Kenny just like daddy said in his message to you, life will never be the same without you. I know a lot of people liked you but I never knew how many people LOVED YOU until you left us. I hope you saw how you were honored by your firefighter brothers and also your brother police officers. I was told that you were going to have a send off like no other and they surely lived up to it. You had a funeral fit for a king and you deserved every thing they did for you. God Bless them all and especially may God Bless you and keep you in his care until we meet again.

Kenny, through the years you have taught me so much, a lot without even knowing or realizing what you were doing. When I was still a baby I watched you play baseball and immediately wanted to be like you. I watched you at the plate and spent countless hours trying to emulate you in my back yard. Then As a teenager I saw you as an excellent emt, an even better firefighter, and great cop. Again I aspired to follow in your footsteps. Then as a young adult I saw that no matter how involved you were with the fire dept, police dept etc your family still came before all, and again I found myself following you as I have done almost all my life. Kenny, my brother, you have Always been There for me and helped me through some very difficult times, and I know you will be there to watch over and guide me. Donna,Nicole,Allie you have my deepest condolences, your father was a great man, a great friend, and a great husband and father

To Mrs. Adamo and Family, I'm so sorry to hear of Kenny's passing. We went to school together and he was one of the rare ones who was nice to everyone, even those of us who were not popular. His legacy of helping people and the memories of all the wonderful work he has done will live on forever. It's so senseless when someone is taken so young. I lost my Father when I was 5 and it meant alot to hear how loved he was. I hope this gives you some comfort for your own children. May God Bless you and your family and give you the strength to deal with this tragedy. You'll be in my thoughts and prayers. Gina Giresi-Dinger
