I will truly miss and always love my big brother. He was the oldest of us five children, and was so great with his little brothers and sisters. He was a shining example of how we should all treat one another.

Thinking of you all in the loss of Uncle Kenney. I have so many wonderful memories of us all as kids with our Moms, Dads, Aunts, Uncles and of course, Grandma & Grandpa. Love and hugs to you all. I especially love this photo of Daddy & Uncle Kenney at Mom & Dad's 50th Anniversary celebration. We were all dancing & second lining around the room and I caught this view of them taking it all in while sitting just alike. :)
