Dear Pat:
I have been reminiscing with my husband about Kenneth lately since the summer. I talked about how he taught me to water ski, took us flying in the plane, loved old Fords, taught me to tube the Guadalupe, and put Randy and me on a steam locomotive train ride to Silverton, Colorado when we were up at the cabin.
He sure was nice to me and to Randy, as of course were you. I started thinking about him in August and talking about him. I haven't been able to get him off my mind so I searched online and found that he had passed.
I know you must be sad and lonely without him. I am sorry for your loss...more than I can say.
I wish I had the chance to tell him that it meant a great deal to me that he played somewhat of a father or uncle figure in my life at a time when that was very much appreciated.

He was a nice man, with a fun-loving spirit. He and you were quite a hospitable pair and I thank you both for including me in your family during my late teens.
I have missed you both and hope that you will get in touch. My email address is Deborah@ResourceByDesign.com.

Thanks partly to Ken's encouragement, I went to law school, became an HR Director and have had a nice career. I most recently returned to school to get a PhD in Clinical Psychology. I got some of this can-do attitude from you and Ken. I remember you studying for your CPA exams and admired your pluck and determination and also, of course, his dedication to his profession and the pursuit of travel and worthwhile hobbies.

One of the many nice things that he did was to loan Randy his blue Cadillac to take me to my prom. That was so sweet of him and it made the evening really special.

Blessings to you and Randy and his family.
Sincerely,
Deborah Nance (formerly Debbie Watkins)

Kenneth and I went to school together Hogg Jr. High school. We were always in the same home room since our names started with a W.Good ole Heights family. He was always very nice to me and I remember his brother Frank as well. Sorry I didn't know him as a doctor but I am sure he was a good one. Memories are the best.

Uncle Kenneth,

I will never forget the good times that we had. I know that you are looking down at us with your mother and father. You were the doctor, uncle and the protector to my mother, me and my sisters. You will be missed.

Uncle Kenneth:

You were my doctor, my uncle, my mentor and the keeper of my crazy life for a while in my teens... thank you so much for everything you did for me, for my family and most recently, for my ailing father. Who would have ever believed that you would be the first sibling to leave? I guess you just had to go ahead and make sure everything was prepared for the rest of us... You will be greatly missed in all of our lives... I never got to thank you for driving Shannon back home last month, but I really appreciated it. You shuttled her back home just like you used to do for me when I was her age and visited you and Pat in San Antonio... thanks for the airplane rides, for teaching me how to water ski, for all the fun times at the lake and in Colorado and for all the crap you put up with from me when I was a stupid, rebellious teenager. I'll miss your great laugh and your caring ways.

Papa Doc, what words can express the loss that your passing has brought to me. You have always been the glue that held all our crazy lives together. You were always the first to show up in every situation be it good or bad. You were the first one to hold me when I was born and to the last time we talked, always had a kind loving word for me. I will always hold you in my heart. I love you and will miss you soo soo much.

Dr. Weeden was our family doctor when I was a child in the 60's. I haven't seen him since then but we never forgot him. I remember him as a very kind and caring man. Quite often over the years we have said we wish we could find a doctor like Dr. Weeden. We never have! It seemed that he always took the extra time to talk that made him special. He would always ask me about my Dad who was serving in Vietnam or school or whatever. He always cared! I'm sure that he touched many lives and will be missed.

Dr. Weeden was bigger than life! He was our family doctor in Spring Branch in the early 60's. I recall him making a house call when our entire family was ill with the flu.
The world lost a wonderful doctor and a fantastic human being, but heaven gained a new angel.
My condolences to the Weeden Family.

To Frank, Betty, and all I am very sorry for this loss. Be assured that he is with Jesus and the Saints. Betty and my late mother, Lucille, were cousins. Is there anything I can do to help? My prayers are with you all.
