  • Carol,Denis And family,
    my sincerest condolence.. Prayers and love are sent to all of you. If there is anything I can possible do please let me know.

  • I am very sorry to hear the loss of Kenny. I remember him as a boy and a young man. Always respectful and caring and he loved playing baseball. My prayers and thoughts go to Carol and Dennis and all the Family. Hugs to you all.

  • Oh buddy, what am I going to do without you. You were my biggest cheerleader and a most loyal friend. You lived to make people smile and I will love and miss you. Until we meet again.

    🍀❤Whatever we were to each other, that we are still.
    Call me by the old familiar name.
    Speak of me in the easy way which you always used.
    Put no sorrow in your tone.
    Laugh as we always laughed at the little jokes that we enjoyed together.
    Play, smile, think of me, pray for me.
    Let my name be ever the household word that it always was.
    Let it be spoken without effort
    Life means all that it ever meant.
    It is the same as it ever was.
    There is unbroken continuity.
    Why should I be out of mind because
    I am out of sight?
    I am but waiting for you, for an interval, somewhere very near, just around the corner.

    How we shall laugh at the trouble of parting, when we meet again. 🍀❤
