  1. To a great friend, may you rest in peace. I know you’ll have a bad hot rod up there in heaven, along with the wings on your back, God bless you my friend you will surely be missed

  2. I enjoyed the visits I had with Kenny and Anita when they visited our “Romeos” breakfast club in Denver and came with his father Bill and Elaine. Hearing about his illness and subsequent death was hard to imagine as he seemed such a “strapping” young man, I’ll miss him.
