Not sure what to say?

I just found out of Ken's passing. I last talked to him in May and knowing he would not have let this much time pass without calling, I tried contacting him and realized something had happened. I am devastated to learn of his passing. He was a true friend and co-worker. Some of my favorite times were staying with him in Napa, visiting wineries, and eating some of the best food ever. He always knew the best places to go. He also spent time with my husband and I at our home in Edmonds, WA....
