My thoughts and prayers are with all of the family. Your parents were so good to everyone and I know you will miss them both. So close in death is hard but they are together to part no more! Kenny you probably don't remember me but I was married to Bimbo Troutt. It has been a very long time since I have seen you but wanted to express my sympathy to you. Bimbo loved your family. Your dad came to him the night he got saved. Such a blessing! Great Memories. With love & prayers, Connie Trammel

Mike and Kenny, just want to let you know how sorry I am about you mom. She was well loved by everyone. I know you both know that without a doubt. I would have loved to have been able to come and pay my respects and saw you both. Unfortunately I can’t because of my health. I will keep you and your families in my prayers that you find peace and comfort in this heartbreaking time.
