You were a very host for the game show Remote Control. My prayers go to you and your family. Lisa Weiner" - Lisa Weiner (Brooklyn, NY)
February 02, 2013 "To the Ober Family,

I was friends with Ken, he was a nice, genuine person. He loved life and loved to laugh. I hadn't seen him in years but always had fond memories of him from High School. I am deeply sorry for your loss. You are in my thoughts and prayers." - Mark Lewis (West Hartford, CT)
March 03, 2011 "Well its sad his gone seemed nice. I shook his hand when he was doing a game show in LA." - Micah (MD)
May 03, 2010 "I met Ken at UMASS Amherst in 1978. He was a member of Pi Kappa Alpha fraternity, and I was rushing to become a pledge. What an honest, sincere, and needless to say funny guy. I remember him driving his Fiat convertible around campus. We both had a attended a soccer camp run by Pelé in New Jersey, he realized that when he saw me wearing a jersey from that camp. I think it kind of endeared me to him. I never missed a comedy show that he did at UMASS with his then comedy writing partner, Peter Tolan. I only saw him one other time after college, that was when he did his standup act in Hyannis on Cape Cod. He always remembered my name, and everyone was a friend to him. I travel quite a bit to southern California now for business, and wish I could stop in and see an old friend." - Charles Barry (Plano, TX)
March 07, 2010 "For Ken...

I am always perplexed by His
choice of someone so young.
Now...you have gone home.
You know the answers to all
the questions.


Do not weep for me when I no longer dwell among the wonders of the earth; for my larger self is free, and my soul rejoices on the other side of pain...on the other side of darkness.

Do not weep for me, for I am a ray of sunshine that touches your skin, a tropical breeze upon your face, the hush of joy within your heart and the innocence of babes in mothers arms.

I am the hope in a darkened night. And, in your hour of need, I will be there to comfort you. I will share your tears, your joys, your fears, your disappointments and your triumphs.

Do not weep for me, for I am cradled
in the arms of God. I walk with the angels, and hear the music beyond the stars.

Do not weep for me, for I am within you;
I am peace, love, I am a soft wind that caresses the flowers. I am the calm that follows a raging storm. I am an autumns leaf that floats among the garden of God, and I am pure white snow that softly falls upon your hand.

Do not weep for me, for I shall never die, as long as you remember me...
with a smile and a sigh.
