Few people have touched so many people during their lifetime, Ken was one of those people.If you ever met him you had a true friend for life. I was blessed to have him as a friend for fourty years and i will truly miss him, He now has the honor of soaring with the eagles at the right hand of his Lord and Saviour. Go in peace old friend and i look forward to the day we will meet again.
