What a tremendous loss for the family today! Although I knew Kenny more when I was smaller visiting with him every year at the Richards family reunion, right away I knew he was a positive person from his relationship with lord to his family. My heart hangs heavy knowing that such a good human being is no longer with us and that he will forever be missed!
