Mother (Tessie Colley Kennedy) had nine children. Now that brother Brent is gone, Nera (in Florida), Ruby (near Richmond), and I (in Florida) are the only three still living. Brent was #8, and I am #9. I was proud to represent Mother and all nine of her children at the funeral and graveside service. Health issues prevented Nera and Ruby from attending. I send love, healing, and blessings to all. Doyle Kennedy, 386.427.4045, New Smyrna Beach, FL

Doyle: So sorry to have missed Bret as I have had problems myself for the last few years. We are still trying to prove that GGgrandpa was a Melungeon being born and living in Buncombe and Jackson counties of N. C. It is a true honor to Bret to have so many believe in him and his writings. Again my regrets and God Bless to all. GL
