I am so sorry for your loss. Mr. Kennedy used to cut my son’s hair at the barber shop starting when he was 5 years old. He is now 22! Mr. Kennedy was always so kind and warm to my son had a great way at making him at ease and putting a smile on his face. When i saw the post in the paper I said to myself. I know that man and the last sentence proved it as his long time love of cutting hair.
May you RIP
Miss Forney think of him often
