Well, I could write forever about Ken. Life will certainly not be the same without him. From the long drives we took, to the late night coffees, to the 3am big Macs , and to all the laughs we shared. Almost 17 years of friendship to remember. Ken was there when I needed him the most. There isn't a time I can remember him not being there . One of my most cherished memories was the day I gave birth to my son , he was there to hold my hand , and he was there to drive me to the hospital , and even though I was in terrible pain he made me laugh so hard on the way over to the hospital that it took from my pain. Ken there are not enough words in the Webster dictionary to even begin to tell you how I feel about you . A Friendship like ours was rare that's for sure. And I will always carry you with me. I was glad I got to give you one last hug when I came to see you that day. I had dreamed about you the night before our visit , and I will never forget what you said to me when I sat beside you , that you dreamed about me to. It takes special people to communicate in dreams. Farewell my friend .. I will miss you till we meet again
