This is cousin Paul. I hadn’t seen

Kenny since we were kids, but I’m very sorry to hear of his untimely death. My condolences to all his family.

To Aunt Paula and The Entire Family,

I was deeply saddened and shocked to hear about your loss. My deepest heartfelt prayers and sympathy are with you. I know that he was a great man. “Rakedra” spoke so highly of him, during the summer while she was here with us, in Flint. So often it seems as though the people we “love and cherish” so much, are the ones who depart from us so soon. I know that you will cherish his love and memories in your hearts forever.

To Paula and the dennard Family, Kenny and I have been friends for quite a number of years and we always talked about the trip to New York when we were together. I will miss him for he was always there for me whenever I called him. I thank God for the last time we were together, him and his wife Paula had breakfast together two weeks ago. He will be missed by all . Keep lookig to the Lord for strengh.
