Kenneth is my little brother . Me and him shared birthdays well a day apart but growing up we always shared a birthday cake. And also when were little dad got a moped and Kenneth was just learning to ride it. He was on it and turns twords a fence and dad hollered at him to hit the break's instead of doing that he hit the gas and hit the fence. That's one kinda funny memory I have of us as kids . I also remember all of us as kids getting ready for school in the morning waiting for the cartoons to come on before we went to school. We all as kids loved that moment. And Saturday morning cartoons. He also loves his Xbox . Me and my best friend Will Riddle had a house years ago and Kenneth would come up and hang out with us. And everyone else and we all would shoot pool. He liked coming to hang out with everyone and shoot pool. And he loved to go fishing me and him went even after he found out he had osteosarcoma. He went and bought his year fishing license although he had difficulty moving around with his condition he still wanted to go he loved to be out doors I took him to warriors path State Park to go fishing but we didn't catch anything because he was limited to where he could get. But we tried. He also loves my kids even the day the doctor's told him there was nothing else they could do . I got to work and just pulled in the parking spot and put it in park. I got a text from him telling me he hoped he at least has enough of time to see my daughter Aurora grow up to the age of 5 years old but he said I probably want have that luck I'll probably only get to see her until she's 3 years old. But he only got to see her right before she turns 11 months old. He told me to not let my kids forget who he was or is. And Kenneth I will always tell them all about you there uncle Kenneth I will not let them forget I can promise you that. Ok little brother . Kenneth also loved the holidays for the food and all the family being together. We all will truly miss you buddy.

I didn't know that Ken loved skulls but now. I took a gift before he died and I had a necklace with skulls on it. And it's the best gift I ever had for him I didn't realize that he liked it that much can loved the gift I took for him and he even where'd in his neck even after he passed. Now Ken has in my heart forever it touches me how much debt one gift enjoyed that much. And promise I will remembering of him many years to go I wish I had had more time maybe eventually we will meet one day again when the Lord calls us home together. But I'm so happy to meet him and who he was and he will be missed and remembered. And I'm proud to say that you were my family and you'll be always family to me I love you Kenneth

When Kenneth was about 3 or 4 years old he always wanted to be loved on. He would come to me or anyone that was there and get in your lap and just cuddle up to you and just want you to wrap your arms around him and just set there the whole time holding on to him. My mom, his grandmother used to sew and make clothes for the grandkids. One Easter she made matching camouflage outfits for Kenneth Timmy, and Lee. They all looked so cute with those outfits on . I'm gonna really miss him but I know he's no longer suffering . I love you Kenneth.

Kenneth was always there if I needed someone to talk to. It didn't matter if I was upset and crying or if I was mad and needed to vent or if I just wanted to chit chat. He was always ready to listen and give advice and I miss him deeply. We use to play the COD ghosts game a lot and he would also play the game I liked with me even though he didn't care for it much. The kids always got excited to see him too and loved playing with their uncle Kenneth. They've been sad lately too you can tell they miss him. He was my brother in law and he was one of the best big brothers I could've had. We could never replace him not that I'd want to. He will forever have a special place in our hearts. Kenneth, we miss you bro. This is goodbye for now not forever. We will see you again one day. I love you.

Kenneth is my little brother. He was born on March 13 of 1988 and I was born March 14 of 1987 364 days apart we had a few disagreements over the years but you were always my little brother . And I always had your back. And tried to help you out when I could. My kids loved you and still do. Im going to miss our time together playing call of duty black ops ghost with you on play station 3 . And going fishing with you. And just spending time with you. But I will try to continue what we used to do with my kids. And when doing so I'll tell my kids story's about you little brother.
