Mary Lou, I am so sorry for your loss. Ken was a wonderful Christian man. We loved it when he played the piano in the worship service. I still play his CD and I will never forget him. Love you

Mary Lou,
Mr. Ken was the best! He always had a smile and a wonderful hug for me whenever I saw him. I feel very blessed to have sang while he played the piano at the house. His 90th birthday party was so fun and shopping for his mini grocery cart was an enjoyment I will remember for a long time. When we prayed together I felt his faith in God everywhere around us. He was a beautiful person that I will miss and I'm sure he is playing the piano in heaven already. May the love of friends and your faith in God carry you through your grief.
