, Very good description of our Buddy. But, I would say extremely funny, extremely kind and extremely accomplished
The Ancient Mariner was "The" guy to hire for kitchens and custom cabinetry on Long Island. Besides the quality work, you knew you were dealing with a quality person who was honest and just plain fun to be with. When realtors were selling a house, they would be sure to mention to the perspective buyer that the home had a "Kitchen by Kennedy".
When I mentioned to Bill that I was redoing my kitchen, he offered his help with the design, free of charge. No fancy computer drawings, he did it all by hand. All I had to do was take his drawings to my cabinet supplier and place the order. And I assure you, his design was light years ahead of the computer drafts I had already received.
When I handed Bill's design over, some of our email exchanges were mixed in with the drawings. Naturally the emails were filled with Bill's quick wit and words of wisdom. I went back to the cabinet supplier a couple weeks later and caught one of the girls using Bill's lines with her customers. I couldn't stop laughing.
So, Besides having a dear friend in St. Pete's, I can proudly say, I am the only person in NEPA with a Kitchen by Kennedy! He will probably want to kick my butt for posting this. I'll just have to stay outta St. Pete's for a while.
God Bless Zio!......Here's hoping Old Notre Dame goes all the way this fall.
