Rest in Peace
My dad phoned me with sad news today: last night his brother-in-law and good friend, Kenny, passed away. Dad and Kenny have been friends for decades. As young men, they even played together in a band that performed at dance clubs and other events across the region--and they had a TV show in Minot! Some time after my mom passed away, Dad married Kenny's sister Beverly, which brought Dad and Kenny back into more regular contact again. Kenny and his wife Bea often made special trips from their home in Bowbells to Dad and Beverly's home when they knew that our family was coming to visit just so that they could see us, something that our girls remember fondly and mentioned tonight when I told them the sad news. We'll wait to hear about funeral arrangements and, in the meantime, keep Bea, Beverly, their family members, and Dad in our prayers.
