I have so many fond memories which one do I choose. I suppose this is my favorite. When my mom and dad split up we went to live with Aunt Cleo and Uncle Kenny. After we moved out and had our own apartment, I would cry until Uncle Kenny would come to kiss me goodnight. I will never forget his smile, his sense of humor and how I know how much he cared about us all.
