Nancy, we were so sorry to hear about Ken. My parents asked me to send their love and let you know that you are in our thoughts and prayers. What a blessing both he and you have been to us, through our years together in Jubilee Ministries. I know how much you will miss him.

Pastor Hall has always been a light in my life. He certainly will be missed. He was a great solider for the Lord. I have many fond memories of him preaching when I was a kid.
