Carol, I am so sorry. To know Ken was to love him and I'm thankful for the times we had together - times when it felt like we were all family. I still have the funny poem he wrote me during a transition phase of my life. He was a blessing to everyone whose life he touched. Sending much love and many prayers your way.

Jay and family,
Your dad was one of the nicest, kindest men I've ever had the privilege of knowing. He always had a great smile for you. Danna got to know him when they shared a hospital room together. We are saddened that we won't be able to attend the funeral because of a commitment in Pittsburgh this weekend. Please know that you are in our prayers. Mary
