Thank you SO much for all the great music, Ken. Thank you for the friendship and thank you for obliging a die hard fan by signing every single item I had in my collection. I will treasure them ALL forever. My thoughts are with Linda and the girls.

Ken Thorne was one of my favorite composers with Hannie Caulder a particular favorite. Thanks for many hours of enjoyment. Condolences to his family. He will be missed but always remembered.
