    Dear Fran, Mary Miller just told me about Ken's passing. I was so sorry to hear about it. I used to visit you and Ken back in the 1980's when I would come over from Altamonte Springs. Please take care. I'm sure Ken is visiting George and Bernice in heaven. Sincerely, Carol

    Fran, We were so sorry to learn about Kenny's passing. You know that we have a lot of good memories of him from all the years that you all lived on Hope Avenue. I'm sure he and my parents are now together playing poker and enjoying a good beer. Our deepest sympathy, Dave and Mary Lee

    Dad - I will miss you. I know we had so many good memories, and then some bad, but I love you and
    pray that you are at peace with yourself. I wish I could have spent more time with you during your final
    year on this earth, but it wasn't meant to be. I
    hold you very dear to my heart.

    I remember golfing with Ken all those fun filled years. He was a true friend and I will miss his company , both on and off the golf course.
