Dear Uncle Kenny,

We've never met, because you died before I was born. When I was 6 years old, I remember asking Grandma Kline who that picture was hanging over the staircase. She told me it was you and that you are in Heaven.

As the years passed I have kept you in my thoughts. Every chance I had to visit Washington D.C., I would make it a purpose to go to the Vietnam Memorial Wall and trace your name on a piece of parchment paper and mail it to Grandma Kline. But now that Grandma is no longer with us but with you in Heaven, you can keep each other company!

You gave the ultimate sacrifice! You are my hero!
Hugs and Kisses, Uncle,
Your loving niece, Patrice
