    I don’t believe a funeral is a good-bye.
    I believe a funeral is an exposition of a life lived… and my Friend Ken’s life was a life lived well and to the fullest.
    Everyone has friends and every friend has a different piece – A loving funeral brings all the pieces together for all the friends to share in.
    Thank you Ken for having SO MANY friends and pieces to share.
    Take good care… See YOU on the Other Side…
    Heidi, you have more friends than you can count.
    Lean on our support.
