your mom and always thought she was so beautiful (definitely the prettiest woman ever on a lawn mower :-)
Stephen and Gail (Thomas) Sigler
