the last time I openly spoke about my cousin Kenneth, was at the memorial service our family had for him last year at the time of his passing..At that time I was still in disbelief of his passing and really didn't know what i was feeling except a deep sense of obligation and concern for our family..Just today I heard an old song that in a funny way inspires me.. it is "Walk like a Man" ..but this time I teared up and started to think about how my cousin, my brother, my friend Ken walked like a Man..not just any man but a great man..I know he walked like a this man because he had a inner pride that no matter what happened to him in life he would walked like the man that the men in our family we were taught to be..he was strong, tough, hard working, respectful, caring, kind and loving..today I am sad but I know I am a better man beause of the example he set forth for me.
There are times I want to email to see how you're doing, there are times I can hear your hearing aid ringing in the distance. A year or a day makes no difference. You are with me always - you and dad. I'll love you forever. Lori
From stepmom, Sally Algaze - One of my favorite memories of Kenneth was when he was just a teenager and I was pregnant with Lori. I told him I was going to take driving lessons. He was very, very worried. When I asked him why, he said he didn't want anything to happen to me. A little while later I told him I didn't really want to drive anyway. He was so relieved. That was when I knew he accepted me in his heart.
God bless you Ken, My friend in life and in Heaven. I miss you!.
Miss You Ken....
I can't believe a year has passed by. It was great seeing all the pictures in the album once again. Such GREAT MEMORIES I'll Keep FOREVER.
