Ken, we have so many happy memories of times spent with you and Katie.
The week with the two of you on our Alaska cruise was wonderful, and us dancing on the boat we'll always remember. Katie's sweet smile would light up a room. May God Bless you and your family in the weeks and months ahead.
Love, Carl and Faye
