I pray that God will make your hearts light and joyful as you recall all your wonderful memories of Kenneth.
I would like to share a few of my memories. Your family will probably not remember me, but I remember Kenneth's parents and family with some very fond memories, thanks to my departed father and brother, Verlon and Gale Ball.
I was a very small girl when daddy worked for Neal. He would come home sharing intersting and funny stories of things he and Neal, Kenneth, and Larry had said and done. Then, Gale grew up and was associated with Kenneth and his company for a time.
As a young girl, I was smitten with Kenneth's good looks. I remember when he married and shortlty afterward, Dad, Mom, and I were invited to dinner at their tiny apartment on the north side of Ft. Smith.
I was so pleased when Kenneth came to Gale's funeral in Nov,1996. He was like a warm comforting memory from years past. Then, when dad passed in August of 2000, I contacted Kenneth and asked him to be a pallbearer and he graciously consented.
My husband, Don, and I were freight brokers and in need of a crane service to help load some heavey equipment, and of course my first thought was Kenneth. We called him, and again he graciously consented, and broutht his crane to our assistance. We had the opportunity to sit and visit with him in our office one day, and we shared funny stories and lots of laughter from those years past, when daddy was building such good memories in my mind of the Beam family. I will never forget.
