You have picked a fine time to leave us Kenny. With so many hungry children and a virus in the field. We had some sad times, lived through some sad times. But this time your hurting won’t heal. You’ve picked a fine time to leave us Kenny. Thank you for decorating our lives with beautiful music. Rest easy.”
