Our hearts are broken due to the loss of our lifetime friends. Kenny Ray and LuAnn were perfect for one another! Their love for other was undeniable. Kenny Ray and Bob have shared so many farming stories. Bob enjoyed fishing with Kenny , this time of the year. LuAnn loved her Kenny Ray, her mom, and her cats! Whenever we spoke, it was always of all three. Our thoughts and prayers go out to their families during this difficult time. Brad, Carla, and Gail…if we can do anything for you, we will.

Gail and family I am without words at this point. My heart is so heavy for the lost of Kenny Ray and LuAnn. They were both very nice people. I remember Kenny Ray and my dad (Snowbaby) working together on the farm. I would always see LuAnn at the drugstore whenever I would go to pick up meds. Please know that God makes no mistake. You and your family will always be in my prayers.
