    To Ken’s family,

    I’m so sorry to learn about Ken’s death. His passing is certainly quite a loss. We were teenage friends from Livingston. He was a great guy and we had a lot of memorable time together. Prayers for you to have strengths to endure the difficult times ahead, and may fond memories help to ease the sadness.
