    Susie, Amy, and all the rest of Ken’s family (both genetic and not),

    Words can’t describe how much my heart hurts for you guys. I am honored to have been able to take care of Ken and get to know you all; you are all extraordinary people that always filled the room with positivity – not an easy feat given the circumstances. And Ken was the biggest fighter I have ever encountered. 7W will be a different place in your absence. You will all be missed greatly.

    Love, hugs, and a raised glass,
    The Redhead

    I wish I could attend your Celebration of Life, however I have to work. I will be thinking of you and your family. Ken was a great guy and I am honored to have been able to share some time with you both.

    Love, Magic Margie

    Oh, Susie– we were so saddened to hear about Ken. Know that we’re thinking of you and sending our most sincere condolences. We will always remember our many Sunday pizza nights, your glorious parties, our shared birthdays and degrees, and Kenny’s always-ready smile. Many hugs, my friend!
