“My memories go back to 1957 when I first met Ken in Chicago at WE Hawthorne Works. Over the years we enjoyed many good times on the softball field, the golf course, the bridge table and (yes, we even worked occasionally!) Last couple of years we shared Chemo stories at Methodist Estabrook Cancer Center. We know Kenny is at peace in a better place and reunited with Joyce. I wish him well and perhaps we'll meet again one of these days. DAN DANKOF
