  1. Mrs. Kennerson and Debbi, Shawn & Amy and families,
    I am so sorry about Mr. Kennerson. I would have come out to Honeoye but I did not know until this past Saturday (14th) when my mom told me-they were away and didn’t tell me before they left. I usually do read the obituaries online. Mr. K. was a great man, dad, and teacher. I have many happy memories of babysitting on Thursday nights while M/M K. played volleyball in a league. I still can NOT do a somersault or any gymnastics! I was glad to see M/M K. when I worked for a few months in the school library in Honeoye and when Mrs. K. gave a presentation in the Brighton/Westfall cabin. Love to you all! Laura McCrank Viau PS Shawn, my daughter’s name is Valerie!

  2. Deepest Condolences on the passing of Uncle Chuck.
    Praying for Peace for you all.
    Your Neice & Cousin,

  3. Debbie and family,
