    Dear Fennessey Family, I was so sorry to hear of your dad passing away. I knew Ken as a hospice volunteer for Lifetime care. I am the volunteer coordinator for hospice and over the years I had the opportunity to have many phone conversations with him, while I assigned patients and families to Ken. I also had the good fortune of seeing him at volunteer events. Your dad was such a caring and compassionate person who always had a twinkle in his eye….an overall great guy!! I’m sure he will be missed by so many of you. My thoughts and prayers go out to all of you. Sincerely, Lindsay Brown
