Dear Alvie and Family, So sorry to hear of Fr. Ken’s passing. He was just the best. My best memory of him was his visit to our house to hear our confession and bring us communion during illness. But most of all his coming to the Cemetery of the Alleghenies two days, the first was George’s service and the next day George’s burial.I know he is with Our Lord. May he Rest In Peace. ✝️

Dear Alvie, I am so sorry for your loss. I always enjoyed when Father Ken came on First Fridays. He always had a smile on his face and put a smile on my face. There will be a big void in our lives. My thoughts and prayers are with you and your family.
