    I don’t know if I will be able to attend any of Kenny’s services, but I do want each of you to know how special Bill and Grace’s family have always been to me. Mike, you feel almost like a brother. And Kim? You will never know how much joy you brought to me as a teacher and coach. I will always love you! God bless each of you as you go through the next few days and the coming months. Cherish the good memories, for that is the beginning of healing. Always, Jo
