What an amazing man. He won my daughters heart immediately. Will never forget the impression he made on her and how she raved about him. I couldn't wait to meet Ward Kines. He didn't disappoint for sure. He was the most gracious host as was Jean and treated us like they had known us forever. He had such a way about him that made you feel welcome, accepted and loved when you were in his presence.
You will be missed Ward....
Much love from
The Scarpa's
