    We will miss Mr Kenneth very much at First Christian Church. He had some great stories that I loved listening to. Always talking about his wife and children. He was very dedicated to his family. We all loved him.

    I’m so sad to learn of Mr. Bingham passing. I took care of Ruth in their home while doing home health and loved both of them. Prayers for Ruth and the whole family 😢
