Dear Gumper family, I'm quite saddened to learn from my mother tonight that you have lost Kenny. And I'm sorry that I can join you to give my condolences in person, and to reminisce with you. Unfortunately I just returned to Maine yesterday from Gasconade County, and will not return until late next week. I wish you many fond memories of Kenny as you celebrate his life. All the best to all of you in the coming days! Scott Ruffner Bangor, Maine
