Your dad's research certainly helped me an enormous amount on several occasions. In the hours, days, months and years to come, I pray you and your dad's other loved ones celebrate his life a lot and suffer his loss only a little.

You have my deepest sympathy at this difficult time. Your father had and shared an incredible wealth of knowledge both here and on at least one Yahoo group that I am aware of. No matter what the question, he always seemed to know of at least one resource (usually a list of them) that dealt with the subject at hand. He will be deeply missed.

Damn, I didn't even know he was ill. Yes he will be missed here by all of us for sure. And many thanks for taking the time to let us know. My sincere condolences to you and your family. He and I were just talking about small shapers not too long ago. :-(

Brian,
I'm sorry to hear of your Dad's passing. I haven't been on this forum for a while, but something prompted me to log on this morning & check up on what was going on...can't add much new to what has already been said about Ken, but his library of information was amazing to me, as was his graciousness & willingness to help. A fine guy-condolences to your family.

Brian,

Sorry to year of your dad's passing.

He must have been a voracious reader, as he was always pointing us to interesting books and other documents online.

I can't tell you how many bookmarks and downloads I have that came from his posts.

He was a true gentleman. We will miss him.

Steve
