To the Rogers Family – I was saddened to hear of Kenny’s passing. I went to school with him from K-6 grades. My family then moved away and I lost track of him. I was in Ionia recently and talked about him and all of my classmates. I will keep your family close in thought and I will pray that you find some comfort in your memories of him.

You still have your cherished memories and no one can take those away. May God bless you all. In Sympathy, Donna Kuhtz Foster, North Port, FL.
