Loss of a Dear Friend...

Some of you have asked if I was ok this week. I lost a dear friend on Sunday morning and have been not really myself.

Kenny was special.

I've never met anyone before who has had such zest for life. He was always happy to see everyone and exuded complete joy.

He was a brilliant musician. Every time I would see him, he would sing a goofy song from a Cheers episode (that I never actually saw). It's the one where Woody writes a song for his girlfriend, Kelly. It's a pretty silly song. The words go something like...Kelly, Kelly, Kelly, Kelly, Kelly, Kelly, Kelly...get the point?

Lastly, I've never seen anyone so in love with his wife before. Kenny was married for over 30 years, but he was more and more in love with his beautiful bride every time he saw her. I always told Kenny and his wife that I wanted to have a marriage just like theirs. They told me the secret was that God was the center of their marriage. What a testimony!

I leave you with a tribute that my Aunt wrote to our friend. Please visit her blog and tell her hi from me :)!

A Visit With Grammy

Love to all!


  1. Kelli,
    I'm going to link back to your blog from mine. I want others to see your wonderful comments, too.
    (hope I do this right...It's the ol' "teaching old dogs new tricks" thing.

  2. So sad losing a friend like that. Glad you knew him though! Are you okay?
