Uncle Ken, thank you for always staying in touch and sending gifts and words of encouragement when your sis was in the nursing home. Mike and I appreciated your opening up your heart and home to us and for loving us with all your heart! I truly wish we had lived closer and could have spent more time together. I will miss you dearly!

Ken, You were a very special friend to me when I was experiencing some difficult times with both of my parents in the nursing home. I will always remember the times I spent at your house watching Braves baseball, and talking with you. You made me laugh when I needed it the most. Your sense of humor and generosity will be greatly missed. I felt at home
and and ease when I was at your house. You were my stress reliever. I will always be grateful to you for that. May God's blessings be with your family during this difficult time.
