My heart is broken Bonnie. I will miss seeing & joking with Kenney. I remember when I gave him flowers he wanted for you to give you at the breakfast table "Lilacs" and he often picked roses for you. But you know this. His love was one of wonder, he loved everyone. He always had a smile and a laugh. Love you & praying for you and family. Sarah

"Bonnie" So sorry for your loss. I feel your pain. Will miss tormenting him as I go by and reminiscing about our days at the News and Sun. My deepest sympathy to you and your family. L.O.V.E.
