Dearest Mrs Keene & Keene Family, I'm so sorry for your loss. I will forever cherish my memories from Bell Court, sports, release, Cub Scouts, your Lional Train, hide & go seek, sled riding down Bell Court's big hill, crab apples etc... I can still remember Fr Ken as our manager/ball boy on HTS's boys basketball team. I can still remember the school bus rides to Canevin. I will miss our time on the Building & Grounds Comittee Meetings @ HT where he would throw an occasional zinger at me. BUT, most of all the 4 days I got to spend with Fr Ken & Mrs Keene @ my place at Conneaut Lake. I will always cherish all these memories. RIP my ole neighbor, my friend & my Pastor. See you again on the other side. Tim Hartman

Alvie words alone can not express my deepest sympathy for you and your family. We will miss Fr. Ken, not only as a part of the Holy Trinity Community but also as a friend of our family. I am sure that Fr. Bill (Uncle Bill) and Jim greeted Fr. Ken and gave him a wonderful tour of Heaven! “May the road rise to meet you, May the wind be always at your back, May the sun shine warm upon your face, May the rains fall soft upon your fields, and until we meet again, May God hold you in the palm of his hand.” ????????????????????

Dear Mrs. Keene and family, As members of St. John Neumann Parish, we were just starting to know and love Fr. Ken when he left us for heaven. He was handling a difficult transition with grace and warmth. We are so sorry for your loss, and sad that we didn't have more time with your son/brother/uncle. It is so very hard for a mother to bury her son. You are all in our prayers. - Gretchen & Jeff Jezerc
