The Gift of Life for 71 Years

Seventy-one years of productive life given to Ken from God. Because of faith-believing parents, Ken conquered childhood polio, broken nose, and who knows what else. Married at the age of 19, he has survived soon to be 52 years of marriage, a deadly staph infection and much, much more to enjoy this day. No big party this year. There was lunch at Whataburger hosted by the Scharps, a trip to Barnes & Noble, church, and some big time planning for a trip coming in the Spring. This is one grateful birthday boy -- happy to be alive.
