I always enjoyed when Kenneth came back to Missouri. To visit with my grandpa and my uncle Danny. The last time I saw him we talked about the squirrels around his house in Colorado. I'm going to miss him.

Ken has made his one last flight. He would stop by after a trip to Missouri & share his home grown tomatoes & black walnuts. He enjoy my simple farm food & always happy to eat the Rhubarb Crisp & Black Walnut Cookies. We understood what being "Country" meant. Glad your pain is gone & send thoughts of love to the Coffee family.
