Eulogy for Kennedy :'(

I keep looking at the text of my Mum.

He is dead.

Fuck, man.

When I was 15 years old uncle Ray hugged me and said, "we've seen a lot of entertainers on the cruises - you are just as good. You should do that".

With that I decided on a career as a professional mentalist.

More than that, I decided to change my name and use uncle Ray's surname as mine.

Kennedy was born.

If it hadn't been for this guy I'd never have pursued entertainment as a career and I wouldn't have a name.

Last night I got the text off my Mum that the keystone to who I am and who I've become is gone.

It's making me wonder who I am and why I am.

Who are you? Why do you do what you do?

Uncle Ray Kennedy will live on through wonder, through doing the impossible, through bringing joy and using my skills to help people.

Just as he did throughout this awful degenerative condition he's fought for 20+ years.

- Ken 

P.S. I want to give a big shout out to everyone who joined EPIC over the past 7 days. I'm so pleased we get to work together and build the entertainment business you want, to serve you.
