Hey Kenneth I was thinking about you the other day when I drove past the Powerhouse Gym on Woodward. That was one of your favorite places. I remember how you loved to bench press and show off those guns. They didn't call you "tank" for nothing. It's been 11 years and I still miss you and our friendship. Continue to rest in peace.
