In The Hole Golf

Amy Kenneley

A native Clevelander, Amy Kenneley writes about life in the city during her growing-up years. "I enjoy working with memories and creating an essay that, hopefully, will bring a smile or even a tear."

She also comments on current topics. "As the parade of life goes by, I imagine myself standing on the sidewalk making comments to someone next to me. Hopefully, the person next to me is you."

Amy Kenneley

She treasures: a loving husband, terrific children (and of course their superior choices in spouses) and wonderful grandsons to love. "Hugs to go around, friends to cherish, a healthy mixture of life's offerings-what blessings!"

Our condolences to Amy Kenneley and her family on the passing of her husband E. Michael Kenneley on January 5, 2012. "His booming laugh, good humor, and the solace of his presence among us" will be missed.
