Dear Kathy, Ken, Casey and Andy
Oh no. So sorry to read of Kenny’s passing. He and my son, Franklin, were best buds in elementary school. He was always welcomed out at our house and was very nice. The last time I saw him was at Free State and he was putting on the mascot uniform. The attached picture is just how I will always remember him: red headed with a nice smile.

I can not believe thia ia true. I keep hoping I’m just going to wake from a bad dream. Kenney and I had a tumultuous relationship over the years we new each other. At one point he was one of my better friends. We had a falling out over aomething that in retrospect was very feivilous and small. I really wish we coukd of made a mends I cannot believe he ia gone . I love and will miss you Kenney my thkigghts and prayers go out to your close friwnds and family’s. I wish you eternal peace brother. Who knows maybe one day we shall meet again.
