Steve Schinsky, owner of the Crossroad Cafe in Downtown North Baltimore, Ohio, posted the following to Facebook – with information about a benefit Henry’s final expenses.
Hello everyone, whats on my mind? Henry Kenney is what’s on my mind. He passed in his sleep this last weekend. He left us way too soon. His friendship was enjoyed by many. Henry’s smile and hillbilly twang touched the lives of of an entire community. He was loved by all and will be truly missed. Crossroads Cafe will not be the same without him delivering our meals to the community.
Now whats important, Henry’s wife has been left with final expenses that are beyond her means. Carrying out Henry’s final wishes to be cremated and sent home are more than she can afford. Henry was always the first guy to drop everything and help a stranger if needed. It time for us as a community to come together and do what Henry would have done for any of us.
Crossroads Cafe is having a benefit day on March 29th to help raise enough money to carry out Henry’s final wishes. My staff and Myself will be volunteering our labor the entire day as well as giving Mrs. Kenney 50% of all sales generated on that day. Everything we have, on our regular menu as well as our Special that day will be included.
Ironically the special that day is one of Henry’s favorites, our Tiger Bowl. Mashed potatoes, Corn, Chicken Gravy, Boneless Chicken Chunks, Sprinkled with Monterrey Jack Cheese. The one Henry called Tager Bow in that crazy West Virginia slang.
Please make room in your Hearts and stomachs for a good cause.
I will also be selling raffle tickets for party platters, gift certificates, cookies, and meals. Please come in.
