Ken has been on my mind a bit lately. Ken and Vida were kind, compassionate, and very loving people beyond words. They were the first friends I've met when I moved to Virginia Beach from Michigan back in 1987. My condolences to the Dorn family, especially you Ralph. In a few short years we will see them again in the 1st resurrection of the saints and have a happy reunion at the start of the Millennium Kingdom of God. Until then, rest in peace Ken and Vida.

My condolences to his family. I have shed so many tears since he passed, but they are really tears of joy. Joy that Ken Dorn came into my life and loved me. Joy that when he heard my name or heard my voice it made him happy. I will miss our phone calls and his stories. I am comforted to know that he is in heaven with Aunt Vida. Rest In Peace, Uncle Ken.

I was so grateful to have him as my patient. Always put a smile on my face no matter how he felt that day. He really taught me to take life one day at a time, especially with all its ups and downs. He will be so missed in my office.
