Kenneth, yesterday was your birthday. Still think about you often. It has been hard to find someone to go baseball games with me and talk about it like you did. I am sitting here watching the Dodgers and Reds. It is spring training and I am not really into the game. I really miss those days, you and I would go to the games at Tiger Stadium. Came to Atlanta . I haven't been a fan of the Braves or any of the Atlanta teams. My youngest son, Anthony and I still talk about when I helped coach the GM Pontiac East basketball team with Chris Kirkland. I got you to play for us. You got Hank to play and recruited Walker D for a game. Anthony remembers playing with you during pickup games at Avondale when he came to Pontiac from Louisville for the summer. I still remember you telling the story about coming to the South and putting on lotion during the summer and how it cooked your skin. Lol. So, I wanted to let you know, I haven't forgotten you. Gwen hasn't forgotten you. It's just too sad to write about you, your friendship, kindness and caring ways and most of all, your smile. As you always said, You alright, then I am alright. Well, I am still alright although it is not the same without you.
