Susan and I was shocked and saddened when I saw Ken's obituary in the The Oklahoman Saturday. Although it has been at least thirty-eight years since Marcia and I were there as your pastor family I have thought of you both many times. I remember Ken as my favorite dentist who graciously took care of my dental needs without charge. I also remember Ken's warm and congenial personality and a young man who exhibited a deep desire to have a closer relationship with the Lord.

I thank the Lord for your friendship and support as your pastor and have a deep desire to attend Ken's memorial service tomorrow; however, I am not able to come. I will keep you in my prayers and hope one of these days to have the opportunity to see you in person once again.

As I new Ken during his teen years, I will always remember him as a "character" with character. Rest in peace, my friend, Larry England
