    I am so sorry that Kenny’s life ended so early. I know there will be a huge hole left in all of your lives but hopefully you will be able to cherish all of the wonderful memories. I suspect that he would want all of you to carry on, live your lives to the fullest, and learn to smile again. I wish you nothing but peace, love, and comfort.

    The Lord is your Shepard. (Psalm 23) He will bring comfort and peace in the midst of your tremendous loss. It has been over 30 years, but I remember Kenny from junior high and Whitehaven High School. He was a great WHS Tiger! May God be with you all and know that you were indeed blessed.
