Wish we could play cards, sip some whiskey, and hear all the great stories you had with Uncle Gary, Grandpa, Aunt Nancy, and Uncle Stevie. Y\'all had some fun! I hope Bailey and I have as much fun and love that you and Aunt Nancy had all the way until the end. You were always so happy and always had a smile on your face. Will miss the phone calls from you and Aunt Nancy and picking up to you saying \"How\'s it going buddy\". Wish we could go fishing and play train, rummy, or screw your neighbor one last time. Love ya Kenny. See ya later buddy.
