    Jennifer, Emily, and Taylor..I am so saddened by your loss. But death is not the ultimate end…it will be struck down and all of mankind will be awakened by our Lord Christ Jesus. Kenneth is sleeping: see Ecclesiastes 9: 5, 10. Jesus taught his disciples to pray, “Thy kingdom come, thy will be done, in earth as it is in Heaven.” We know that heaven doesn’t experience sickness, sadness, and death. So that promise will be fulfilled on earth! Please know that my prayer is for your comfort from our Heavenly Father and his dear son, Jesus Christ. Lean on them, and know that you will be comforted. Your cousin, Martha Watson Cope

      My thoughts and prayers go out to you Jennifer in this very difficult time. I remember all the great times Carrie Townsend myself and Kenneth spent together after Church at Lake Shore. I remember when we lived together for a very short time in Dallas that he was such a great man. But the one thing that he had to get back to was the Love of his Life (Jennifer) I will leave you this JONH 11:25 since he was a Christian I am the resurrection and the life The one who believes in me will live even though they die and whoever lives by believing in me will never die

    • I too went to Lake Shore Church of Christ with him. Very sorry to hear this.
