Jill, Lloyd and Tom I just learned about Ken’s passing. My heart hurts for you. Ken was one of the most challenging and rewarding individuals I have ever worked with. Several months ago he sent a message to me. In that message he thanked me for some advice I gave him years ago. Ken said he never forgot it. I thought he just ignored me. I understand your pain. If you need anything don’t hesitate to ask.

I am so sorry to hear of Kenny's passing. I so enjoyed knowing him. Watching him ride and interact with Kristin's horse Reggie at Handicap riding gave me the courage to enjoy Reggie more and fear less. He was always so good to stop and visit with me at work.
His heart was so big. Keeping you in my heart and prayers.

I have been thinking about Kenny a lot in the last couple of weeks and decided to look him up on the internet to see if he still owned the store. The very first thing I was so sorry to see was his obituary. I am so sorry I didn’t know sooner. Kenny was so special to me. We spent many hours talking, planning, growing and learning from each other. He truly had my heart. We worked together for a lot of years. I’m so sorry we lost touch. Your whole family will be in my thoughts and prayers for a long time to come, as you have always been. God Bless you all with peace and comfort in knowing he is smiling for eternity.
