I don't have the words to describe how much I appreciate everything you did for us. You are and will always be the world's greatest dad. Thank you for teaching me everything you knew because of you passing down your knowledge I'm able to support my family. The smell of saw dust, the sound of a hammer striking a nail, drywall dust clogging my nose. All these things remind me of all the long hard days we put in together. We were supposed to our own business just days before you got sick, well I'm going to see to it that life long dream becomes a reality. I won't stop until Kirkland's Perfection Connection handyman services and more is a successful legit businessand I know you're going to be right there with me every step of the way. R.I.P Pops, love KT

Today is an occasion for compliments and praise. I'm thankful for God putting Kenny in my families life. We were fortunate to see his life change to do God's work on this earth. He was on fire for God, preaching to all he came in contact with, to let each know how God has changed his life and how God could change theirs also. Kenny's faith in God was true, and heaven has a true christian soldier now. Peace be with ashley and family, we are praying for you all.
