Memories of Kenny:
As a graduate of the class of '59, I have been alerted to all of the wonderful reunion events Kenny Hedgepeth put together and worked upon. Countless hours were spent by him selflessly to make our memories strong and real, full of friends and joy. I did not have the pleasure of meeting him, but let me say his person played a large part in the friendship world. To his family, my deep regrets at his passing. We can all say a thanks to him when we meet in his beautiful new space.
