I got to know Mr Crisp while my dad Jim atkinson was living at Windsor on the same floor with him . He couldn’t talk much but oh how we communicated ! We exchanged jestures about KU basketball and I often asked him if he’d seen the games ( which usually he did ).
He was such a nice man ! He always shared his desert with my father . He was always smiling as well . God bless him and His family.

Nancy- We were attending Emmanuel when we heard about your dad being moved to a nursing home. Those were the days when we were young and attending Emmanuel. You are in my prayers and I hope that everything goes well for you going forward. Your parents were very wonderful people. Anyway Velena and I don’t attend Emmanuel any more but are going to First Southern Baptist Church on west Eighth. We would like to invite you to visit our church.....God and other Christians will be a comfort for you going forward. God bless you!

Saddened to hear of Kenneth's passing, but only for your loss of his presence, as he is celebrating in God's presence now and forever. My home visits to him as one of his pacemaker nurses was most memorable. We were all welcomed as family there. "Donadagohvi" - Till we meet again.
