I met Ken in the mid 1980's in Leadership Texarkana and we became friends. Of course, with Ken being the great salesperson he was, I soon became a client, insuring my home and auto with his company. He also served on the Board of Directors of Awareness of Crime in Texarkana when I was Executive Director of the organization. He was one of the best board members and worked tirelessly to support ACT in all our fundraising and event planning. He was also on the Executive Board and used his leadership skills to support the endeavors of our agency. Ken supported many organizations that were near and dear to his heart and the Boy Scouts and many other groups benefited from his generosity and knowledge.

He and Carolyn were a great match and always had fun whether working together in the office or on one of their many trips. They were both devoted to family and loved their children and grandchildren immensely. They loved traveling to Little Rock and being able to watch Luke in sporting events and spend time with him.

Ken always showed interest in my family from the time we met in Leadership Texarkana. I'm sure his many clients over the years may have started as clients and became friends. And I believe many people started as friends and became clients as I did. Ken and Carolyn served as Communion Stewards at our church for many years, even when Carolyn was battling health issues. I will always cherish their friendships and great memories of their stories shared while stopping in the insurance office for a quick visit that usually turned into an hour or more. God Bless the Morehouse and Raney families in this time of loss. Gary and I will be praying for you.
