  2. I signed the guess book yesterday, but as I write this note I know that are at the church service in Pueblo. I am in prayer with you right now even though I am 750 miles away. God bless all of you.

  3. Judy, Tami, Kristi, Stacie, and family,

    I was very sad to hear the passing of your husband, father, and friend. You know how I felt about Ken. He was not only my 3 sisters father, but he meant a lot to me growing up. I remember when I was young going to the high school basketball games and he was a District 60 door official. I would always go up and tell him the score of the games. Every once in while he would even send me over to the concession stand to get some popcorn. Sometimes, I would climb on the back of the fence and talk to him while he was working in the garden while Rusty (the dog) barked at me.

    Also, I remember the times when we played golf together after he started having some of his mental issues. You hated to laugh, but sometimes he was really funny on the course with some of his comments he would make. He use to call me his friend as you all know which was really true.

    I grew up loving his daughters like sisters and they are in my heart everyday and even more so today as we mourn his passing.

    I always admired Judy for sticking next to his side all these years since it had to be difficult. She showed what true love means when you say I do.

    I know that Ken is in heaven right now and probably playing tennis with the angels watching over his wife, children,grandchildren, and friends.

    God bless all of you and you don’t know how I wish I could be at the service. I just got back in town late yesterday and will out again this week.

    We love you all.

    Kent, Kandis, Kyle, and Jared
