I knew Ken as Amazer on The Magian's Forum. He always seemed a positive, helpful, and encouraging member of our little online community, and we are all saddened at his passing. He let us know about his condition, and from my perspective faced his situation with courage and resolve. My best to Ken's family and friends.
