I love you, Dad. Losing Mom was hard, no doubt about it... on you most of all... but losing you... there's just no way to properly describe it... devastating... I may not have always been the ideal Son, in everyone else's eyes, but in yours I knew I was always. You were my protector... As I lay here so long a time after you've gone... I just don't have words to say it all.... I love and miss the kindest, most humble, most giving, most Forgiving, and most God-ly human being I've ever known on this earth... He truly loved God and the Lord, Jesus Christ...and his family... and everyone for that matter. All who knew him know I speak the genuine literal truth... and all I can say is it was a profound miracle of God to be raised by such a man, and the world was made ever so much greater by his life, and more profoundly empty by his death... at least mine was.

To the family. So sorry for your loss. I knew Kenny from Cross Lanes back in the 70's. So did some of my family. Kenny was a sweet guy and will be missed. I've thought of him often over the years. He is with God and is at peace. Prayers for the family. Jean Beary

I'm saddened to hear of Brother "Bubby's" passing. I attended Glad Tidings with him before moving to Florida. He was always friendly and genuinely nice and kind hearted. My prayers for the comfort of his family.

I knew Ken and his family, Pribble, Kay and Barry, when they attended the Campbells Creek Nazarene Church. I will be praying that God will comfort and sustain each one of you as you grieve his loss. One day we'll all be reunited around the throne of God, and what a day that will be. Edith Baker

Dad, the world is a different place with you not in it. Even in our sadness, we know you are in the arms of our Father Almighty, and far from the pain and grief of this world. We love you Dad and Grandpa -- Kay and Kaycie
