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.

WEEP NOT FOR ME


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.
