There aren't enough wonderful words to describe Kenneth. He was an AWESOME classmate, a good friend, always going out of his way to help people. I do remember a certain story about fast driving, but I never rode in the car with him driving, so I shall pass it on as hearsay. You'll have to ask Eugene Branch about that story! My love and prayers to Carla and the rest of Kenneth's awesome family. I know he was loved incredibly and rightfully so. He will be missed.....but our reunion in Heaven is going to be glorious!
