We always felt good when Kenneth came around to see us in Asheville, NC. He was a very gentle soul. I remember us playing as kids. I will miss him. Emily & Jim Smoke

Kenneth would stop and visit when he was around. One of the funniest memories was when Jerry and him came by on a scooter. Kenneth was the driver and he was all over and very wobbly . I still chuckle when I remember it. He will be missed.
