    Ranny and Joy have been our life-long friends. We enjoyed his wit and banter. We enjoyed our get-together when they moved away. Unfortunately, health situations cut our visits short but we never forgot what our old friends meant to us. Ken will be missed greatly. Condolences to Joy, Dee, Scott and the grandchildren.
