Messages of Condolence

  1. Aunt Fran, I’m so sorry to hear about uncle Ken he was always as you have been like an aunt and uncle to me! Again my heartfelt condolences to you and the family love Dee, (Sue’s friend.)

  2. I remember Ken coming by my house one day and saying “Sis you are holding out on me.”. After I asked him what he meant, he said, who is that in the picture? I told him it was Rays sister. He then began to drill me…is she single, is she seeing anyone etc… I offered to give him her phone number. He called her and you know the rest of th e story.

  3. Uncle Ken was always my favorite Uncle. I use to tell everyone he was my double Uncle. People would look with a questionable face. I would laugh and say well he was my uncle and my in uncle by marriage! Still not sure what I was talking about I would tell the rest of story…my Moms brother married my Dad sister making him my double uncle and of course Aunt Fran was my double Aunt. However, he was the nicest person I have every known and would not saying anything bad about any one. Oh and another amazing thing about him…he never got headaches!

  4. our hearts go out to you,and our prayer,s are with you.may God wrap
    His Loving arms about you and keep you in His hands. Yes, we
    Certainly will miss your Dad in this Life but looking forward to see him
    On the other side .again our prayer,s are with your family.
