Lora, I am so sorry to here of Ken's passing. My heart breaks for you. I remember when you both first met. It's been fun hearing about the wonderful trips, adventures and quiet times you had together. (No more fear of flying) I loved seeing the colorful art you both collected and loved helping you select some the perfect frames. Cherish these beautiful pieces, they show the love you and Ken had for each other. Such a happy, colorful and lively reminder of your precious time together. Lora, I'm wishing you and Ken's family many happy memories that bring smiles through your tears.
You know I'm praying for you all.

We always expressed to each other how lucky we were to be together. How lucky we were that we had met. How lucky we were to experience one adventure after another. How lucky we were to hold each other in our arms. I am a lucky woman to have been with such a dear, intelligent, wildly entertaining, and loving man.

Although our time together was cut short, I am forever grateful for the time we were given.

You are my best friend, my coziest cuddler, my confidant, and the love of my life. You will always be in my heart, and therefore my life.

Love you forever, Lora

Ken, you are a great brother. Thank you for letting me be part of your adventure. Say hello to Mom and Dad and give them a huge hug and kiss from all of us. We will all see you soon. Our lives are just a blink in time. I'm so happy I came to see you in October. Loved sitting on the porch and talking.

To Kenny’s Family
My friend Ken will be missed greatly, his enthusiastic laughter and wit was always enjoyable to be around. I was fortunate to travel with Ken on our trips for deep sea fishing, white water rafting, golfing and just traveling around and exploring. His positive outlook and friendly let’s get along attitude was always welcoming. He was so proud of his family and always talked about all of you. He accomplished so much and cared for all of us. I look forward to telling his stories and repeating his funny phrases. One of my favorites was when we would be golfing and I would be losing my golf ball. As I would be looking for my golf ball Kenny would say to me “Jimmy why do you think they sell them by the dozen , I don’t know I’m just the fire alarm guy” ? Fun and Happy guy that will always be in my heart.
