His name is Ken

Ken and I
Ken is his name. We visit him regularly at the nursing home. I first met him over my spring break in April. He is such a kind and funny guy, but there is something really special about him. Ken is a diabetic and he has a couple other medical problems. Before he went into the nursing home he lived at home with his wife. His wife spent a lot of time taking care of him to where it would wear her down. Ken saw this and wanted to do something about it. So he said he would move in to the nursing home. It wasn't an easy decision to make.

Ken has been at the nursing home now for several months and seams to be adjusting well. He does miss somethings at home which is understandable. We started visiting Ken and brought him some cookies. He really enjoys our visits especially with Stacey.

Ken is a big dog lover. He use to have a little Chihuahua named Tequila. She use to ride with him and his wife on the boat that they had. I love Ken so much. He means a lot to me. I am so lucky to have Ken in my life.
