    Dear Mr. & Mrs. McCurtain & Danny,
    We are so very sorry to hear of the passing of Kenny. We often would come across each other on our buying trips to Sutherlands to pick up materials for our individual projects. Those meetings were thoroughly enjoyed! Our thoughts and prayers are with your family. God Bless.

    THE FAMILY OF KENNY HAVE MY HEARTFELT SYMPATHY ON HIS PASSING. I followed Kenny as a young athlete at Forest Park. He was a great friend of all the students in his class. A disciplined young man who dedicated himself to God at an early age .He worked hard at everything he did.As a friend of my son who admired and spoke so often of Kenny and his successes I too knew Kenny was a very special young man. He will be missed by all who knew him.May he rest in peace. I know he sprinted to heaven with his always big smile.

    I just learned of Kenny passing, when I saw it posted on someone’s comment on FB. I googled it and found his obituary. I worked with Kenny in 1990 for a few years. He was an elder at our church and had his lawn business. He taught me how to run and take care of equipment and later made me a crew leader. He was the most gracious and appreciative boss I ever worked for. He challenged and thanked me. I am sad to hear of this news, but know that he entered into an Eternal Resting Place.

    I am so sorry for your loss of Kenny. I went to school with both Kenny and Danny but really came to know them both around our mutually shared faith in Jesus our Lord.
    I know for sure Kenny is around the throne of God praising his savior.
    God bless
