    My condolences to Barbara and all of Kenny's family. He was a great person and for years, one of my best friends. We graduated from Poquoson High School together and years later we both worked for NASA. Kenny was a groomsman in my wedding and I have many memories of road trips we took to see the Redskins play. Kenny will be missed by us all.
