I am very thankful to have gotten to see Ken this summer. I got the cutest picture of him and my son. Ken always had a smile on his face and treated all of us (Kara’s friends) like he was our Dad. He was so funny. He will be greatly missed. We love you Kara, Lauren and Amaris. We will always be here for you. Love, Nay and Car

While I never had the privilege of meeting John in person, there’s a part of me that felt like I did through the stories shared by his daughter, Kara. Over the years that we work together, it was common for her to share how her dad was doing along with stories of his spirit and strength. He lived a life well lived and lives behind three strong women in Kara, her sister, and Amaris. My heart goes out to the entire family. I will keep all of you in my prayers.
