My childhood is full of memories of the Wodek household where I ran as free as my cousins who lived there. My dear Auntie Boots, my cousins and all of their families are hurting deeply and I wish my love for all of you could somehow lesson your pain. Strength and prayers for all.
So many good memories of Uncle Ken . Thinking of you all 💙
The best Godfather a girl could have. You were one in a million. Love ya
Had a lot of fun over the years playing golf with Ken. He will be missed.
