Vicki,Pam, Terri….We are so saddened by the loss of your Dad. Kenny was such a nice man. He always gave me a big hug and would always ask about my Mom and Dad. It is never easy to lose a parent…. But to lose both within months is unthinkable! You all are in our thoughts and prayers! God bless! The Riggle family
