Ken was such an amazing, loving man. I was very close to his daughter Autumn and would stay over night with her at Ken and Bevs house. They always welcomed me with big hugs and treated me as if I was part of their family. RIP Ken!! <3
Smokey was my neighbor and playmate growing up in Levittown.we played stick ball ,punchball and enjoyed being kids.we both went into the army and got out and lived
on opposite side of the country but reconnected on Facebook I alway wondered how he was doing and am glad he did well for himself, I will miss him and feel like I lost a very close friend

MY BELOVED BROTHER SMOKEY,
YOUR PAIN ENDS & OUR ENDURES. I AM TRYING SO HARD BECAUSE I KNOW YOU WOULD WANT US ALL TO CARRY ON AND NOT HURT. JUST LIKE YOUR PHYSICAL PAIN -THANK GOD WE HAVE FOR EMOTIONAL PAIN AS WELL.
BUT I NEED CRAZY GLUE FOR TEAR OF MY HEART...NO SUCH THING.
SO BEAUTIFUL IN VERMONT. THE SPRING EARTH COMES FULL OF LIFE ONCE AGAIN- IT IS ALL I HAVE TO BELIEVE THAT ALMIGHTY GOD CAN MAKE DEAD TREES, GRASS & FLOWERS BACK TO LIFE-HE PROMISES TO DO THE SAME FOR US. THUS WE BELIEVE.
EVERY NIGHT I WATCH THE SUN SET BEHIND THE MOUNTAIN-THE BRIGHT ORANGE/RED SKY- I THINK OF YOU SMOKEY-STILL CASTING A WARM GLOW.
THOUGHTS OF YOU ALIVE EVERYDAY- I WON'T LET A DAY GO BY WITHOUT A THOUGHT OF YOU. LOVE & MISS YOU ALWAYS-YOUR SIS DEB
Thank you dad for teaching me all that I have in this life. I experienced so much with you and because of you. I'm proud of you for all that you have experienced and accomplished while here. RIP now dad I love and miss you.
Ken... thank you for being the loving dad that Autumn didn't have in her life. You meant the world to her (and me). You and her enjoy catching up until the rest of us get there!
After 43 yrs of marriage, I loved you enough to let you go for your sake. Love & peace. Hug those we love and miss. See you "On The Flip-side"! MORE, Bev
I love and miss you so much grandpa can't wait to see you on the other side like you said your always in my thoughts. Love tayler
You are in the palm of Jesus' hand now, enjoy dear cousin, and pray for us. We love you.
To my dearest family, some things I'd like to say...
but first of all, to let you know, that I arrived okay.
I'm writing this from heaven. Here I dwell with God above.
Here, there's no more tears of sadness; here is just eternal love.
Please do not be unhappy just because I'm out of sight.
Remember that I'm with you every morning, noon and night.
That day I had to leave you when my life on earth was through,
God picked me up and hugged me and He said, "I welcome you."
It's good to have you back again; you were missed while you were gone.
As for your dearest family, they'll be here later on.
I need you here badly; you're part of my plan.
There's so much that we have to do, to help our mortal man.
God gave me a list of things, that he wished for me to do.
And foremost on the list, was to watch and care for you.
And when you lie in bed at night, the day's chores put to flight.
God and I are closest to you....in the middle of the night.
When you think of my life on earth, and all those loving years
because you are only human, they are bound to bring you tears.
But do not be afraid to cry; it does relieve the pain.
Remember there would be no flowers, unless there was some rain.
I wish that I could tell you all that God has planned.
But if I were to tell you, you wouldn't understand.
But one thing is for certain, though my life on earth is o'er.
I'm closer to you now, than I ever was before.
There are many rocky roads ahead of you and many hills to climb;
but together we can do it by taking one day at a time.
It was always my philosophy and I'd like it for you too...
that as you give unto the world, the world will give to you.
If you can help somebody who's in sorrow and pain,
then you can say to God at night......"My day was not in vain."
And now I am contented....that my life has been worthwhile,
knowing as I passed along the way, I made somebody smile.
So if you meet somebody who is sad and feeling low,
just lend a hand to pick him up, as on your way you go.
When you're walking down the street, and you've got me on your mind;
I'm walking in your footsteps only half a step behind.
And when it's time for you to go.... from that body to be free,
remember you're not going.....you're coming here to me.
