Marlene and Family,
I was sorry to hear that Ken past away. He was a good friend over many years while I was working for Dennis Nicholson. I always enjoyed visiting with him. I often think about his constant work on the building at 111 West Main Street and his involvement at West Point on the Eno.
Best wishes,
Bill
