  6. Uncle Kenny and Aunt Darlene were the best family ever. Growing up as a kid with Nannette and Joey left me heartfelt lasting memories. Going to their house growing up, you always felt a sense of comfort and love from them. Uncle Kenny was funny, a grill master, and a loving gentle father, uncle and husband. He always helped people in need when least expected and loved his family deeply. I will never forget you and your presence on this earth. Until heaven Uncle, I’ll be looking at you in the sky. Sending my deepest sympathies and prayers for the family that lost a wonderful man and have to navigate now without him. May god continue to bless you and heal your broken heart.
