  • Alicia, We are sorry to read about Uncle Kenny. He was so much fun to be around.I remember his wonderful smile and laugh. I remember going to your house on Dawsett Ave after school and seeing him and Aunt Georgia. We are thinking of all of the family. May he rest in peace.

  • Many fond memories of your family on Dawsett ave. My dad, Red Dye was a baseball coach and your Dad and Mom would walk over to the field. Your Mom and Dad were always so nice to all of us kids, and your Dad was kind of funny and witty, always bringing a smile or chuckle. Thinking of you at this time.
