I know Kenny is in Heaven! I saw Kenny for the last time that night. It was raining and I was working the PM shift Kenny and Tommy were the night Detectives. I was driving to the S.D. Fwy headed home. I saw Kenny and Tommy in their White Nova headed to Vermont area. As with many others Kenny has always been in my thoughts. He was a great Deputy Sheriff and a terrific person. Even though I was a Trainee he always treated me as an equal. He is missed and will always be.
