Early this morning, Kenneth Edward Branford II, passed from time into eternity. He was more than a brother-in-law to me. He was a brother. He was a friend. He was the kind of husband and father I would like to be. He was patient and kind and generous. His smile would light up a room. He was genuine and real. He instantly disarmed you and put you at ease with his gentle spirit and attentive ear.
I mourn, truly mourn this loss. I do not know how my sister and my nieces and nephews will navigate this life without his guiding hand.
I do not understand why he is gone from this earth when his legacy was just beginning to gather steam.
Of course, his legacy will live on in his children and in all who were influenced by this amazing servant of the living God.
Ken, above all else, loved Jesus Christ.
Our lives will never be the same because of his influence, and now because of his absence.
Ken, my dear brother, I did not get to say goodbye. But I will see you soon.
I love you and miss you.
