Dear Mary and Family, Our heartfelt condolences on your loss of Ken. To us he was a friend, neighbor, chef, and mixologist—extraordinaire. It was truly our honor and pleasure to have Ken as a friend and neighbor. His kindness towards us will never be forgotten. Our dear friend Ken left this world a far better place than he found it.

Please accept my sincerest condolences on Ken's passing. Ken and I were co-editors of the Polaris yearbook our senior year at Freeport High School., Class of 1958. He was a great guy and a fine musician, I'm sure he will be sorely missed by his family. Ladine Bennett Housholder
