Tom and I echo the feelings of Lourdes about the wonderful family Ken and Carolyn raised. Being a part of this family as aunt and uncle has indeed been a blessing. We are so sorry we cannot be there to share in this time of sorrow because of Tom's surgery. We have so many wonderful memories of times with Ken. Love to all, Tom and Pattie

Dear Ken with Carolyn his wife raised a wonderful family of five. I'll remember Ken dancing with Carolyn to the tunes of Glenn Miller in Kirk and Patty's wedding! An unforgettable person to know. He is now enjoying the Lord and his loved ones.

Our love and prayers go to Carolyn and all the children.
