Jennifer loves you Mr.Kenny! I will never forget your coffee with Splenda and don't forget the cup of ice.

A lifetime of memories with Kenneth. We were best of friends through 12 years of school and neighbors on Barbee Road. We had a lot of good times growing up together. Hunting, fishing, bullfrog hunting and double dating with the girls from Richlands. I knew all of the family and they were like family to me. The greatest people in the world.

My sweet Uncle Kenny, you will be missed so much. I miss our gator rides, and our trip to Arnold's every night. I will do good so you can continue to be proud of me. I would still come visit you.. if heaven wasn't so far away. I'll see you again one day.

Ms. Catherine, Craig, Neal and Barbee family, Annette and I were sad to learn of Kenneth's passing. He and I were lifelong friends, having attended school and church together as we grew up, and even going to Wilmington together in 1960 to take the Air Force entrance exam. We extend our love and prayers to the entire Barbee family. Rest in peace old friend.

Annette and I are sad to learn of Kenneth's passing. I grew up in Richlands and attended school as well as church with Kenneth. In 1960, Kenneth and I traveled to Wilmington together to take a test to join the Air Force. We have remained friends throughout the years. Kenneth was a good man! We extend our love and prayers to Mrs. Catherine and the entire Barbee family. Rest in peace old friend.

I am sadden to read of the passing of Kenny. He was always very nice to me and all those he met. I regret I will not be able to attend the celebration today,but I will keep the family in my prayers.
