We just learned of Ken’s passing. Ken was a tenant who lived in our building for several years. We knew him as a very kind and gentle soul who was honest and hard working. He was a pleasure to work with and always greeted us with a warm smile. We are sorry to hear of his passing and our prayers go out to his family and friends.
