Dear Helen,
When Ken joined the River Club, I was fortunate to play his first round with him. It was great fun. I knew we would be good friends ( despite the fact that he beat me) and we were. I will miss him as will so many others at the Club.
God be with you,
Bob Fasulo

Helen, it is with deep sympathy that we sign this guest book. As we walked the neighborhood early every morning, we enjoyed seeing Ken going out for his early morning golf jaunts. He always waved and had a kind word to say. Please accept our prayers and well wishes to you and the family. We are unable to attend the funeral because Patricia is having surgery on Wednesday. But know we are with you in heart and spirit. May God comfort you at this time. With love, Jo and Patricia, neighbors on Cascade Falls Drive
