Not sure what to say?

I just saw this..I look at your house everyday as I drive to work..I meet Ken a few years ago when I stopped to buy plants. I loved to talk to him and would stop buy often. We discovered he was from Russell the same town my parents and family are from. It saddens me when I drive by your house. I will always cherish the many many plant I have in my yard from Ken. God bless Cheri cadwell syverson

I, too, was a classmate of Ken's, as well as a football team mate. How fast he was! An all around great guy, and I am so glad we got to visit at the 50th reunion. Jim Ekse, RHS 1960

Ken left a legacy of hope, humility & honestly. He impacted the lives of countless individuals looking for a better way of living.

Ken was a lifelong friend and a good guy. It is hard to lose someone like that. My sympathy to his family. Russell & Kay Hively

Maria Our condolences. Ken was a great worker at our Knights of Columbus Fish Fries. He also helped out at other K.C. activities when asked. One thing we had in common was Country music. We would talk about country music bands and singers. Also he would mention going up to Sandstone I believe, to watch shows. We missed him last year at the fish fries and will do so in the future. God Bliss. Dick Dols Knights of Columbus.

We'll pray that all of you, Ken's family, can find comfort in this difficult time.
Take care.
(Friends of Pat and Linda)

I am so sad and I send my deepest sympathy. I'm a member of the Russell High School class of 1960.

We met Ken by buying his beautiful flowers. Ken was always so nice and had a great smile. Years ago, my husband and I picked up an awesome arbor made out of tree branches from Ken. We planted climbing roses to put on either side of the arbor and it looked so beautiful. Recently, I have had the opportunity to talk and spend some time with Maria. Maria you are a such a sweetheart. Thank you both for sharing your flowers with us. We will cherish the beauty that both Ken and Maria have added...

Maria, Kenny and family, We are so saddened at this news and for the grief you are all feeling. Ken was such a great guy, and it was so obvious that he loved to laugh, loved his kids, and loved his wife. We will miss his shining, smiling face sitting in the front row of all our shows. We have felt so blessed by knowing him. Our love and prayers go out to you. Tom and Patti McCarthy from The Seasons Dinner Theatre
