To Phyllis and all the Glover family. I wish you God's comfort and strength. Ken was a very good christian man. I had much respect for him and he had such a good heart. His laughter was genuine as was his faith. He will be missed by many!!

I remember my dad (Glen) talking about how well he and Ken worked together as elders at East Peoria. I know that they endured good and bad times together while leading smelly sheep. Our lost here is heaven's gain.
