Dear Nancy & sons,
Ken was a good neighbor and friend. There were times that we enjoyed some good times and baseball games. Pat and I are pretty much confined to the house. The boys help us out quite a bit.
Our doors are always open to you all should you like to visit.
There's a lot of good and nice things we remember about Ken and his family and would be happy to share them with you where a laugh or tears may occur.
Last, but not least, we know he's in the best of hands now...and that is with GOD...our Lord and Savior.
God Bless,
The Bullington's

Nancy, I'm so sorry to hear of Ken's passing on. He was certainly a good man who I was proud to know as a friend for quite some time, even though we hadn't seen each other in the past several years. I worked with him both at the Powder Plant and Humana. He was held in the highest esteem by all who knew him, even though he did talk to much about baseball! He will be missed by many.
Sincerely, Charlie Hefley

Dear Nancy and Family,
Didn't know Ken personally but he was married to one of the sweetest women I've come to know. From what I understand he was a wonderful man and has really suffered these last few years. I know the loss isn''t easy but when we look at the overall picture and know where he is, than we can rejoice in our sorrow. Love and Prayers, Bunny Gleason
