Although we had just a short time to know Ben and Cassandra’s lovable dog, Kenny, he quickly became part of the family. On a Christmas visit from his Camp Lejeune base, Kenny visited Maine and enjoyed running in the open fields and woods with fellow canines Cookie and Rusty.
Sadly, Monday’s snow storm and fierce winds brought with it a tragic event. It was mid-afternoon when Kenny started running and lost his way. He ended up on the thin ice of Kezar’s middle bay, went in and despite tremendous efforts on his part, he was unable to return to shore.
The family would like to thank the Lovell Volunteer Fire Department for their courageous attempt to rescue Kenny. Mark Moulton, Rick Rhea, Scott Thomas, Tommie McKenzie, Jim Kiesman, Gene Spender, Eric Perkins and many others braved the bitter cold. We also want to acknowledge the assistance of Meryl Molloy, Sherri Bois and Dave and Judy Mills.
We will miss him dearly.
