I offer my condolences to Kenny's family and many friends. Kenny and Sonny gave me my first job as a sales person at Williams Clothing...mostly from 8 am to 9 pm each Saturday. I learned a lot about how a business functions...great experience. I also stepped in to help many of Kenny's customers when he had to race out of the store to participate in a fire department call. Kenny was also kind to invite me to his home on Benton Avenue for a noontime meal each Saturday. Following lunch, we relaxed for the balance of our lunch hour listening to symphonies on his stereo. I have so many fond memories.
