I miss you still so much. The first year was hard enough but the second was worse. Learning to live without you is hard. I keep wanting to call you, rush home, share things, cuddle and just talk. My gentle man how I miss you. Your health has failed you and we fought the battle. I keep thinking what if this or that. You know I fought this battle of yours more then you because I knew I was losing you long before all this started to trend down. I’m exhausted, life is hard alone. You were there for me in ways I appreciated. Some day I will join you. But my time is not here. So I go on with you only in my heart.

He will remain in our hearts forever. Jean, Phil, Jess, Dave, and grandson Kamden.

Each time we were with Ken,through the years we found him to be a very sensitive caring person:very genuine with a big heart.
Our bible verse we lean on is proverbs chapter 3 verses 5 and 6.
May the Lord bring you peace Jeannette.
You will be in our hearts and prayers.

Ken and Jeannette met over the CB-RADIO radio. We were Spiderman and Tootsie. We met alot of nice people and ended up going out socially as a group of families on picnics, going out to eat, dancing, playing cards, going to festivals and just sitting around socializing with each other. It was a start of a relationship that landed on the Kaanapali shores of Maui where we shared our vows on the beach at sunset. We shared the saying when people would ask about how many children we had, we would say “we have yours, mine and ours”. We were active in the church at St Gregory the Great volunteering with various fundraisers, scouts, bookfairs. We lived simply and enjoyed what life had to offer. Weathered the storms and enjoyed the happy times we shared with each other and as a family. Ken loved our dogs Maui and Zip. Ken loved to take naps alot and the dogs joined him. Ken had a motorcycle at one time and we took long rides in the country. Ken had diabetes most of his life and it was a struggle for him. He loved vanilla custard. He recently had a prolong hospitalization and gave quite a fight with multiple complications occurring along the way. His goal was to come home and indeed he did. His family and friends shared in his last leg of his journey. I miss my husband but as he would say often to me I’m always here for you.

    It’s been 7 long years. Everyday your in my heart, recalling memories. I just miss you. My health took some hits, but back to somewhat normal functioning. My voice still shot but I speak through my heart. I know I will join you someday, for now know that I love you.
