    Fran and Family,
    I am saddened to hear of Ken’s passing. Ken and I worked together for many years and he was truly a close friend and co-worker at UPS and after we both retired we remained friends.

    I am very fond of his wife Fran too.
    God be with you all during this difficult time.

    Nick, Jen, Fran and family,
    Ken was always a good friend and partner at UPS. After retirement we remained friends and whenever I returned to Omaha I tried to visit with him when possible. Ken was always a pleasure to spend time with. He will be missed by his many friends. I know his passing will leave an empty spot in your family. I pray that God’s love and peace will comfort you at this tough time.
