If I could speak to my father one more time, I’d thank him. I’d thank him for teaching me by example from a very young age how not to treat a woman who you are married to.
I’d thank him for teaching me by example how not to raise children under fear and intimidation. I’d thank him for showing me by example how to put on a show and a front to everyone in the world who doesn’t live under your roof, to make it look like all is perfect and you do no wrong. And I’d thank him for teaching me that a beautiful,strong, wonderful mother can and will make up for all of his short comings. Rest is peace father. I’m quite sure you need it...

Mr. Ken was so very sweet to me at Coldwell Banker Wallace & Wallace. He made popcorn when he was here in the afternoons and he always shared with us girls at the front desk. He also had a bowl of chocolates on his desk that he had to replenish often because we took some everyday, but we know he didn't mind. He always remembered to text me on my birthday and to tell me Merry Christmas. I think of him often and he will be missed.
