    Susan, our sincere and deepest sympathy for the loss of your beloved son Ken. We will always remember Ken with fond and loving memories. One of our most cherished thoughts is his smile. He always had the brightest smile for everyone; it lit up the room. Every time you came to visit with us he would come up our walkway with the biggest smile and bubble with excitement seeing our children; his cousins and it was a special bonus for him if our grandchildren were visiting and he would always want to play with “little” Jimmy (who now is not so little at 27 yrs old) and Jimmy loved playing with Ken. He brought such joy to our family and we will always remember him with love and affection. We know that God has his brightest angel at his side and will place him in the heavens as his brightest Star and Ken will be watching us all. He lit up our lives and touched many others with that beautiful “smile” Ken…we will see you again. Love Auntie Elaine and Uncle Jimmy
