Jana Thorson

It was quite a shock losing Ken, and his absence has left a huge void. In our 31 years together, I never heard a negative word about him. That's extremely rare but not surprising, as he treated everyone with courtesy and respect. He was unrelenting as my most ardent supporter, and life will never be the same without him. A celebration of life jam will be held at a private residence the evening of Sunday, 9/4/22. If you are interested in attending, please contact me for details at 920-452-1994.
