It saddens me to see that Kenny passed away. I always got along well with Kenny, and he always treated me good for a young man trying to make a go of it in the oil field. Old Rig 22. I know he had a lot of down sides in his life, and I hope he made peace with those. I wish I had known he was here in Bismarck as I could have went and talked to him enlightening him with some old rig stories. God Bless and Godspeed.
