While words fail to capture the pain of losing a loved one, we look forward to the time when words will fail to capture the joy of having our heavenly Father return your dear Kenneth to you. May you find comfort in knowing that he is safe in the memory of God, who will remember every detail about him and bring him back again. (John 5:28, 29)
