Kenny Dean I am so sorry for your loss. I know Uncle Kenny has a big smile right now because the two of them are laughing together again. That’s exactly how I will remember both of them, that tease, then a smirk and they both laugh. Such fun people and a big big loss. I will keep you, and your family close in spirit tomorrow. ❤️
