  9. CandleImageI am devastated to here the news of Kenny’s passing. My thoughts and prayers are with his parents Bob and Gina, sister’s Stephanie and Leslie and family. It has been many years since I have seen Kenny but I will never forget what a beautiful smile he had. May God embrace the entire family and friends during this difficult time.

  10. I am so very sorry to hear about the passing of Kenny. I have fond memories of him during two of our Disneyland trips with the Freed Middle School Jazz Band. I remember him as a very easy-going and well-behaved young man.

    Kenny and my mother were both diagnosed with cancer around the same time period of the early 1990’s. Kenny was so blessed to have beat this horrible disease, and be able to grow into a contributing member of our society for such a long period of time. I am hoping we will all be able to focus on the “good and happy times” with Kenny.

    My thoughts and prayers are with his very supportive and blessed family during this very difficult time.

  11. CandleImageYou – you alone will have the stars as no one else has them…In one of the stars I shall be living. In one of them I shall be laughing. And so it will be as if all the stars were laughing, when you look at the sky at night…You – only you – will have stars that can laugh.
