I just spoke with my Mom and heard the sad news about the passing of Mrs. Kenny…… I just wanted to pass on my deepest condolences..
I so remember Mr and Mrs. Kenny coming to my Mom and Dad’s to play cards when I was young and I still remember being so impressed with her bangles and boots and telling her so 🙂
She was such a “classy lady” ….. my sympathies and thoughts are with you at this time…
Her picture is EXACTLY as I remember her….
Take care and again, my deepest sympathies.

Sorry for your trouble, John, Cherie and Calla. You were all so strong and supportive when Brian passed. You did good.
