  2. Dear Kenny, Linda, Candy and family,
    As a child and teenager, I grew up attending the Landenberg Methodist Church with my parents (Anna and Elijah Dehorty) and I so remember your parents being so kind and friendly to me. These are the things that you remember as a kid and as an adult. Cherish your memories…….your Dad and your Mom were very special people. Praise God…..they are now reunited.
