Kenneth was our cousin and big brother in high school at Magnet Cove. One summer I rode around with him while he plowed grandpa's farm using an Allis-Chalmers tractor. He called the tractor "Alice" in true form of his humorous verbal inventions. We're so thankful that we got to see your family at the last reunion here at Magnet Cove. May God bless and sustain you.

Elaine, you and Ken have always had a special place in my heart. I treasure our lunches encouraging one another. I pray you will feel God's huge arms of love embracing you and holding you close to His heart today and in the days to come. I pray you and all of your family will feel God's presence, love, comfort and peace in special ways as you journey through grief together.

Elaine, Gary, Joseph and Nathan, I cannot even begin to express my sadness for your loss. I love Ken for the grandfather he has been to Joseph and Nathan! He taught them so much! Elaine, you and Ken always welcomed our family into your home, and we are forever grateful. May your happy memories of your lives with such a wonderful man be of comfort to you in the days, weeks, months, and years ahead. I love you all!
