Kenda had the biggest heart and always willing to help others. We became friends at work and that escalated to a deeper friendship after she left the job force. We never lost touch and spoke on a daily basis, either on the phone, texting, Facebook, and meeting for an occasional movie, lunches and dinners. She was one of the most creative people I know, you could ask her if she could make something and without hesitation, she would say yes I can try and she conquered the quest.

I'm thankful she is no longer in pain.

Kenda will be missed deeply! RIP Kenda!!
