  1. Kendall’s family…there will be prayers and remembrances of a childhood spent with Kendall. Our families worked together, Kendall was my best friend as a youngster. We spent many days and nights together, sleeping over with buddies, all of us mischievous in some way. I was very fond of him, tough little fellas we were…I will always remember him…
    Warmest regards… Robby Snyder
