Kenny was always so kind and cheerful. He was a good friend of my late husband, Larry Gilpin, Sr. They were friends for many years, and Jana was a good friend of Larry and mine -- Bena Clary -- this is how I met Jana. She is a wonderful person, and Larry shared so many memories of himself and Kenny. I am so sorry to hear of Kenny's passing. My thoughts and prayers are with Jana and the family during this difficult time.Grace J. Gilpin - June 7 at 4:12 PM
So sorry to learn of the death of Kenny. Through the years I certainly have bought a lot of treasures from Kenny. He was a walking book of knowledge and I always learned from him. May the family be comforted with good memories. Will miss his sales and stories. May each day bring healing for the loss.Dan & Carolyn Graves - June 6 at 3:01 PM
Jana & Family: Bea and I will certainly miss Kenny. His knowledge of all things antique and Civil War was incredible. The estate sales you and he conducted are legendary. But above all was the friendship we forged over the last 30 or more years, Please accept our sincere condolences for your loss. Bill & Bea Baab, Augusta.Bill Baab - June 6 at 9:40 AM
