We know Kenny is in a good place, tuning up to play with Frank Hicks, Ron Hughey, Jim Ringer, Gene Bluestein, Otis Pierce, Jeff George, Mr. Sanford, his school-teacher Natalie Bigelow and countless other musicians and artists. Kenny died suddenly Wednesday night of natural causes and was not in pain.
