I met Ken when I was a young girl through family friends. He was always joking and laughing. I hadn't seen him in years after being gone to college, but when I ran into him again he knew exactly who I was and started joking with me. I ran into him often after that and even in poor health he always smiled and asked about my family. I will certainly miss seeing my friend. Rest easy, Sir, until we meet again. Prayers for all of the Hicks family.
