I remember the day his mom and dad brought him home from the hospital. I was not quite six years old. He was the smallest baby that I had ever seen. We were backdoor neighbors with Mimma and Pappaw living in the corner. My father built a huge sand box where all of the kids in the neighborhood played. All the cousins were family to each other. Although we all eventually went our separate ways, love was always there. I'll miss you cuz.

Kenny was one of the 3 , Kenny,Scott & my husband Jerry. They worked together and visited together and told stories together. If they hadn’t seen each in a while they just picked up where they left off just like they had only been separated a little while. They(Kenny & Annette) have been in our hearts for years and will continue to be. And Annette and Stephanie will be in our prayers.

Annette & family,
Know that you are all in my thoughts and prayers. I knew who "Kenny Mac" was in high school but he was a couple of years older than me so I didn't know him well. I am so sorry for your loss and I pray that God gives you all strength, comfort and peace in the days ahead.
