To the entire family, I am so sorry for your loss. My heart hurts with this news. I spent countless nights with Kelly as a teenager and I have fond memories with Ken and Jeri. Especially our camping trip at Houston Woods and eating breakfast with him when he would come in from work from his shift at the station. I still cannot see a smoke detector and not think of Ken and the laughs we shared. I regret that i didn't take the time to stop to see him on my numerous trips down Broadway street. Love and prayers to you all.
