Wonderful Father Gone to Soon
Good morning everyone.
An official obituary is posted on the funeral home's website. I had one hell of a time remembering everything I needed to, so between my foggy brain and terrible proofreading skills, I am sure I've omitted, misspelled and otherwise completely fuddled up something. Huge apologies to everyone if that is the case.
We had Ken cremated so there will be no viewing, but there are calling hours from 5-7 this Friday night at Baumgardener's Funeral Home in Kinsman Ohio. We are a pretty laid back, rowdy group, my gals, Angus and I, so if you are able to make it, please don't feel like you need to dress up. Be comfortable! It will help us all be not so nervous.
There are no formal services, but after calling hours, friends and family who knew and loved Ken are invited and encouraged to stay and speak a bit, tell us all something special or crazy or hilarious, and celebrate exactly who he was.
For everyone who cannot make it, please, please know that our family is just so very touched by the outpouring of love, respect and warmth we've experienced the past few days. It is very comforting to me, knowing that he was always surrounded by so many wonderful people. Thank you all.
