"Hi Kenny,
I know this is late since your birthday already passed. I didn't forget your special day.I wrote my yearly wishes to you on my Facebook as I always do. Wow you would have been 30, a big birthday. I wish I didn't have to wish you a happy birthday this way but God wanted you and you had to go. I know your okay and happy, together with your mom. I think all the time on how different things would have been for Jenna and Nick, especially Nick. I know how you put him above everyone and its  the way it should be. Some parents don't put their children first.Like you I always did. Your children will always be your children while ppl come and go in your life. I wish you were here so Nick can come see you and feel safe. I don't like how hes living now and its not fair he went through enough with your passing. I see him, I see he smiles he laughs but no one will ever convince me that he isn't sad on the inside. He needs stability . I'm afraid all this will affect him as it did me years and years later which still affects me today. I know this was suppose to be a birthday wish but I just needed to tell you this. Please watch over him every day and help him, make him happy inside considering. help make his life better.  Your always in my thoughts , always in my heart and I'm so sorry for what happened. I never would have thought. You were the best thing for Jenna even through bad. I will always believe that in my heart. and I know in yours how much you loved her. truly from your heart. You were so proud of her on carrying and giving you a son. Time was not long that you had together which breaks my heart. Love you."

I can't believe its 5 years today. Time has passed so quickly, life moves forward without you in it. It still just shocks me today that this has happened, that I'm writing this to you like this.That day, will forever be etched in my mind, in my heart. I can still see everything so clearly as if it were yesterday.I know God has reasons for all that he does, reasons none of us will ever understand, never be able to figure out why. That word "WHY" is such a small word that holds so much thought behind it. Lives taken so very young, before you really have a chance to live. Having a son that you won't be able to physically see grow up, I know you see him, watch over him, and love him with all your heart from above. I was going through my closet where I have some boxes I've kept for the last 5 years. I came across one that says on top " For Nicholas Scott Sova" daddy's things. I sat on the floor and went through it again. Your harmonica was in there, a picture Nick drew, some books you read, and I just cried. I even found a CD you made for Jenna, that you wrote on it "Baby Girl" what you always called her. She still wears shirts that has that on it. The whole month of September is bad for her, she's sad, depressed and cries. Your life will always be remembered in our memories and in our hearts. You will never be forgotten. Nick will always know your his daddy. We miss and love you each and every day. As well as we miss Nancy, so tragic. I know your both together, you were very close with each other, and not your together in Heaven. All my love Ma xoxo  9/24/2015"

"Happy Birthday Kenny. I can't believe you would have been 29, still so so young to not be here. I wrote a long message on facebook on 7/24 and I apologized thinking that day was 7/25. I miss you, we all miss you. You'll be forever in our hearts. Last night I was having flashbacks of that horrific day, that tears just came rolling down, as they are now. The song itself on this site is breaking my heart. I still dont understand, I guess I never will. Just 24 and taken by God. I know God wanted you home and I know he needed you and your mom, but so young, so full of love for your son! I know he was and is your everything. I see myself sitting on the floor in your room just crying and crying. You should have never gone through such a horrific death. I think about you often, and wish you were here for Nick most of all. I hate that Nick can no longer see you. I know your there for him always, and for Jenna. I know you also watch over Nathan cuz thats the kind of guy you are. I hope your always and forever with all of us. I need to come and visit you, its been awhile and I'm sorry for that. I hope you found David and together having a ball. Look for my dad Tom, hes Nicks great grandpa, tell him who you are, he's a wonderful man. I miss all 3 of you with all my heart. Happy Birthday to you. I seen a sign from you Wednesday a green Nova, and I knew you were there. Love you xoxo 7/25/15"

"For you"

"Kenny its been 4 years since you were taken from all of us. Your family ,our family, most importantly Nick. When you left you took a part of all of us with you a part that will never be the same. A part that will always remind us each and everyday how much we miss you, how much we hurt inside. Time doesnt heal as people may say, time just makes our memories stronger. Your loss has devastated us all. For Jenna you'll always be that one love , not only love but her very best friend.She struggles every day with your loss as does Nick.I know you know how good of a job she has done with Nick I know you see that. I know your there by their sides by all of our sides wAtching over all of us. I know how proud you are of  Nick.I hope you'll continue to alwats ve around him so he knows your there, smiling with all the love you have for him. He calls Kevin Dad which still bothers me, but he wants and needs somone to call Dad. In his heart he knows your his dad.Kevin does pretty good with Nick I know you see that and I knowyour okay with it as long as your son is happy. Nick is a happy boy but I still see that sadness deep inside his eyes and it just breaks my heart. Im very proud that your Nicks daddy , I just wish you had more time with him. This day I will never forget , ever . I can replay it over and over like it was yeztetday. Im sorry with all I have that you and Nancy were taken the wY you were and I'll never understand. Only God knows why. Kenny your Forever in my heart. All my Love alwaysxoxo"

"Happy 28th Birthday Kenny/daddy! I can't even tell you how much we miss you, because I know you know. Nick and I were so blessed to be part of your life, I wish you never left us because nick didn't get enough time with you. There is NEVER a day that we don't think, talk, or brag about you, you truly were a amazing man, daddy, son, uncle, brother and most of all my best friend. You gave me the best 11 years in my life, wish our son and I could have 11 more years with you. I never thought nick and I would live our lives without you. We are having cake and our yearly balloon release for you tonight, I hope you like them. We love you so much!!!!"

"Dear Kenny
Happy Birthday. 28 today its almost been four years already. Time just passes us by so quickly to me though I feel like it was just yesterday that you were taken home to God so young only 24. Do I understand why ? No.. but we have to trust in his reasons. Was it meant for you to only be with Nick such a short time  was it meant for Nick to grow up without you..was it yout final act to bring Nick in this world  ? So many questions with no answers. I wish I coulf say I hope you have many more bdays but we cant. Wish I can say enjoy your day I just dont know what your day is. I wish I could buy you a gift but all I can send was a balloon. I wish you were back here with us. Some wishes just dont come  through.
Love you
Mom  xoxo.  7/25/14"

"Kenny my mind still can't accept that this has happened.If I could find a way to turn back time,if I could take back what has happened I would do it in a second, but I can't.Nick asked if someone could take him by his daddys house, he's probably wondering where you are, why your not coming for him, it breaks my heart. I don't want him to think your just not coming for him.It's so hard."

This tribute was added by Toni Vom Brack on 3rd October 2010

"Kenny your always in my thoughts, always in my heart. I miss you, I miss that your not here with Nick. That you

It's amazing to think back to the first time we met at Grove Jr. High and realize just how long ago that was. Yet at the same time it's not nearly long enough. You were taken from us far too soon. I will miss you so much...kimi"

Whenever I had a bad day you always knew how to make me laugh. Its really sad to know that you are not here physically but spiritually you will always be here. There are not enough words to describe how amazing of a person you were."
