My memories of Ken and You when you came and studied with all of my brothers and sisters at the house in Elsworth, Santee.  He was such funny person.  You guys were dating and took your shoes off everytime you came over to our house.  I remember you guys playing footsie.  He always was very interested in our spiritual health.  I am very very thankful for that.  I will miss him very much.
Sorry for your loss.  The scripture that I like very much is found in Job 14:7.  We will see him in the resurrection.
Love you- Jeannie DeRidder-Carattini

Ken was, and remains, an inspiration.
Stacy Hernandez So many memories March 10, 2012
I have so many memories of Ken it's hard to pick a favorite; there hasn't been a time in my life that he hasn't been a fixture. But one that really stands out in my mind is when he became our bookstudy overseer. He had a goal to make our group a family;  he started by visiting each family in the group at their home, sharing his hopes and goals for the bookstudy group, he encourgaged us and made us each feel that we were truly needed to make this work. He motivated us and cared for each of us. And, just as he hoped, we became a family. It was a beautiful thing to be apart of and a memory I have always, and will continue to treasure. 
Ken's love of people and life was contagious, and I am a better person for having him in my life! I will miss him, and miss the way he greeted me with a smile and a hug at every meeting; and I look forward to it being my turn to greet him with a smile and a hug when he wakes up.
My sincere love to the entire Moody family, I love you all, and I am so deeply sorry for your loss.

With Love,
  Stacy Hernandez

Hello Becky, My heartfelt condolences to you and your family. I have so many fond memories of you growing up in the santee congregation.  I was very young and you and your family were such a big part of my history.   Ken came into Santee and we were so encouraged by his strong spirituality and he set such a good example for me growing up. We were young pre-teens.  I remember thinking how handsome he was.  One evening at the meeting, he asked me to do a demonstration.  How could I say no.  I was just flattered he asked me. "Of course I will do it"  I rememember acting like I was knocking at the door, but my mind was blank.  I didn't know what to say.  Nothing came out.  I got off the stage and started crying.  How embarrassed I was to let him down like that.  He was so kind and gentle with his words and assured me everything is fine.   I remember that like it was yesterday, many many years ago.  He use to come over to the house with ken lytle or Randy Cindelar to study with us young kids at the time.  I will always remember his zeal and kind heart. Thank you for sharing him with us.  Be strong Becky. Soon he will be back.  What a Grand Day that will be, to see our loved ones again.  (John 11:25)  your friend, ellen williams (de ridder)
Pam Bankston Footprints on your heart. March 11, 2012
I read a card one time that said some people leave footprints on your heart. While almost everyone has some effect on us, there are those who leave a bigger impression.
We will miss him, we loved him.

Dear Becky, Joel, & Jessica ,
I wanted to share with you a story about Ken.  Not too long ago I was going thru a particularly difficult situation in my family.  I was sitting in the back of the hall and as he always did,  Ken came up to me, gave me a hug and said "I can see your having a tough time today". He didn't ask for details he just said .... Let me tell you a story that someone shared with me.  .......A man was walking along one day and fell into a large deep hole. Try as he may he could not climb out. There were a few people who heard his cries but did nothing to help. Then a man came to the edge and the man in the hole said, " hey I could use some help here, the walls are too steep and I can 't get out!".  To the man's surprise he jumped down into the hole with him. The man said, " What are you doing?.... now we are both stuck in this hole?". The other man who had just jumped in said," I know..... but I've been down here before and I know the way out!".  Ken then gave me another big hug and said " I'm always here for you!"

Thats the kind of man/elder/friend he was to so many of us.  He knew the meaning of fellow feeling, and empathy.  He will be missed so much.

My prayers of comfort and peace from Jehovah are with you.
With love and friendship,

Lois Walker "Quite lovely" March 7, 2012
Dear Becky, Joel and Jessica

I just wanted to send you all my sincerest condolences on the loss of a beautiful man! 
I only knew Ken for a relatively short time but what wonderful memories I have!  A true giant amongst men.  I just so wish I could be there to support you all at this difficult time.  Thankfully, it doesn't matter where we are in the world though because our prayers to Jehovah will always help.  I pray he will support and comfort you during the difficult days and help you to remember the joy ahead.
One memory I have of Ken is the way he would tease Serena and I for our English accents and expressions! Hence the title "quite lovely" soon became our motto.
I will always remember Ken for his smile, his warmth and for how easy it was to be with him.  In fact, if you don't mind sharing him, I'd like to remember him as my American papa.

Lots of love to you all,

Lois x
Pete Peterson A Wonderful Bible Teacher March 6, 2012

Dear Becky, Joel and Jessica, my wife Cristina and I are so sorry for your loss.  This man was very special to all of us.  Ken was my spiritual Father and brother.  He taught me the Bible truths and I will be eternally grateful.  I knew “Shorty” from elementary school through high school.  As children we played together in the canyons and also played little league, though on different teams. I will always remember his wonderful athletic ability, especially in golf.  After high school we lost touch with each other, but one day he visited me while I was in College.  He had become one of Jehovah’s Witnesses.  While I went off to play professional football, he was off teaching God’s word to those who would listen. 

Ken came back into my life some time later after my wife had learned the truth and had made her dedication to serve God. Ken would come by the house to visit and encourage me to study the Bible.  At first I would refuse, but over time, because of his enthusiasm he convinced me to at least try it.  I did, and after the first study, I was convinced it was the truth.  Ken showed me from the scriptures what Jehovah’s purpose was.  While I was learning I continued to play for two years, every year when I returned from the East he would be waiting for me, ready to continue the study.

I remember the first time he took me in the preaching work.  At the first door, the door was slammed on him, almost catching his nose in the door.  I said, “no way man, I will not do this”.  He laughed and said not to worry it wasn’t always like that.  By the end of the morning, I too was talking to people at the doors and witnessing.  What a joy!  Because of the persistence of this kind, loving, giving man, and Jehovah’s Spirit, I too accepted the “truth” and dedicated my life to Jehovah.  That was 32 years ago, and his face and memory will always be with me. When Sallie, my first wife died 26 years ago, a circuit overseer, asked me if I wanted to see her again?  I said “yes, of course.”  He said, “If you do, you will remain faithful to Jehovah and you will see her in the resurrection.”  Those words are always brought to mind when somebody I love dies.  This is not the end, we all have the opportunity to see Ken again in the new system of things, a paradise earth, but we need to remain faithful to the end, just like he did. 

True, when he was a child he was called “Shorty”, but as an adult he was as tall as any man can get, based on his character.  He was a man of integrity, a loving husband, father, brother, friend, a true worshiper of the Most High God, Jehovah.  What a fine example to all of us.  He will be missed.

Our love to all of you,

Pete and Cristina Peterson
