I have many happy memories of Ken. The song that pops in my mind first is from VBS at OLOL Jump to the Left Jump to the right! The kids and the grown ups loved that song. Rest Mr Ken.

For seven years I played music at OLOL with Ken. Literally a life-changing experience for me. Catholic churches are not usually known for their lively music. Ours was! Ken Myers - I'll never forget him.
