Ken's Daughter is posting over on MTF, Not sure she will come over here. I gave her my condolences over there. She seems to be finding comfort in reading his past threads and is looking for information about his Bolens. I did not know Ken was that young. Very Sad.

Hey y'all im Ken's daughter. I'm sitting here crying reading all the kind words every one is speaking of my father. I never new he was such a big shot in the Tractor World. I'm not sure if I can give out my email address here but I'd like to be in touch with people who knew him on a personal level.
