Sincere condolences to you and your family on the death of Ken. I remember him well from Hickman Mills Bank, always greeting everyone with a smile and a helping hand. He was also a great asset to Belton Regional Medical Center with the generous volunteering duties he performed.

Know that I am praying for you and your family during this difficult time.

You sister in Christ,
