    Just wanted to say that I always had great memories of Uncle Kenny. He was actually my dad's cousin, but they were very close and felt more like brothers. Losing my dad was one of the hardest things I've ever experienced, so I know this is such a hard time. Keeping the family in my thoughts and prayers. Hoping my dad and Kenny are enjoying a reunion like none other. Much love to all of you, and may God's comfort keep your hearts and move you forward toward your destiny in Christ Jesus.
