KENNY R.I.P. IN 1973, I REMEMBER AS A LITTLE GIRL, MY FAMILY AND I WERE LIVING IN MILWAUKEE, WISCONSIN. MY SISTER AND I HAD A BEDTIME SCHEDULE THAT WAS TIGHT. MY MOM AND DAD LET US STAY UP PAST OUR CURFEW, ONLY SO WE COULD SEE THE BOXING MATCH, OF KENNY BREAKING THE JAW OF THEN, CASSIUS CLAY, WHO IS NOW KNOWN AS MUHAMMED ALI. KENNY WAS FROM THE LITTLE TOWN OF JACKSONVILLE, ILLINOIS, WHERE WE HAD LIVED AT THE YEAR BEFORE MOVING TO MILWAUKEE. WE FOUND OUT KENNY WAS GOING TO TO BE HOME DURING THE SAME TIME WE WERE GOING TO BE THERE. I WAS AT MY AUNT HAZEL AND UNCLE PAUL'S HOUSE ON ANNA STREET WHEN KENNY WAS JOGGING PAST. I REMEMBER MY MOM (BARBARA DANIELS- WILSON) INTRODUCING MY SISTER AND I TO KENNY. I FOUND OUT YEARS LATER, KENNY WAS A TRACK STAR FOR HIS HOMETOWN. ANOTHER TIME WE GOT TO STAY UP LATE WAS WHEN KENNY ACTED IN THE MOVIE MANDINGO. PARENTS CENSORED WHAT THE KIDS WATCHED BACK THEN, SO WE HAD TO CUT THAT MOVIE SHORT AND GO TO BED A LITTLE EARLIER WHEN A SCENE NOT APPROPRIATE FOR KIDS WAS SHOWING. KENNY, YOU WILL BE MISSED AND IS A LEGEND IN YOUR TIME.
