Mr. Kenny,

    Sir, I didn't know you, but I would just like to say thank you for your years of dedicated service and sacrifice for our Country when you served in the U.S. Navy, especially during WW II. And to your family and loved ones, I wish to extend my deepest sympathy.

    The Manhattan College alumni community shares your grief, and is now praying for our fellow alumni and the family at this time. The Alumni Office has been informed. As well as the Jasper Jottings community that I personally can reach. We are all a little poorer now. "No man is an island, entire of itself … any man’s death diminishes me". We are sorry for your loss.
