    So sorry for the loss of my buddy. I loved seeing him come to Flintville Mini Mart. He was such a cut up, yelling and a big smile as he came through the doors. I sure will miss the talks, laughs, and jokes, we had there. Praying for you all. Mike and Sheila just know it doesn’t get any better. It gets Bear a ble…Love you all.

    I have a heavy heart today as I am getting ready and dressed to go see my favorite person be laid to rest.
    My uncle Kenneth was a true cowboy, gentleman, loving person.
    He loved being with family and friends making music and sharing laughs with all. Such a big heart. Always making sure everyone was having a good time. So many great memories I have of all of us together. From Tim’s Ford lake to the Circle “L” ranch.
    I love you uncle Kenneth and I will miss you but I know you are resting and feeling like the ole you. Love you, Shannon
