  • My heart, thoughts and prayers go out to the Kenney Family. Barry will be sorely missed by many. He was a friend to all and would do anything to help others. He loved to pick and joke and have fun. May God Bless each of you and comfort you mourn the loss of a great man.

    Calandra and Antwan, Sharmaine and the rest of the family, hang in there. I will be praying for you!
