Ken was a wonderful man to observe. He was always calm and steady, and ready to help anyone. He was a great Dad, and a loving and kind husband to his sweet wife. Ken knew the Lord, and loved Him, and I know that Ken is with Him right now. I feel honored to have known him, and I send love to all of his family, and am praying that God comforts them when grief is new.
