Dear Melissa and Charleen you have no idea how much your Dad meant to me and my family. Kenny will always be remembered as a kind, caring and funny soul who we shared so many great times together. He was always up to mischief of some sort! We were celebrating July 4th out on the 'bluffs' between Antioch and Romance (AR) having a bottle rocket war between each other and many other friends. I fired off a bottle rocket aimed for him and immediately he screamed out he was falling off the bluff. I became hysterical thinking I had caused him serious harm and was racing around for someone to get help. Low and behold, he jumped out from behind a bush to show me he was okay....I was ready to clobber him then!! I cried the rest of the night 'cause he scared me so bad. Over the years, it has became a very fond memory of good times and a good friend. Miss ya Kenny!
