So sorry for your loss! Let me introduce myself for those who don't know Aunt Mary ( Williams.) I am her daughter Carol Williams. My mother and Kem's father were brother and sister. My sisters are Grace (deceased), Erma Jean & Pat. We all send our sympathy and prayers to you and your family.
I feel really bad that I din't see the obituary until Monday morning. It was too late for me to make the trip from Strongsville to Chesterland.
I remember visiting the family in Cleveland. I did not enjoy going into Cleveland. It smelled! Once and a while they came to Strongsville, to the country, as it was then.
I enjoyed the movie. Thank yo for putting that up. I will let Jean and Pat know so they can watch it.
If you have questions about family history let me know. I am on Wheeler's Ln. in Strongsville.
Again please accept our condolences.

Ken was my childhood friend. We lived next door to each other on 78th St. We spent hours playing canasta...once we had a card marathon that lasted all summer! When his mom worked at a glue factory, she brought some home. We rolled newspaper into logs, securing them with glue, making a whole town during the summer. (We didn't think to sniff the glue! - we were just good kids) He and I gave his dog a haircut....and caught heck for that! Then there was the band! Ken came alive with that guitar! We had so many jam sessions in our garage! What fun we had!!!
Rest in peace Kenny! (Sorry I can't come to his wake/funeral...I have a broken foot)
