It's been about a year since Kenny wrote his last post. I still don't know how he died. If anyone out there knows, I'd appreciate them commenting here. I doubt I'd be much comforted, in any case, because I know he died suddenly (here's his obituary) and he was only 62 and didn't drink, smoke, and was a vegetarian.
Kenny was a wonderful writer, and if you've never had the pleasure of visiting his website, please do because it was very informative. I still check it from time to time to see what people on his blogroll have to say. Most of my internet traffic from back then was due to the fact that I was listed on that blogroll. I've never met Kenny in person but on-line he was really important to me -- he was pretty much my "imaginary audience" -- every time I posted something, I'd think, "would Kenny like this article?" I still think about him all the time. Say hi to God for me Kenny. Rest in peace.
Scott from American Everyman left a comment, saying that he heard Kenny suffered a massive heart attack after doing yard work and didn't suffer. I guess that's about the best way to go, if not in your sleep. Thanks, Scott, for letting us know.
