    I am so shocked and saddened to hear about Ken. He was such a wonderful, generous, hardworking man, who was always there to help anyone in need, I have so many great memories of Ken. He was a great friend, and like a brother to me. Ken will be deeply missed. My thoughts and prayers go out to the family.

    …..To the Eaves and Evans Family with our Deepest sympathy….The Self Family…..
    Kenny was more to us than just a mere inlaw….Kenny was a warm and loving good friend and brother to all of the Self family….I loved having conversations with Kenny and talking about his life in general, he had so many wonderful stories to tell and it always felt like you were in an adventurous fairy tale or action story when he spoke to you because his voice was intense and he always had a slight whisper to his voice it always made listening to him that much more meaningful…Kenny we will miss you at all of the family gatherings and family BBQ’s that we had together….I for one will miss you my brother inlaw, my pal, a good man to talk to….I will always remember something you shared with me Kenny…..you said : ” Once you lose your parents all that you have left is your siblings.”……When you spoke those words they stayed with me because you were always concerned about Maleta’s 3 Boys…..you told me that you cared for them and that you were constantly hoping that they would mend their hearts amongst themselves and pull together as brothers should….you had a great love for FAMILY Kenny and I admired that about you so very much….I never heard you say a bad thing about anyone and it seemed to me that you always tried to find the best in everyone you knew you were one of the nicest men I have ever known in my life…..and you always told me how sweet and loving my wife Renee’ was….and for knowing you and having you in our family Kenny was a great honor and I thank Jesus for the time we had with you on this Earth may God give you and your loved ones peace and rest and may you enjoy the kingdom of Heaven for all eternity….love Jason H. Self……your brother inlaw.

    Lavelle and family,

    Growing up down the street from all of you when you lived on Ferry Street are some of my fondest memories. I spent a lot of time at your house with Joyce and always felt like one of the family. I always remember Kenneth as being very quite but such a hard worker. I was saddened to hear of his death, as well as the death of Joyce. You certainly have had more than your share of heartache this year. I hope that time and fond memories will heal your hearts of the losses you have suffered. Please know that you are in my thoughts.
