I’m clara’s Cousin by marriage. We thought the world of Ken. He was so good to “Doobie” but was also such a good hearted man. He loved our son , Johnny and have him a set of drawing pens when he found out ylthat was what Johnny was taking in school. We are so sorry we can’t make it to the services. Bridget can’t get off work, Johnny works in Charlotte John is in blind training in Birmingham and I have plans I can’t change. John and I drove by the grave just last month to see the flags. Just remember he will always be taken care of. We are proud to call him friend and are so greatful for his military service. I cannot fully express our love for Ken but he will not be forgotten by “June”and his family. Our hearts are with you
