    Neighbor “Kenny” was always so kind to my family and I. He was quick to lend a hand or a tool to Alex and was happily when Bella made a tasty treat for him and Doris. I will miss his laugh, firm handshake, and sitting in the garage shooting the breeze and watching the golf. Rest In Peace, Ken, you are already missed…
