Dear Janet and Family,

We are so sorry for your loss! Kenny was a fantastic friend who always greeted everyone with a great smile. He left us all with wonderful memories and lots of good jokes! I bet he told St. Peter a joke when he reached the gates of heaven. He loved each of you dearly and you are in our thoughts and prayers.
Love,
