    Uncle Kenny,

    I am so hearbroken since your are no longer here. I remember all the good times I had spending time with you. I even remeber the Michigan days. It's funny how losing someone causes all of those memeories to come flooding back. You always showed how much you cared. There never was a doubt that you loved your family. Thank you for the life lessons that you shared with me. I have comfort in knowing that you are in heaven with Grandma, Uncle Lil John, Uncle Steve, Cousin Arlene and Cousin Jeffery. More than that my heart is happy knowing that you have no more pain and you are in the arms of The Almighty God. It will be hard to continue on without you but I know that one day I will see you again. Till then give everyone a hug for me.
