Will be thinking of you all as you lay your sweet Kenneth to rest. His spirit will surely be missed here on this old Earth but I know he has got great things to do in Heaven. I know some of your memories are bittersweet but in time, they will be the most precious thing you have to hold on to. May he rest in eternal peace. Praying for the family's strength during this great time of sorrow.
