So very sorry to see such a kind and young man leave this world.  My best memory of Kenton, was when my son married Emily Anderson and we had just lost my husband that year.  He comforted my two daughters Katie and Jayne as they ... as Kenton said, "needed a daddy hug".  What a kind and caring thing to do.  Me and my daughters will never forget him.  Gone too soon!  May God bless his family every day.
