    Kenny was a wonderful human being and friend. I will never forget sitting in Sir Winston as a child as my father tried on suits, and then later, as an adult dropping by to purchase my own suits. Kenny would always tell wonderful stories about the races at Aksarben, some local political intrigue (Kenny was never shy about sharing his opinions), or how my father and he – in their younger, single days – would stay out all night, and then enjoy champagne for breakfast. Sir Winston felt like a second home – Kenny welcomed everyone with open arms and always had drinks and snacks…he wanted everyone to be comfortable. I cannot believe I just saw him in August and he looked healthy and happy. It is difficult to think about Omaha without him. I will miss him.
