    Out of the blue I was thinking of something funny Kenny said which made me search for him on FB only to find this obituary tonight. Kenny and I lived together for 2 years in VA when we were in our 20s. Imagine my surprise when a lifetime passes (20 years) and I’m leaving Publix in Palm Harbor and this guy yells my name and it’s Kenny. It was like that Dan Fogelburg song. (And we did laugh until we cried.) So profound. What are the odds of running into an old boyfriend to find you live in the same town 20 years later. He was the funniest person to be around and we had a great few yrs together and remained friends for many years later and I still have photos of us. Kenny may you rest in eternal peace. The world lost a great guy.
