Dear Lynne and Jared, I am so sorry for your loss. The world has lost a great man and it is a very sad day for all of us that had the privilege of knowing Ken. There are so many great memories that I have from Ken and your family. He was a true leader and will be forever in my heart.

Dear Lynne and Family. My heart is saddened by the news of the Loss of your beloved Husband/Father/Grandpa. May Ken Rest in the Lords arms and Know that he is now at peace. No more pain and suffering. Remember he is only a memory away from you all. He will be that bright shining star you see in the night sky. That soft gentle breeze you feel on your cheek and the warmth in your heart. Sending you love and prayer. Donna.

Lynne – I’m so sorry for your loss, and sorry that I only heard of it now. I remember so well the courage you showed when you and Ken first found out about his cancer so many years ago. I was just a kid in your class then, only 12 years old, but it stood out as a true example of love, strength and courage that I have hoped to live up to as I grew older. You taught me as much by example as I ever learned from a book in your classroom. I wish there were words I knew that might make this time easier. May his memory be a blessing.
