I did not know Kenny and his family until later in life. His dad and I were first cousins, though Kenny was older than I. I liked Kenny and Loved him as family from the very first time I met him. We had a lot in common: veteran, farming and family. My sympathy and prayers to Jesse,Caleb, Roger, Linda, Brenda, Patty and Toni. Love you all!!
