Thanks, Kenny, for all the good times at Big Blue and at Greene Eddie's, your dad's place, with our gang--a million laughs. But especially thank you for getting me that iron-worker job with Dellovade when I was broke, first at Sago on the Buckhannon River. We did have some good times didn't we, Ken. You were/are such a good guy, always cheerful, heart of gold, funny, loved to laugh, and poke fun. God bless you, Ken. Rest in peace. Jack

I am at a loss for words at how sad I feel. I cannot begin to imagine your feelings. Be strong and smile, Kenny would want that. Warmest regards, DR

Dear Jackie, There are no words except to say that you and Kenny are in my thoughts and prayers. How well I remember getting to know Kenny in 7th grade science class and having a crush on him as did all the other girls. Many other good memories from junior and senior high school. Connor and I enjoyed being with you both at the Wiley Reunion last year. Mary Beth
