It was a beautiful Sunday in 1987 when I walked through the doors of Forest Brook, Ken was there to welcome me. And every time I visited and Ken was there and I received a pleasant greeting. A wonderful man, "A very pleasant person indeed". I am looking forward to the day when we will meet again and receive that wonderful welcome and continue the sweet fellowship.

It was barely a month ago i reconnected with Ken. What a kind, gentle and loving soul. My sincerest condolences to the Corcoran family. May God bless, keep and guide you through this difficult time.

Eye hath not seen, nor heard, neither have entered into the heart of man, the things which God hath prepared for them that love Him. I Corinthians 2:9

May it comfort you to know that Kenny is at peace and in the arms of our Lord and Saviour, Jesus Christ.
He’s joined the throngs in heaven, offering perfect praise to our Lord for everlasting days.
Auntie Evelyn, Suzanne, Carmen, Craig & family.

With our deepest sympathy, Sonia, Scott, Steph, and Wendel
