    I loved my brother more than words can say, followed him like a puppy when we were children, and wrote to him every day while he was in Vietnam. I saw the havoc the war wreaked on him and I know the man who came back from there was not the boy that left to go. He served his country well. He took the time to teach me to shoot a gun, fish, ride horses and always, always had time to talk to me. I’m going to miss him. I love him.

    I will carry thoughts of my Uncle Ken with me forever. I am grateful for all the things he taught to me as a young man. There aren’t enough words to express how I’m feeling, I loved him and his quiet careful way. Though time and distance kept us apart for many years I’ve always admired the way he carried himself. I’ll be praying for you and the boys Aunt Rea. Godspeed Uncle Ken, may you find peace.

    I lived next door to Ken’s grandmother and used to visit when we were all kids…loved to ride the pony with Vivian…Ken was a quiet, thoughtful and intelligent guy…I am so sorry to hear of his passing…

    Please accept my sincere sympathy on the loss of Ken. May you find comfort in the Bible hope of a resurrection as found at Acts 24:15..
