I am so sorry to hear of Kenneth's passing -- Prayers for Sammye, Patricia and Keith and Wanda-- especially, at this bittersweet interval of life.
What sweet memories I have from all the various past family reunions at Uncle Bud & Aunt Janie's house. I pray for peace for you all. He was such a dear and sweet man. May your memories and love for each other bring you comfort.
Sending my love and hugs to you all.
