"Gilbert and I still look for your truck to be in the driveway waiting for us. Never thought we could miss somebody as much as we do you. We wish you a Happy Birthday in Heaven and we will see you again someday! We Love You Kenneth!"
"Kenny, it has been a long year. We have missed you every day. What a legacy of friends you left here. Have a Happy Birthday!"
"The world now has a great memory of a great man. Kenny always knew how to make me laugh. I'll never forget how happy he was when he was in his shop fixing something. He never once raised his voice, always a kind-hearted man. To this day, I still cannot believe how short life is. My heart goes out to him and his family."
"Our thoughts and prayers are with you. Kenny was such a nice person who was always willing to help anyone. Please let us know if there is anything we can do for you."
"On May 6th, 2012,our world grew darker as we lost one of the dearest friends we will ever have. Will never forget him and Gilbert "piddling" with things. Funny thing is that most of the time they made it work. When he loved you, he loved whole-heartedly, and we know how much he loved his wife and children. He was more of a Brother than a friend and we will remember him always. Love You!"
"When Ethan and I think of Kenny, we always remember his willingness to help people. Whenever a lawn mower wouldn't work like it was supposed to, we knew who to call-- Kenny. Kenny was always smiling with a great sense of humor. You could frequently see him driving down the road going to see Gilbert never in a great hurry to get there or anywhere. A friend always."
