Mike and I were in attendance at Kenny and She's wedding in Toms River, NJ. They visited us in our home in Bayville until they moved away. Kenny was in the air force and was stationed many places. Sue is my first COUSIN. We talk on Facebook and occasionally on the phone. We saw Sue when her Mom my aunt Myrtle died. We are very saddened by Kenny's passing.
