    Unlce Ken, I am still having a hard time believing this. Growing up, I remember every time you came to town and every time we went to Denver to see you. Your sense of humor, so like dad’s and yet not. There was never a time you didn’t have a warm smile and a loving hug for me. A life time of memories. I’m sure dad was there to greet you. What a reunion for the whole family. So many fond memories, I can’t even begin a list. I love you and will forever miss you. Hug my dad extra tight.
