My deepest sympathy to Aunt Wynona and Reba; as well as all the other family members. I will always remember the fun times we shared on ‘the Fun Farm’... as I called it, being from the city. He chased me around Grandmothers house with a chicken foot... I screamed and screamed. Lol. Thank you, Uncle Kenneth, for a lifetime of memories for me. May God bless the family as you grieve his passing. He has now reunited with his sisters, Earline (Mom) and Marie (Aunt). I love you all.
