So sorry for your loss.
Sorry for your loss. He was very nice and was younger than me and older than Sheila my sister when we all went to Union School years ago. and I remember him as a quiet, polite person. God bless at this difficult time.
Kenneth you will be remembered for the kind person you were ! In Gods hands
Sorry for your loss, enjoyed doing business with Kenneth, which always started out with a cup of coffee and a hunting or fishing story.
Shannon, I am so sorry for your loss.
My Deepest Condolences to the family and Shannon.
Shannon, we are so sorry for your great loss. You may or may not remember us as neighbors on 5th street when you were in elementary school. We saw Mary Lou’s post about Kenneth that she put on FB.
