Dear Kathy: Submitting my father's obituary to the Enterprise, I happened to see your mother's. I was touched to read that she was able to be with so many of her descendants in her final days.

I always appreciated Mrs. McKenney. She worked with my father at Farnsworth Middle School for many years, and she was always loving, warm, caring, and helpful. She made the atmosphere in the office positive as soon as one walked in. When my father passed, there she was with her smile and her hugs. I will miss Mrs. McKenney.
