Attached is a pic. of my handsome son. Kenny was born 10/24/1984
& he died on April 18th. 2008 suddenly on a sunny spring Friday.
He was not the easiest of boys to raise but how many are. Yet he grew into this strong tall funny, hard working,lovable man.
2006 he hurt his back @ work he was certified in heavy equipment operations, Required surgery in Feb 2007 artificial disc replacement low back. he had a place of his own in the woods everything he always wanted, his german shepherd Rusty,a home and now a baby on the way.
2007 feb. surgery,june married,10/4/2007 a new son Ethan. Things were not simple nor easy with a new wife/baby. 2007 Christmas Wow what a blessing all of the family were gathered @ my home the family that watched Kenny grow up were present. Who knew this would be his last visit with the important people in his life. Not to mention his last Christmas on earth.
Winter was a bit bumpy for him but he was totally in love with his son. It was always the Kenny & Ethan show. Ethan was 6 1/2 months old when his daddy ; my son died. There are mixed stories from his widow, The sum of all of the stories long & short: The widow and my son were fighting most of the night of 4/17/08 & @ sometime ~ 11AM on 4/18/2008 Kenny took Ethan upstairs to nap, Sometime say~ 3ish Ethan awakened crying (probably knew his daddy had left him) The now widowed woman went up stairs to see why Ethan was crying,,,,, NOW SUDDENLY SHE APPEARS TO CARE ABOUT HER HUSBAND!!! SHE FOUND HIM DEAD!!!who knows how long he was dead but the EMS could not resuscitate him! 5p.m. I HIS MOMMA the last one called the last to arrive @ Kenny's home lots of cars & police lots of police! I will never forget when they finally allowed me to see my son MY BABY my baby! He looked like the last thing he did was kissed his son & told him I love you Ethan!.................oh i could go on on on........
