To the Mr. Ken Grams Family. I'd like to pass along my deepest sympathy to you Karen and to all of your family. Ken will be sorely missed by MANY including me. Ken and I go back a long ways from our Heartland days when he was our printing rep at Heartland Press. He and I would always compare war stories about our jobs. One day while I took a hiatus from Heartland communications Ken became the manager of Business Air whom I worked for. The company that I left Heartland Comm. for closed after one and a half year and Ken hired be back, rescued me as I look at it now, to help him get back on track and that we did! I also needed a job! Ken and I were very instrumental on getting our publication back on track and very profitable. He was always scheming, trying to always get the upper hand on our competition which we were just about there then something tragic happened, he left. It was a shock and things were never the same, customers in our industry/Aviation were sorry to hear he had left our company. Ken and me traveled the world so to speak to attend Aviation shows. We traveled to Dubai a couple of times, Geneva Switzerland many times and all around the US for Business! We were a team for many years, it was like the blind leading the blind but we did it well! I owe this man so much and would have liked the chance to repay him somehow. Guess we'll have to wait now since he has left us so soon. Ken will always be remembered for being there when I needed someone to talk with, for business questions and all around life conversations which there were many of them!! I could go on and on about my time with Ken! Again, sorry for your loss of a great man. I will miss him too but there will always be a special place in my heart for Ken and he will always be remembered!
Peace of mind is a call away. We're here when you need us most.

Karen, my deepest sympathies to you and your children and extended family. My heart goes out to you all. I will always remember Ken as a fun loving, super nice, outgoing guy who supported Jeff and I at Wise Woman Wellness for many years though your wonderful magazine. Ken was an amazing, honorable and trustworthy man who did a great service for so many people. With love, Randi Mann

Our thoughts and prayers are with Ken’s family. We will miss Ken’s visits, jokes and wonderful personality when he would come visit us at SATA/Dan-Am Company. Ken had such integrity, he always went the extra mile for our company and was a truly great friend. He will be greatly missed by many and Heaven gained a wonderful soul. I hope he is up there entertaining everyone with the happy dance in his Orange suit...I’ll miss you buddy!

Karen & family - My deepest condolences. We will all miss Ken greatly as he lit up the room every time he walked in. Usually with a smart remark or a solid dad joke. I hope they have a big green egg and endless supply of cocktails up there for you Ken.

Karen and Family - Ken was truly a remarkable individual. He left an impression on many lives. Carol and I were so privileged to have you and Ken as our first REAL adult friends.

It's difficult to loose someone, let alone someone as full of life as Ken. He was an amazing man with so much to offer. Some of his stories he shared of tradeshows will always make me laugh. I will miss my friend! Brenda

Kenny was a Happy go lucky guy. And if you were down , he tried his hardest to cheer you up. He had a great smile n sense of humor also a competitive spirit.And you can start up where you left off, if you haven't seen one another in awhile. He will be truly missed. His spirit will be with us forever!

I went to High School with Ken - I remember he got to use a White Trans Am with a big blue 'bird on the hood. His white Tux with blue trim matched the interior of that car!!. God Speed, Ken - you will be missed. Neil .

First time I met Ken was in the Film dept at Heartland Press. I told him: “The only negative thing about me are my positives”. We laughed and laughed and became instant friends. In our last conversation, He assured me of his Faith In Jesus Christ, and the peace of God was with Him. May the Holy Spirit comfort his family now in their time of need. Ken left an impression on all our hearts!!!

Ken, you will be missed by all who knew you. Our discussions and sharing during poker games were more than just banter, many life lessons about business and family were shared. I valued our friendship over the years. You were an inspiration to me and a successful entrepreneur who was confident enough in your abilities to share your knowledge and wisdom. My sincere condolences to your family during this difficult time.

Karen & Family... You have my deepest sympathy for your loss. Ken was a very dear friend and I too will miss him forever. Ken never heard a joke he couldn't remember... and tell 10 times better than anyone else!! Ken was the ultimate Sales person. Good at telling jokes, better at playing golf, and most of all...Ken was GREAT with people! You are very luck to have Ken in your life and in your memories!! All my love and respect. BR
