  1. My Dear Karen, So very sorry to read of Ken’s death. I am going to try to get to the memorial service on Friday and hope to be able to visit for a bit then. Dick passed away last November, it was pretty hard on the kids, so understand what you are going through. All my love to you. If we don’t connect tomorrow, Please call me. I’ll leave my number at Wyuka.

  2. Our thoughts and prayers are with you. We regret we can’t attend your service, but are wishing peace for your family.

    We love you Uncle Kenny!

    Mike and Judy
