What a living legacy Kenny Davis leaves!  He was kind, hard working, and true to his word. He was a man of God who lived his faith.  His family was the center of his world, especially Charlotte.  Christians have the promise of eternal life and to join loved ones already passed.  Prayers for all, but praise for a wonderful life.

I remember so well going to church with your family and all the activities associated with the church.  So many good families and, of course, yours was among them.  Fond memories. I do remember that my dad told my mom that your mother 'breathed' correctly, not from the diaphragm. My deepest sympathies to you and your family in this time of loss.

Bev,Pam,Lois and your families:  Kenny was a good man and hard-working provider for his family. I will miss his warm hugs and conversations when we would happen to meet. The Hickok gene came thru to live 96 years. May the memories made over the years give you comfort and peace in the coming days.

My heart also rejoices with you at his Homecoming to the arms of Jesus. So many things in life change around us constantly. I pray that you will find comfort and peace in the One who never changes.
With love,
