God looked around His garden

And found an empty place.

He then looked down upon the earth

And saw your tired face.

He put his arms around you

And lifted you to rest.

God’s garden must be beautiful

He always takes the best.

He saw the road was getting rough

And the hills were hard to climb,

So He closed your weary eyelids

And whispered "Peace be thine".

It broke our hearts to lose you

But you didn’t go alone,

For part of us went with you

The day God called you home.

"You pass through life not meeting many people as nice as Ken.  We enjoyed many adventures together, laughed a lot and when you needed help in any way Ken would be there.  He truly was a special friend to me and I will always miss him and cherish the many times we spent together. I just wish he was still here to do one more adventure,  laugh again and have one more beer together.
I send my love to his family."

"When I think of Ken, I can so clearly see his smile. He was one of the most joyful people I've ever known. Always ready with a joke, with the biggest grin reaching from ear to ear, he spread his happiness to everyone around him. What a great blessing to have known him.  To sweet Sandy and his family; please know that my heart breaks for you.  May you find comfort in your wonderful memories of him."

"Ken and I worked together for over 9 years. We had morning coffee over conversations about family, travel, and even politics. I can honestly say that even though Ken was a coworker, I also considered him a friend. He was warm, kind, considerate, and just a pleasure to be around. His family was the most important thing to him and he spoke of them often. I will deeply miss his laugh and his presence around the office and will always remember him as my "coffee buddy". Rest in peace my friend, and may God bless his family! - Jim Thulin"

"Ken and I go back at least 23 years.  Ken was a remarkable man and truly a best friend.  I felt like I could call him at any time and he would be there.  A kind, genuine,  and generous soul. I miss him already but will always have him in my memories for the rest of my life.

A poem I would like to share:

Those we love don't go away,
They walk beside us everyday,
Unseen, unheard, but always near,
Still loved, still missed and very dear.

That is how I feel about my dearest friend Ken"

"I wish I could be there to remember Ken's laugh, his wit, and his warmth. I pray that Ken is at peace, and I pray peace for Sandy, and the family. The hole left by his physical absence will forever change his children. I hope as the years pass, the significance of his memory will grow in the hearts of all he knew."

"What can I say about papa Ken that everyone don't already know, youwere a beautiful person inside and out. You showed my family unconditional love from the beginning. My children considered you as their papa and enjoyed spending time with you and Mimi. I was looking forward to spending some good time with you next month in Disney and I'm sad we won't be able to have you there with us physically but it eases my mind to know you'll be there in spirit and you are now pain free. The Lord couldn't have chosen a better Angel to have.. we willforeverLove and remember you papa ken RIP"
