    Mr. Purvis was always the life of the party. He had a really great cackling laugh that you’d always hear at the end of the jokes he would tell. My mom said that he was always in good spirits and she never seen him mad or unhappy. He had a really great business. He was very honest. You could trust that he wasn’t gonna rip you off. He was a really great neighbor. He used to make me a pot of dirty rice enough for a family of ten. It was really good. It took me a week to eat it all because there was so much. I’m really gonna miss him but I have a whole life of memories. That’s how long I’ve known him.

    When my husband was out of work, Ken extended him credit at the auto parts store so he could work on people’s cars to provide for his family. I will never forget his kindness! RIP Ken.
