Sending many prayers to the whole family for this tremendous loss. I remember him driving around the neighborhood in his work truck with his son Kenny (Donut). He seemed friendly and was always picking Donut up from somewhere. He is in the very best hands of the Lord now. Please take comfort in that. 🙏🏻💜
