July 15, 3AM, heaven gained the sweetest angel, my Dad Ken Hagy.
He fought the toughest year long battle one can imagine, never complaining, never giving up even at the end with no hope, always giving his all, defying all odds. He loved every minute of every day. He lived with us during most of his battle. Even at his weakest, when I might acknowledging his "rough day", he would say, "What do you mean? Every day I wake up is a good day." He had a remarkable way of ignoring the negative and finding joy in the smallest of things.
He loved music. The song that always brought a chuckle and a smile was "Old Bones" Jack Imel's version. He often burst out in song, smiling joyfully. He sang to me, "you are my sunshine", to his wife Peggy, " Love me tender, love me sweet, kiss my smelly feet".
Oh yes, he had quite a sense of humor, bringing us to tears at times.
My husband Jeff, alias Angel two, and I, Angel one, are so gratefully for all the time we had with him, getting to know him on a deeper level than would have otherwise been possible and supporting him in his final chapter. Heaven has the sweetest angel.

"Do Not Stand At My Grave And Weep" by Mary Elizabeth Frye
Do not stand at my grave and weep
I am not there. I do not sleep.
I am a thousand winds that blow.
I am the diamond glints on snow.
I am the sunlight on ripened grain.
I am the gentle autumn rain.
When you awaken in the morning's hush
I am the swift uplifting rush
Of quiet birds in circled flight.
I am the soft stars that shine at night.
Do not stand at my grave and cry;
I am not there. I did not die.

I was blessed to know his kindness and encouragement-he was truly a gentleman. I smile whenever I think of him, remembering the love and affection he showed his family and his gentle humor. Please know that I have all the Hagy family in my thoughts and prayers.

To the entire Hagy family and extended family,

I admired your parents so much. Susan knows the story of when your Dad carried her down the stairs with her full leg cast that moment I thought he was the most handsome and strong man! He captured my heart and any time I could be in his presence I was thrilled!

I’m so happy that he had your Mom and that he had wonderful years with Peggy. My heart goes out to you all. One of the Great ones was called Home but he is forever watching over you! God bless him and all of you. ♥️

Uncle Kenny was a gracious person who always made us feel welcome in his home as children. He was a wonderful brother, father, and husband. He will be missed by his whole family. He had a great life and with the help of Susan and Jeff stayed engaged in activities till the end of his life. How lucky he was to have them.
