Ken will be remembered as a caring person to all who knew him, especially to you, Dawn.

  9. Our paths crossed a few years back, and I wish I was able to be closer to him. Life moves much too fast for some of us, but Ken always took the time to let me know how he was and that he cared. I will miss him.

    We were so saddened to hear of Ken’s sudden passing. It’s true that words can only do so much, but know that there are so many people praying for you and our family throughout this time. This is one of the most difficult things anyone has to go through, and we know that the amount of years you were with Ken only makes it that much more difficult. We’re glad you will be surrounded by family and friends who love you, and we’re sorry we can’t be there, but we will have you in our thoughts today, tomorrow, and always.
    Much love,

    Michelle & Luis
