To my cousins at this difficult time. I'm so sorry for the loss of Uncle Ken. I remember Ken always being such a genuinely nice person. To me, it seemed he always had a grin and a light laugh in his voice. I feel very fortunate to have shared the same family circle with you and Uncle Ken. Please know that I am sending you love.
