Personal Notes:
Family Memories from Marla: My Dad, Ken, used to make us Banana Graham Cracker Pudding as a special evening treat. His version was to prepare vanilla pudding per the directions on the box and layer with graham crackers and bananas, three layers deep. He always served it warm right before bedtime which gave the graham crackers just the right texture. I remember him entertaining the customers at the restaurant that he and Mom owned in Owensville - "Aud's Kickapoo Cafe". He would put me up on the counter to sing "Ragmop" to entertain the customers at the age of three. He loved to drive and he especially loved to drive fast. I remember him driving the road between Owensville and Cynthiana so fast that we would be air born when we reached the old bridge by the Cynthiana Cemetery, what a thrill! He and Mom enjoyed dancing and I still smile when I picture him doing the Cha Cha. He loved the song "My Happiness" and would play it over and over again. He loved his grandchildren and he used to take out his false teeth to make them laugh. He loved his family and he enjoyed life and we all miss him very much.
