  3. Kenneth and I were first cousins and I was saddened to learn of his death. Although I had not seen him in several years, I remember him from those many years ago when we were children and more recently when my sister and I visited with him and Rose. Kenneth and Rose were always so gracious when we visited and made us feel right at home. Occasionally Kenneth and I talked by phone. I will truly miss him. I know how much he was loved by his family and his many friends.
