I had lunch with Ken for years in the Lucent cafeteria and at Mr. Chou's! He was a mellow, thoughtful reader of the NY Times, a physicist who would rather talk about politics, an avid reader who turned me on to interesting writers, cared about me as a friend and made me laugh for instance, with his occasional "sunglasses indoors routine"...seeing Jack Nicholson movies. I admired his eclectic tastes, (except 5 hr. Wagner operas). He appreciated life and his wife. He was a pleasure to work with. He got gypped and I'm sure he wants us to enjoy life partly on his behalf. I will. I'm even going to give Wagner another chance.
God Bless you Phyllis for the fabulous love, cooking and care you gave him.
