    I still miss kenny alot and i’m still trying to grieve for him.just the other day i thought about giving him a call just to hear his voice again would be great.every once in awhile his spirit comes to visit me whether it is pulling the back of my chair when no one else is around.or recently he cupped my foot over the covers and i always get a warm feeling when that happens.recently i was hospitalized over night for many medical conditions i was hospitalized on 12-23-2014 and god gave me a miracle on christmas eve to change all my vital signs back to normal and i got to go home .i didn’t understand my illness at the time until i looked it up and found out i was on the verge of cardiac arrest the dr. even agreed it was weird now i’m getting better.i guess its not my time to be with him yet and i have a renewed sence of peace and wanting to make the best of my life and cherish my family.i love you kenny forever
