I was sad to hear about the recent passing of Kenny. Maggie and Kenny have been wonderful friends over the last few years.. I always thought highly of Kenny and had much respect for him. He will be sadly missed by all.

To you, Margaret, also Barbara, Joan and Linda along with your whole family, we send you our love and prayers.
We pray that God will hold you and comfort you on your great loss.
Joe always thought so much of Kenny. He often mentioned him when we would be talking about younger days at Grandmas or wherever.
God bless to all of you during this very sad time.
