I've always had good memories of Uncle Kenny. Family get-togethers at the house in Gregory; him making the cat say "ma-ma", riding the moped, and his teasing-- just to name a few. I am sorry his last months or year were tough with his health. Family and friends are in my prayers. - Bridget

Dear Rodger & Family,
So sorry to hear about the loss of your dad. He was quite the ambassador for Gregory & the community! I remember talking with him on one of my trips back home. I enjoyed reminiscing about "the good old days".
May God's love fill your hearts during this time of loss. You are in my thoughts & prayers....Blessings, Paula

So sorry to hear of Ken's passing. I haven't seen him in many years, but can remember times at family reunions in Gregory.
Ken was a cousin to my mother Marie (McDonnell) Nash, as my grandmother was a sister to Ken's mother Cecelia. Always enjoyed visiting them at the country store near Wewela.

I really did enjoy your slideshow on the computer and was amazed at how much Ken resembled his dad, Ed, as I remembered him. We always stopped in at the store especially on Sunday on our way home from church and bought groceries. I remember Dad always wanted Mr. Adam's good cheese and bologna. Mom usually hadn't had time to prepare dinner on Sunday so that made for a quick lunch with crackers. I can remember Ken being there-he was

Aunt Leila and Cousins Roger, Bruce, Mike and Jeanette,
You have my heartfelt sympathy and you are all in my prayers during this difficult time. I always looked forward to visiting you guys when Mom, Buddy and us kids would make the trip from Denver during our childhood days. Uncle Ken was always the exciting and adventurous one for me because of his love of flying and his skills at model making and, most importantly, he seemed to always have fun and enjoy life. My thoughts are with you all.

Dear Adams family, please accept our deepest sympathy. Ken was a very special guy and he will be missed by all of us. He always had a story to share or a new joke to tell. He told me a lot of old "Colome" stories of his high school days. I always enjoyed talking to him.
May your memories carry you through these difficult days and may God Bless all of you.
Glenn & Cindy Sealey
