I am so sorry to hear of Ken's passing. My husband and I met Ken and Ilene through the Mr Burger group. We had many good laughs around the table for several years We missed both of them when they did not come anymore. I would run into them occassionally at McDonalds and would catch up on how they were doing. Our prayers for peace and comfort as you grieve the loss of your Dad.
