I had the pleasure of living above Ken in the upstairs apartment for over 3 years. Where do I start. I received a call this morning telling me of Ken's accident, at first I went into complete denial. I had to call another friend and confirm. For the rest of the day I was in disbelief. I wanted to call the phone but I knew that he would not pick up, I rode by the apartment to see if I saw the bike there. All of a sudden it hit me like a ton of bricks. I cried like a newborn baby and Im still crying now. To say that Ken was a good guy is a tremendous UNDERSTATMENT! Ken was a wonderful person who would always take you into consideration first. can recall days where we would talk about everything. He had his hands into everything. He taught school, he had many internet businesses, he was a contractor, he wanted to levate his life to a new status. He was the most inspiring person I have ever known. Most of all he loved his bike. I remember when he got the new bike, I was like mannnnn, I like the classic one, he said nawwww this my baby right here. I laughed and laughed. He would make me so mad sometimes in the morning, with his old bike, because you could hear him as soon as he turned the corner on valley. Those pipes roared all through the complex, but it was good, because I knew he had made it home, i would of course call him when I woke up to give him my two cents. Overall Ken was like a brother to me, he gave me advice on life, business, and most of all love. He could dish out some fantastic advice. He will be terribly missed, I can not only speak for myself but for others and say that he was the "BEST" GUY around. Lord knows I wanted him to stay in this world longer, GOD why did you have to take Ken away. Please GOD show us what you want us to know by giving and taking Ken away. He will BE GREATLY MISSED AND HE WAS LOVED BY MANY. Ken is my buddy, and I loved him like family, GOD knows I would love to just joke around with him just once more, or tell him THANK YOU for helping me to see the crap through the guy i was dating, just to see that silver helmet and black leather vest and loud pipes, and HIS HUGE HUGE SMILE just once more, just once more. If anyone should read this, please tell people that you care about them, love those who have wronged you, get yourself right, and dont forget those who could bring a smile to your face no matter what.
I'll always be your neighbor and loving friend, I am going to miss you friend. Keep me a seat warm in heaven buddy.

Love Always Jordan 743 H
