I never met my Uncle Kenneth but my father would tell me about his memories of him when they were kids , Dennis passed on 2/7/2001 of the terrible genetic kidney problem PKD that seems to have almost destroyed the Hawkins line ! all of my siblings and their children all have it . i am the only one who was spared among my immediate family . i am curious if uncle Kenneth and his children also suffer from this ?
