I’m very sad he won’t be around anymore he was a very likeable person and truly was a genuine soul. We were so blessed to know him and I’m so grateful for all the years he made my mother and my children feel so loved. If I could’ve said more on our last conversation knowing it would be our last, I would have. I admired him so much as a person, a man, husband, father and grandfather. You will be missed the world is lacking a little glimmer because you aren’t in it anymore but knowing you was the best part! Gone but never forgotten. I know you are dancing now in heaven with Jesus just so excited to tell us all about the beautiful gardens and scenery. Love you much, did not have enough time with you. Maybe later in heaven we will all gather and play a big ball game with the whole family.Thank you Ken for loving my family and caring for us you were tough but you were such a good one I wish you could’ve stayed with us longer!
