  • Laura, I’m so sorry to here of Kenny’s passing. My deepest sympathy to you and your family.

  • We are going to miss you greatly. You were taken away from us way too soon. We are finding that we didn’t know all the good ways you touched people and the great friends and neighbors you made. We will never look out into our backyard again and not think of you coming from your deer stand saying “Dad, get the tractor I got one”. We know all your friends and neighbors are going to miss you also. No more smelling smoke from your grill or steamed crabs to share. Hopefully the sunflowers you planted every year will still be at the end of the house being taken care of by your loving family. We love you and are going to miss you forever but we know your are happy being with God. The video really brings out the life you lived. Mom and Dad

  • Laura, Kelsey, Kenny and Family,

    I am sorry for the loss of your Husband, your Father and friend. To Kenny’s Parent’s, my condolences for the loss of your Son.

    I’m grateful to have known Kenny and will always remember his wonderful spirit. Right now, I’m thinking of the good times, the chili cook-off, the music, the laughs and all of the peoole Kenny has touched.

    I suppose he’ll speak to all of us in his own way over the years.

    If my words did glow with the gold of sunshine
    And my tunes were played on the harp unstrung,
    Would you hear my voice come through the music?
    Would you hold it near as it were your own?

  • I am so sorry for your loss, when y’all moved down the road from my family there was never a boring moment, always treated all of Kenny’s friends like family, and that’s something I’ll never forget. Sending prayers to y’all in this difficult time.

  • So very sorry a truly nice guy. Laura can’t say much else other then he will be missed

  • Laura,
    We are so sorry for the loss of your husband. We will be praying for you and your family that you would be comforted by God during this time of sorrow. Our love to you all! John 11:25-27.

    Addie, Reed, and kids

  • Laura and family,

    This is your cousin (Carey Foster). We haven’t see each other for a very long time, but my sister Dotti told me about this and I just wanted to say how sorry I am for your loss. I watched the video and it looks like you are a very close family. I’m sure you will miss him so much. We will be praying for you and your family. May the Lord comfort you at this time.

    Carey

  • Laura and family, Ann & Glenn, we offer our love and prayers and fond memories of great friends. Cherish the good memories, Fran & Jim

  • Rhonda and I were so shocked and sad to hear of Kens passing. He will always be remembered as someone who always had a smile on his face and love in his heart. I will always remember him teaching me how to fish for king mackerel on Avalon pier and introducing me to the Grateful Dead. The whites have always been more like family than friends having grown up spending every summer vacation together with us. He will be missed by all who were fortunate enough to have known him.

  • Thanks to both of you. It’s been a tough and long week since he passed. We are going to miss him greatly.

  • Nothing will fill the hole in all of our hearts! Ken was such a special person, always smiling and happy. No child has ever been more loved that he was. He brought out the very best in his granddaddy and uncovered a man we didn’t know existed. What a blessing he was to all of us! We will keep Laura, Kelsey, Kenny, and Glenn and Ann in our prayers. You have not left my mind since last Saturday. Love, Aunt Gail and Mike

  • Thinking of you with sympathy and the hope that time will bring comfort to your heart.

    “Those we love don’t go away,
    They walk beside us every day,
    Unseen, unheard, but always near,
    Still loved, still missed and very dear.”

    Joe & Ann Lamb, Family and Staff
