I remember the fun times when you took me and our little brother snow sledding at the parks.
I have wonderful memories of the great times we had at rough river water skiing, having bonfires, and going to see the fireworks on the river on the 4th of July. If I ever needed help, you were always there for me. I know mom and dad and Donnie are so happy to see you in heaven with them. Love and miss you already.

I will always remember my brother Kenny for the kind way he treated me while growing up. When we were adults he did the same. He was always there when I needed help and never treated me like the younger sister. He was a great man of character and found good in everyone. I will miss calling him, meeting him to eat and just enjoying being with him. We had some good laughs together and cried when things were not going well. I loved him so much and will always remember our good times I am so glad he is now free from pain and look forward to being with him in Heaven. Thank you God for giving me such a good friend and brother
