  1. Kenny and Sheila, i would like to express my deepest sympathy for your loss. May God be with you always.

  2. Romans 8:38-39 (KJV) 38 For I am persuaded, that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor powers, nor things present, nor things to come, 39 Nor height, nor depth, nor any other creature, shall be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.

  3. Kenny & Sheila, We are thinking of you during this difficult time. I hope we’re as lucky when we’re older to have someone care for us the way you both have cared for your parents. They broke the mold when they made you! Love you bunches!!! Lori, Allen, Cameron & Connor
