    It was an honor to know such a great man. Although I didn’t know Kenny that long, the time that we did know each other we were like kindred spirits. He was indeed a humble man but with his faith in God he had a gift to be able to recognize when something wasn’t right with someone or if there was a need he would do his best to assist. There were many times that he would go with me to help me with something even though he didn’t always feel up to it. I could always count on him.

    Now that your race is won, go rest high on the mountain brother!! You have earned your place in paradise. Rest assure that you have left those that were blessed to know you a legacy of faith in God and the good in people. Rest in peace my friend. I will see you again one day!!

    Kenny you will be missed, I liked our conversations when you were going for breakfast early in the morning at the store before you headed out to work

  4. Kenny, you are a fantastic friend! Just wonderful. You didn’t want any limelight, always in the background, but always supportive of me and Jerri. I will always remember you and be thankful for you. I am so glad you are free and walking with Jesus! I will always be thankful for our talks.

  5. Had some wonderful times. Trips to OKC, Dallas and St Louis. Watching the Cowboys on Sunday mornings in the theater office. Preview nights. Scoring free movie tickets to local theaters. Sweating it out at Riverlanes. League nights. The free concerts at Yukatan Liquor Stand. Selling vaccuums. You were a wonderful friend and a lot of fun. I love you.
