My dear loving uncle.  I'm going to use Kevin's words "Everybody needs an uncle Kenny in their lives"! You have brought me so much joy.  I'm the luckiest girl in the world to have had such a caring, sharing, charming and understanding uncle that loved the world.  No one will understand how I ache for you.  All the stories I would call and tell you will have to be told with silence response because you won't be there to laugh.  My light is dim right now, I can't bare the thought of not seeing that big smile and those hands on the hips as you say "Hush Child" or "Really Shonna" and we just crack up.  You my dear will be missed and our lives will be forever changed without our "Uncle Kenny"
