My condolences to the Mosher Family. I served with Ken in Viet Nam and was shocked to hear about the tragic loss of such a good man after all these years. I remember Ken was a very nice man and hard worker while in Nam. He always talked about missing home and his girl. He talked about liking the song Dream, Dream, Dream. God Bless and my prayers are with you.
