"To Kenny and all of you that support The AWARE Foundation, I will never be able to say thank you enough for your support as we went through this nightmare to locate my granddaughter. I have never met you Kenny but your online support, care and prayers have helped me through some dark times.

Thank God for YOU! I have so much admiration for you and your organization. I will forever be an advocate for the missing and hope that someday I can dedicate all of my time to locate lost family members. Until then my online support will be 100%."
