We are so sorry for your loss. My husband Darrell worked with Kenny at American Greetings. When Kenny started working at Walmart is when I met him. We will miss seeing him there at Walmart waving and asking how we are. He never saw a stranger. We are praying for your family. God Bless You All!

Such a beautiful soul. A very kind and sweet man. Always smiling and so welcoming. My girls and I always looked forward to seeing him when entering Walmart. We were unable to hold back our emotions when we entered today and instead of seeing his smiling face, we saw the memorial display. We did not know this man outside of seeing him at Walmart, but we will miss his presence all the same. Prayers of peace and condolences to his family and loved ones.
