What a shock to read Ken's obit in the paper this morning! He and his family were here at Holly Brook to see me about a month ago.
Mary, Nancy, and family, this expresses my deep sorrow and my condolences. I pray God will comfort you knowing we will see Ken again in a much better place. Ken was a good friend from both work and church,
