WE of course will keep your family in our prayers. Kenny was so special to me. I am so thankful that I got to spend the last 2 and a half years getting to know him at Troup High School. The way his eyes lit up in band and his laugh in class. I am truly sorry for your loss and want you to know that we share your sorrow at this difficul time. Our class may never be the same without my "Kenny-bug"
