My condolences to the family of Kenneth. I remember the first day I met Ken. It was at Louise and Norm's house. I was invited over because Louise's brother Ken was looking for someone to help him put in a yard and help take care of their enormous garden. For over 5 years Ken kept me employed during the summer. During that time he taught me valuable lessons and I grew to look at him as a father figure in my life. Ken was a loving man who was also very generous. The garden he grew wasn't for him. The garden was for the community. Every day he was either taking vegetables to people or they were coming to get vegetables because he told them too. He had so many friends in the small town of Heron Lake and I was his biggest fan. Over the years I moved around and lost touch. It was always in the back of my mind that I needed to reach out and touch base but I always seemed to get busy and never made it happen. Then in March of 2012 I had a trip that took me to Florida and this was my chance to see Ken and Mildred again. To tell them about my family, my wonderful wife and son and show them pictures and to let them know that the things they did for me all those years ago helped make me into the person I am today. Unfortunately, circumstances didn't allow us to meet but I was able to talk with Mildred on the phone. In my heart it wasn't enough but I am very thankful that I was able to make this final connection prior to their passing. I know Kenneth and Mildred are in a better place and I hope they know how much they meant to me. They will be forever missed.
So sorry to hear of Ken's passing. May God bless you and your family at this time of sorrow.
Daniel, so sorry to see this about your Dad. He was an enjoyable person and we had many great times together. Hope you are doing fine. I see you are married and I guess in the Akron area. Take care and God Bless.......Bob & Helen Huffman
May the God of comfort be with you during your loss.
Beloved ones,if this is how God loved us, then we are also under obligation to love one another. 1John4:11
