I had the pleasure of meeting Kenny at the wedding of Danny and Sheila McNamaras daughter Kelly McNamara and my Godchild Todd Rodriguez. We enjoyed our time together. Kenny, Don, Danny and I talked for a long time.
I am from Marrero, Louisiana, just across the river from New Orleans. I am so sorry that I only had that one day with Kenny. Please accept my condolences.
