  6. JoAnn, Robert, and the Jennings family in Oklahoma …
    My, how we miss Ole Ken here at Manitou. Ken was the most genuine Christian man, so humble in spirit, so full of life. I told him one day in the hospital that when I thought of him, I thought of a man with impeccable character, and I believed that he lived the kind of life that God commanded him to live. What a legacy he has left for his wife, his son, his family, and all of his friends. I pray God’s peace and blessings on you all.

  7. He will always be remembered as you share the stories and the memories of how he lived his life and how very much he meant, may you find comfort…And, throughout this difficult time, may you also know the deep sympathy and concern that is felt for you and all your family. I have fought the fine fight, I have run the course to the finish, I have observed the faith.-2Timothy 4:7. As for me, I will lie down that I may sleep; I shall certainly awake, for Jehovah himself keeps supporting me. -Psalms 3:5

  8. JoAnn, You are in my prayers. Thank you for allowing us to care for Ken.

    To the Jennings Family, May each of you find comfort in knowing that God is "near to those that are broken at heart; and those who are crushed in spirit he saves." (Psalm 34;18) He has promised to soon "swallow up death forever…and wipe the tears from all faces." (Isaiah 25;8) Take care,
