    To the family of Ken Oswalt.

    My mother and father were huge fans of Ken Oswalt.
    My mother was Mot Papazan from Concord in Fayette
    County, where Ken is and his family is from. I have fond memories of Ken, his farther Eck, and his brother Tyrone, and other family members. We used to visit
    the Oswalt family in Concord and then we were customers at Ken’s Auto Parts in Alabaster and it was
    always a pleasure to see Ken and talk old times from
    Concord days.

    Godspeed to the Family and Friends of Ken Oswalt.
    Cherish and Enjoy the Memories of a great man.
