  6. My wife, Sandy and I are very sorry for your loss. There are so few hero’s for our younger generations to look at and see what it takes to keep the freedoms we have. Ken was one of those shining examples who gave a piece of his life to preserve what many of us take for granted. Freedom is not free and Ken paid for all of us. May God take your family in his arms and comfort you in your hours of need. Know that he has earned his place in heaven and is filled with peace and happiness.
