Dearest Big Brother, what a pleasure it has been being your little sister. You were slow in letting down your guard, but once you saw i meant no harm, you opened your big arms and accepted me, not only into your home, but into your heart. What fun we had teasing each other. Thank you for being so caring and for all the laughter we've had along the way. Thank you for allowing me to crash into your and Carla's lives. I appreciated every opportunity I had to spend with you. It will be so hard not seeing you in you usual place at home, but you will always be in my mind and heart. God has called a jewel home. Rest in peace. Big Brother. I will see you on that great resurrection day.

Strength. Poise. Unwavering. Great Morals. Greater Principle. These are just some of the terms used to define you. You taught me a lot of things in life, and molded me passively along the way. I use the word “passively” because you allowed me to make my own decisions, determine my own path, and make my own mistakes so that I can learn along the way. You were more than a grandad to me, you were my dad. So this pain hurts twice as hard knowing I will never hear your voice again. I remember when I was just 10 years old and you gifted me a large, wool jacket. It had anchors on the buttons and I asked “what is this because this is really cool?” You responded that it was an official Navy peacoat that sailors wore. A friend of yours gave it to you and you passed it down to me. I grew up to serve in the U.S. Navy on a nuclear submarine, served in the Executive Office of the President of the United States at the White House, and had the opportunity to work in the most unbelievable places. And it was all thanks to your help in giving me the a sense of direction in this big, crazy world. Oh, and I still have that peacoat you gave me when I was 10 years old. It’s hanging up next my other Navy peacoat that I earned while serving our country, just like you did! Grandad, I’m going to continue to honor your name; your ways, teachings, and morals will not disappear. From Marian Anderson, I quote “I will always bear in mind that my mission is to leave behind me the kind of impression that will make it easier for those who follow.” Grandad, you definitely walked so that I could run. And I am entirely grateful. You did a great job raising me as a dad, and I will miss you every single day for the rest of my life. From your son - Josh

My dear, my love. It was difficult to witness your departure that Christmas morning. I prayed and hoped that they could bring you back to me even for a little while, but When God calls us to rest he promises to send a comforter to fill us with His love and comfort. He did just that, I realized what you were trying to tell me days prior, you were preparing me for your departure and telling to go on and live my life after you were gone. Though I wanted you to come home, you went beyond this world into God's loving arms. I thank you for allowing me the opportunity to love you and care for you these 26 years, without ever being separated except in death. My love thank you for the silly times, the uncertain times and the live , strength and happiness we shared in our marriage. Thank you Lord for the happy moments and years you allowed us to be together ❤. I'll see you again on that great day, we are called up to heaven. Rest in peace my love. Carla

Raymie R Kenner left a message on January 3, 2024:
Daddy; You were a man's man. When I was a little boy, I thought you were the smartest, toughest, and bravest man in the world. You could fix anything around the house, work on the car and help me with my homework. When I got older, I realized that the sun didn't rise and set on you. LOL. You had flaws just like everyone else. I realized that one day, I have to take your place and be that husband and father. Just like yourself, my kids thought the same about me. Life took a turn and our relationship was strained. That didn't mean I stopped loving you as my father and likewise. I am a man and I took care of my family because you set the precedent on how to do that. Daddy...job well done. I'll be fine. You can rest easy. Love, your son, Raymie
