Ken was my student in the computer lab at Castle Heights. He always made me feel special. He often came in the computer room to visit, even after he finished middle school. He was very special to me. Even though I haven't seen him since he was at Winthrop, I always hoped I would see him again when I went to the beach - which I haven't done in years. He will be missed.

May God bless and comfort his family and friends at this sad time.
