It is with a heavy heart that I have to tell you that Ken has died. I don't have many details yet, he passed Weds. night and a son found him. He and I had been talking with each other for a while now as he was asking me about LVRS, which he was turned down for. Recently he saw a new pulmo and was quite happy with him and excited about his visit.
He is breathing easy now and no doubt, playing basketball.....
I am so very sorry to hear the news about Ken. I know we we're all worried about him awhile ago when he hadn't posted for a few weeks. Then, his kindness and his wisdom appeared once more for a short time...we will miss his words. My thoughts and prayers to his family and all who loved him.

Ken was a very important part of this group - he always wrote positive messages and was very thoughtful of everyone. Always had a good thing to say and would visit different topics and post in them too - always encouraging the weak and congratulating the strong.
I just noticed today how many times Ken also welcomed new members - he was a pillar. I will miss him with all my heart.
Although it is always sad to lose one of our members/family member/friend.... we know they are in a better place and will always watch over us.
Ken, please seek Jackie (Blossom) -- and please give her a big hug for me.
I'm richer just knowing you.
THANK YOU SO MUCH WendyCo for sharing with us - much appreciated!

I agree Jade, Kens passing really affected me in such a way that I can't explain . I really liked Ken's posts and he had some great thoughts and ideas and he loved the birds and the animals and his children!!
he was such a nice man and so gentle and he never said anything mean he was always so so nice. I still miss him in my heart still feels broke I just don't understand?
I'm extremely sensitive when someone passes I don't know why? and I pray they go to a better place, but it really bothers me especially when I love somebody so much.
I think of this about my mother as I look at her and see her going downhill and it's getting harder for her to walk and harder for her to drive her car and many things are harder for her. I'm so scared for how I'm going to be?
I know she will be in such a better place but I love her so much I can't imagine my life without her and in it.
I have never delt WITH death very well, and you would think by now I have. I've been losing family and friends since I can first walk! And was carrying in my own cloth diapers from just being at the hospital with my fathers brother.
My dad had 13 brothers and sisters. All are gone now! Very sad.

This is still heart wrenching for me! How he loved his humming birds. I wonder if anyone us taking care of them as he did. Even putting out a heating system for them bc they stayed year around with Ken.
Ken I miss you. You were such a delightful man to know, Thank you for being friends with me and sharing you're wonderful stories with us, which I keep in my heart! Love Gail.
