Condolence & Memory Journal

So sad to hear of Kenneth's illness and passing. But I know he is feeling no more pain and is with our Lord and Savior. Kenneth and Mary Jane are such an inspiration to my kids and myself. Our special time in Galveston with Kenneth sharing his fishing experience with my boys and paddleboat with all 3 kids. The boys still ask me about that man that took them fishing even after almost 20 years Thank you for sharing him. We will continue to pray for you and your children in your loss and that the Lord will hold you in His hands and comfort you. Love you all.

Mary Jane, Jennifer, Spencer and John and families:
My heart goes out to all of you with Ken's passing. We have shared many wonderful times here in Houston, Galveston, New Braunfels and I hope to visit with all of you in Austin soon.

Dear Mary Jane,

How sad I was to see Ken's obituary in this morning's Chronicle.
We shared some good times with you and Ken for a long, long time, didn't we? Suppers at homes in "The Bend", West U., the beach house Ken built... and, because that's the nature of life, we shared some troubling times as well. That's the blessing of friendship.
My heart goes out to Spencer, Jennifer and John as well. As my kids know, it's mighty tough to lose your dad!
I pray for strength and comfort for each of you.
Pat Stone
