We were so fortunate to see Ken on our last trip to Gainesville. Any years ago Ken and our son were running buddies so he has a special place in our hearts. We live in Florida and hope to come to any service but have a lot of conflicts at this time. If we don’t make it just know we will be there in spirit and love.

Lisa, there is nothing I can say or do to make your pains go away. However you are a woman of faith, cry out to your Father in Heaven, God. He hears us, loves us and wants us to lean on Him. You will see Ken again in a far better place than here. You know that if you ever need me I'm here for you. God Bless and Keep You.

I have known Ken since I was a little girl. I remember once when I was younger he was babysitting me and my siblings. I had left my sandals in the yard and he ran them over with the lawn mower. He just laughed and laughed at me. Fly high Ken. You will be missed by many! Lisa, you are in my thoughts and prayers!
