    Hello Chris, this is Frankie D’Urso and we are so sorry to hear about Kenny. He was such a good man. I am sorry we couldn’t make it to the viewing, but I had to pick up Dylan from the airport during that timeframe. Our prayers and thoughts are with you and your family. We always remember the good times we had during the ball playing days with Curtis. One can never forget your smiling face when we met anywhere. If there is anything we can do to help, please don’t hesitate to ask. God Bless
