I wish to express my sympathy to the Casey family, especially to Kenneth Scism and Little Miss Jade. I had no idea that Mr. Casey was your Grandfather. I know you will miss him very much, but be strong in the Lord and you will surely be with him again one day soon.

I am saddened to hear of the passing of Kenneth Casey. In knowing Kenneth for 20 years through business, he always made me feel welcome (as long as I came with hats, pens, shirts, etc...). I am thankful for his Christian witness and our shared belief in Christ. I am praying for the family and business associates at Casey Well Drilling.

Kenneth and I were life long friends. We played together as small boys in Bumpus Cove some sixty some odd years ago.Kenneth always had a smile on his face and was an easy going person. He loved his family and will be missed greatly. May God bless each and everyone left to cherish his memories. I would think Kenneth is somewhere up in heaven looking down with that big smile on his face. I hope to get there one day myself.

I love my Casey Family so much. I would call Uncle Kenneth and he was always a gentle loving teddy bear full of humor and God. He was my rock in many ways since my mother Shirley went to heaven in 1992. I'm really going to miss the phone calls and walking in shop and seeing him behind his desk dedicated to the Family business my papaw and his Dad Raymond started in 1932. I'm really going to miss you " Hello Darling".
