    Sincere condolences to hear of Kenny’s passing. Met him at SWHS when he and Jack Madden were buddies. He was in our wedding 1960 where he met Janice whom I worked with in Seattle. Last saw him at a class reunion at the Bistodeau’s. Was glad to hear he had remarried. Taking time to reflect today. Hugs to everyone.

    My deepest sympathy to the family for your loss. May the “…Father of tender mercies and God of all comfort…” be with you during this time of sadness. (John 5:28-29) (Psalm 37:10-11) (Revelation 21:3-4) (Psalm 83:18)
