Dear Aunt Kenyon, I will always be reminded of you when I am thinking of my family . You brought so much energy and love into our lives . I will remember how much pride you showed when your children and grandchildren were around . And your beautiful lasting love story with Uncle Jim will be one of your many gifts to all of us. Thankyou for showing that strength and kindness can be wound together as long as love is there to guide the way. You were the rock ,now you can let go and fly. Thankyou for being you.

I worked with Kenyon's daughter Anne for many years. She was always so friendly to me and brought me coffee cake at Christmas. Even when we no longer worked together she would travel to my new job and bring me coffee cake. She did that for many years. Such a great and fun person. She will be missed greatly. May God give all the family peace and comfort during this time of loss.

Kenyon you are an amazing neighbor. Though we had only known you for six months I felt like I had known you longer. We just clicked and I so enjoyed your company and listening to your stories. I can’t look at anything with a frog without thinking of you.
You always greeted me with a hug and when we exchanged phone numbers I loved that you’d call just to let me know you were ok. I was so hesitant to tell you that I was gay, but you accepted me and told me I was loved.
I’m really going to miss you. I’m really sad that I didn’t get more time with my favorite neighbor.
