I sure miss you coming in the door ready to play a few hands of cards with Wayne and then cleaning up the mess the next day.

You are in the Good Lord's Hands Now and may you rest in peace.

You will be so missed!

I have had the pleasure of knowing Ken (Papa)for many years - he was always like a father to me - it's hard to imagine him not coming into the office any longer - Papa we love you and miss you terribly.

Kenny was a great friend. He always worked hard for his customers. He and Dotty were a pleasure to be with. Plus it is very easy to love a man you can beat at gin.
