    Dear Joan and family,

    Our sincere sympathy to each of you.

    Our memories of Kenny are many, visiting with each other in Pa and FL and building a true best friend relationship that lasted for over 45 years, and having so much fun and laughter throughout those years.

    Helping us build our first house.

    We'll never forget flying (driving) down Rte 10 to go to White House Beach, Delware because we had to get there on time.
    Never forget going deep sea fishing and Scot turning green till Kenny got him back to dry land.

    We have memories of times spent together that could fill pages.
    Those memories of a best friend will always have a special place in our heart.

    God Bless you Joan and family,

    Scot and Janet Griesemer

    Joan, I am so sorry to hear about Ken's passing. I remember our time together riding motorcycles with the Tuesday group. I also remember going to your 50th wedding anniversary at the community center in your development. Kenny will be missed greatly by the members of the Eagle Ridge Rider's.
