    My dad, John J Swartz, HAD midway grocery store and Service Station, was Clay’s cousin, which meant Kenny was my 2nd cousin. Funny thing was that I married Wayne Morgan who was Clay Morgan’s son and brother to Irene (but I don’t remember them calling her Irene). We use to go to the Kenny and Wayne’s grandparents for Christmas. There had to be 60 in their little house and it all seemed to work out. Oh, I loved those Morgan girl’s cooking.

      To all of Kenny’s family: So sorry to hear of Kenny’s passing. We only knew Kenny for a short time living at Crestview,but we enjoyed him so much and all the laughs we had sitting on his front porch. The day he left, it was never the same for many of us. Thanks to Kenny for letting me go crazy with my flower planting!! Sincerely Roy and Pat.
