Judy and Daryl....we were sorry to hear of Kenny's passing. He was such a sweet man .....and I was always amazed at his immaculate garden! Such patience that must have taken!! We enjoyed sitting in their driveway watching the parades during the Joy Fest. Ed and I will be in Minnesota this weekend and unable to attend Kenny's service. Please know our thoughts are with you. May you find peace in knowing he and Dorothy are together again.
