    I worked with Kenny at Olan Mills. He was a great guy, he would help anyone. I know he loved his family and friends.
    I know that Kenny went though a lot to kill the cancer, what a strong guy and Karen you are strong lady to go though what you did to fight the fight, and I bet his family did the same.
    But God had plan and wanted Kenny to be with him now.
    We will surely miss him. Karen I will be praying for you and your family for you to have strength and understanding. love ,Esther

    I never knew you, we share the first and last name proper. I foremost want to tell your family and friends God bless and they are in my thoughts and prayers. There is a lot of us Ryals floating around in Waco. My goal is to let us know how that last name which is rare has rich heritage. Be proud, stay strong and know we are RYALS!!
