Hi to all,
I just wanted to let any of you who were still waiting for t-shirts or memorial patches to know that the final orders are going out next week. If anyone else would like a t-shirt, memorial patch or GMS shop towel, I can order more, at any time. You can still reach me at 608-358-4418.
Thank you, to everyone, for your help and support as we stood by Kenny during his fight. And, thank you, for your kindness, as we shared our grief in having lost him. The first winter snow has hit in the city where I live, and it makes me think about what Ken would have been doing right now, if he hadn't gotten sick, and if he were still at home, enjoying a little down time during this off-season for the shop. It's funny how realities sink in, in waves, and how in mourning, the memories cycle round and back around, day after day. Just last weekend I was unpacking groceries on a Saturday night, and I thought to myself, I think I'll give Kenny a call after I get these put away. Like so many Saturday nights over so many years in the past. And then it hits. I'll never be able to chat with him on the phone, ever again. I just miss him. I know we all do.
Thank you, for everything.
