    Uncle Kenny lost his leg in an accident at a young age. He never let it slow him down and he never acted like a victim. My Uncle Kenny was one of the most loving and generous men I have ever known. He was always there to give you a kiss and tell you he loved you. I know he missed Aunt Rose,but was so faithful to her in life and in death. I am so proud to call him my uncle and he will be missed by so many. Hope he’s in heaven having one more kool-aid with his family and friends.
