"I remember a couple of years before Ken died he came to visit on his motorcycle.  I hadn't seen him for years and he said almost immediately on first seeing me "Don't give up before the Miracle happens!".  I will never forget his saying this at that quite wonderful moment of seeing Phoebe's father again after so many years.  I hope they are together getting to know each other better.  All blessings and love to both of you super charming and dear people."

"I had the pleasure to meet Kenneth just recently at Tari's condo. He was a kind soft spoken, lovely man to meet. I know he is now in heaven with his mother, and is looking down apon us and saying that he is in a much better world now and not worry. My deep heart felt thoughts and prayers go out to his family in getting by these coming days and years."

"My Uncle Kenneth was one of the most relaxed guys I have ever met. I can honestly never remember him being mad or upset. He loved his kids, riding his motorcycle, fishing, hunting, and telling a great story. I can't explain his sense of humor because it was like no one else's. I didn't know him super well but I knew how lucky I was to have such a wonderful loving man in my family. It was not easy"
