I met Ken on Dauphin Island, we became friends instantly and worked on two message board websites together. I have one of the fine grill tables he designed and built, and it will certainly outlive me. Ken was a rock solid man. I'm a better person for having known him. My condolences to those who knew and loved him. We will all miss him. God Speed Ken K.
