  1. I will miss Uncle Kenneth deeply. I could always count on him to be here for our Friends and Family meal, he was always making sure he would be here. He loved me and was not afraid to tell me. I guess now he will be home when I go to the cemetery (personal joke between us). I love you uncle Kenneth,
