  1. You were the best big brother a sister could have. You helped me so many times. You taught me to drive, and spent so much of my childhood with me. I love you and will have a hole in my heart forever, now that your gone. I am so happy you found a loving relationship in these last years.

  2. You gave me the best 10 1/2 years of my life. Ken gave me the best gift of all. He gave me our daughter Chelsea & his spirit lives on through her. Plus Ken raised my son Matthew as if he was his own son. Ken had such a big heart. He was always doing for others. He would go out of his way to help anyone. I once watched Ken go up to a homeless person and give the man money to go get a meal. That’s how he was. Ken also had a great sense of humor, he was always making jokes. We had 10 wonderful years, so me & the kids have all those great memories. r.i.p. dear loved one.
