Ken and June are truly the best neighbors anyone could have. Each time we would visit, they would bring pure happiness to my day. Ken, my heart aches for the loss of your dear June. God bless you.

June and Ken are two of the sweetest people I know. Their love and caring just shone from them. June was a gift to all who knew her and I was blessed to be one of those people. June is with Brent now

That smile and laugh of June's was always contagious. What s beautiful lady! When I was in high school (1959-62) I was fortunate to babysit for Ken and June. She gave me s roasting pan - which I put in my hope chest at that time - and still use today.
My sincere sympathies to Ken and all the family. May the happy memories bring you peace in the coming days.
