    To Ken’s family – Please accept my sincere sympathy. I remember Jo Ann and Ken from years ago as growing up a neighbor of Wally and Til Baumann. It’s wonderful to read this family has grown to include so many grandchildren and great-grandchildren. Ken and Jo Ann, I’m sure, love that as would Wally and Til. My love and prayers to Jo Ann, Lynn, Gregg and all.
