    Cheryl and family,
    So sorry to read about Ken’s death. I was just stunned to read about this sad news in the Mpls Star paper.
    Wow Cheryl, you and Ken married for 38 years, one of the success stories of our class. I’m now married for 8 years and I pray my marriage will last as yours has.
    God bless and keep you safe. Hello to all the siblings and take good care. You are in my prayers and thoughts at this difficult time.
