My condolences and love to Kens family. He was such a talented and wonderful man. Our friend ship goes back to 1946 when I first watched from backstage, his first dance performance. We soon became dance partners and friends. All though we didnt see each other or communicate very much through the years, he was always the same old friend when we did. I have many happy memories.
