Condolence: It was a shock to hear of Kens passing. we had many years of working together at Post and I remember all the problems we solved together. I believe that your careful and considerate commitment to your job has made our working life so much better. It has left us with a deep sense of loss of a wonderful personal friend. You will be missed very much at the Post breakfast.

Condolence From: Kent Roberts
Condolence: Doug and Family - sorry to hear of Dad's passing. I can still picture Doris and Ken sitting in the stands in 60's following our wrestling teams. Over the years I enjoyed their friendship and kindness. He will be missed but whenever I watch the Michigan Wrestling Wolverines I will think of him. Please accept my heartfelt condolences.

Condolence From: Patrick Frost
Condolence: I really don't like having to send these messages to the Bess family because it seems like I just sent one for my buddy Mike. I'm so sorry to hear about another loss in your family and especially the head of the family. Your Father and Grandpa was such a great guy.I know you all know that. All the Bess Famiy will be in all the Frost family's thoughts and prayers.

Condolence From: Judy Manley Kuykendall
Condolence: No words can say how sad to lose such a kind, warm, and loving family man. When my best friend married into the Bess family she gained such wonderful people on her side. I have watched over the years the arms wrapped around Colleen from these fine folks and so lovingly, for this I know the great humble man, Ken, was the foundation of it all. It was such a pleasure to see Ken when I would be visiting Mike and Colleen, he always had kind conversation and open arms to his home. It is so hard to believe we have lost Mike and both of his parents now. Sending many hugs and blessings to all the Bess family and friends. My condolences to you as you grieve your loss.

Condolence From: Debbie (Jones) Bennett
Condolence: I'm stunned. Gary's brother's services are tomorrow at Bachman and Wed. Ft. Custer. In looking at his information we discovered Mike's passing in November and I was shocked. Then today to see your Dad's name. We all grew up together and I love your family. There's just Bob, Me and and my Mom left of our immediate family. On Sunday I was thinking it would be amazing to see any of you again and then to see that you will be using the same place 24 hours later--is beyond words. We will be praying for all of you that JESUS wraps HIS arms around you all and comforts you. Love to you Doug, Debbie and Jackie. Please feel free to contact me. We will be at Bachman tomorrow from 4 to 7 for Richard Bennett's greet time. Gary and I would love to see any of you, if not no worries. We pray blessing on you all as you miss your Dad for sure. He gave me the biggest hug at My Dad's service at Calvary Baptist on March 27, 2013. Your parents were so precious to me growing up.
