Mr. Ken was one of my favorite people. I only knew him in his later years, but his stories and love of life always left me feeling encourage and grateful for what and who I had in my life. Dispite my not being able to visit with him in this last year, my memories of him remain fresh. My heart and prayers go out Ann.
