  1. Margaret – On the chance that we do not find your mailing address, please allow us to use this method to tell you how sorry we are to hear of Ken’s death. We met him through Art’s mother, who lived at Whitney Center. We were fortunate to have visited with him several times, and thoroughly enjoyed numerous emails and conversations about how to get the computer to work. We loved his enthusiasm for trains and enjoyed his stories of Alaska. It was great fun knowing him. Our only regret is our failure to keep in touch with him the last few years. We will miss him! Art & Jean
