    The discus world has lost a truly honorable ambassador and a dear friend, and we were shocked and deeply saddened when we read your post, Al. Kenny's legacy will live on in all of our hearts and tanks, as many of us here are blessed to be able to express our gratitude to Kenny every day when we enjoy the beautiful fish he brought into our lives.

    It is thanks to the SimplyDiscus community that I discovered Kenny's Discus. My family is fortunate enough to live close to the Bay Area, and we are grateful for our time spent with Kenny in his fish room, talking about our shared passion for these amazing fish. Kenny's kindness and friendly, professional nature are well-known. He was always willing to share his knowledge and expertise, and his ability to communicate humbly and compassionately made every encounter feel like catching up with an old friend.

    Kenny touched our family from the moment we met him. My son was 8-years-old at the time, we had started breeding discus as a fun bonding project, and we saw the monthly post here, picked out several fish, and placed our first order. When we arrived at his home in Daly City, Kenny recognized my son's interest in the hobby, asked him how old he was and told him that he also started raising discus at 8, he took the time to tell him all about the different fish in the room, showed him pictures of fish he had bred, encouraged him to keep breeding and exploring the hobby, and after bagging all our fish, he gave my son an incredibly large and gorgeous fish for free. Every moment we shared with Kenny is a treasured memory, and we feel very fortunate to be raising babies from adults that he picked out for us. Every morning we give thanks for the opportunity to have met such a gentle soul, and we strive to possess a measure of Kenny's humility, patience, and grace.

    Our prayers go out to everyone grieving. Peace and love to Kenny's family and friends.

    Right now we're at $5,755 - with a transaction completing this week, there should be another several hundred coming in. However, even after that we're going to be some $3,900-ish short of the $10k goal. I wish there was more I could do.

    I feel so obligated to make sure the Goal of $10.000 is met if not more! I'm a disabled vet and get paid once a month. I will be sending more soon! Kenny has done sooooooooooooooo much for the hobby and people in general! My mission is that We will make the same impression on his family as Kenny did to All of us at one point in time! I listen to his voice mails and cry. I have every single text from 2018 when Kenny and I met & I purchased my first 8 discus! I'm fairly lost as what I will do when I reach to call Kenny. I'll just say hello Kenny we ALL have your family taken care of and say hello to Heaven for us ALL! Love you bro!

    I'll make another donation as well. And have been pretty bummed since hearing he passed. I hope his family, and subsequently the community here are doing as well as they all possibly can.
