Cindy
Both Kenny and you have been good friends of mine and I am so sorry to hear of his passing.  Please take care of you during this time of mourning.  My thoughts are with you and hope you are taking care.

Cindy, Kyle and family,

I have so many good memories of Kenny. He was my first boss, at Jensen's Die and Stamping.  He hired me when I was 17 years old in 1992, and kept me there during the summers until I was 21, through college.  To this day, I still have an appreciation for Brown & Sharp tooling, and the DSMA.  I made a lot of parts with that machine! (The lemon and the peach were fun too).

In grade school kids were happy if they were in the same class as Kenny & I.  That's because we shared January 24th as our birthday, and tradition said you had to bring treats for everyone on your birthday.  I always brought cookies from my grandparent's grocery store, Kenny brought the "dixie cups" (ice cream) from his parent's dairy.  Rest in peace, classmate, and sympathy to Ken's family.

Oh, all the New Year's Eve adventures!  Growing up knowing Kenny was an absolute delight.  Such an incredibly fun spirit.  We send great love to Cynthia, Kim, Kyle, and their families and wish you peace in the days ahead.
