A Tribute to my Sweet Sister Carol Ann – I Miss You!!!

Don’t miss the pictures

On February 5th, I lost my dear sister Carol Klepper from complications related to Alzheimer’s disease. 

Carol was 20 months younger than me. I loved nothing more than making her laugh until she couldn’t breathe. As the older brother, it was my job to pull pranks on Carol and then laugh with her as she reacted. 

I was a skinny older brother, and Carol was my protector in grade school and middle school. More than one bully paid a high price for tormenting me. She stood up for me even though I often tormented her.

I loved Carol with all my heart and already miss her so much. I am comforted by memories of her smiling face, knowing that she was cared for so well by her husband Bill, and was surrounded by a loving family as she passed. I rejoice in the knowledge that she is now with Jesus, the one that loved her most. 

Please pray for Bill and the extended family as we walk this road of loss and grief. I have included a series of pictures so that you might see the sweet spirit we enjoyed for so many years.  Thank you dear Lord for Carol.

Amazing fisherwoman – She smiles even though I caught the BIG one!
I couldn’t figure out why she never trusted me. I will remember her laugh forever!
A ring for every finger and a smile for everyone.
Kari, Kathy, Ken, Carol Candie. We rejoice in the hope of another reunion

  1. Oh! Such a sweet rememberanceof such dear person in your and many others lives!

  2. Saddened that you lost your sister Carol.
    I lost my wife to metastatic melanoma of the brain 2/28/2020, before COVID lockdown began. Just heard your speech on BBN today 3/14/22, and stories of “I love you” to our children. Fortunately our dad was a hugger and would pick us up and say, “Do you love your old man?” A YES would get us out of his grip. My wife and daughter are huggers too; so am I. Can hardly read my script here for the tears. May the LORD enrich your ministry.

  3. Ken,
    I love your comedy, I just finished watching Fully Alive. I am sending to my sister.

    I am so sorry for the loss of your sister. The pain lessens some, yet they are always missed.

    I just lost my brother Dec. 1, 2022.
    I was privileged to spend the last 5 days with him and be his caregiver.
    We had no idea he had cancer throughout his body till 6 days before he passed.

    I still miss my mom and dad a lot they passed in 2010 and 2006

    Blessings to you and your family as you continue your ministry.

  4. You will see your sister soon, thank You, Jesus. My sister went to heaven 4 years ago and I miss her so much. She was 86 and I will be 86 next year. Maybe I’ll see her very soon. Mama was 101 so I never in my life thought Sis would go so soon. Your shows have given me such joy and laughter. When I go to bed at night, your talks at Moody Preacher’s conventions put me to sleep. I usually am gone when you say, “They’re still lookin’ at me!” Thank you for the joy you’ve put in my life. I’m so glad to see pictures of Diane. May GOD give you many more years to put GOD’s light in our lives!!!!! See you around the Throne!

  5. Can I break the rules and leave a 2nd comment? Your shows lift my spirit. Our home was split and 3 1/2 years later my children’s father was in a train car accident. Then our middle son died. Now a month ago, my youngest son went to sleep in Jesus after going through 2 years of pancreatic cancer. He left a wonderful legacy. A beautiful wife, 8 children, and 6 grandchildren. I’m thankful that the Lord took him out of his pain. The TN community where they live loved David. He was strong in the LORD and read and discussed the Scriptures with his family every morning at 6am and also in the evenings. He said that his first and foremost ministry was to his family. Consequently, they have all accepted Jesus as their Savior. I want to thank you for your humor and the gold nuggets that you bring out of the stories in the Bible that I hadn’t thought of before. When I’m sad, your shows give me a lift. GOD has given you a wonderful ministry that will last after you are gone. Thank you. I love the pictures of you and Diane and your lovely family. “To GOD be the glory, great things He has done!”

  6. Sharon, I loved the things you said n how you said them❤️ Your dear sister and youngest son have gone on ahead. So have your parents. We must say so many goodbyesthis side of the kingdom. I long for the Day when there won’t be any more of them. May the good Lord bless you n guard you in His complete shalom.

  7. Dear Mr Davis,

    I have watched your videos for years and your stories have helped my spirit remember Jesus is still with me when I forget to see and include Him. They have helped me to see a simpler time in my past and to acknowledge that somewhere, someday, we will all be together in heaven where I will finally get to meet you face to face…something I’ve always wanted to do, but doubt I’ll ever get the opportunity to do.

    But I’m heaven I will meet you and your wife, your daughters and their families, and your beautiful sister. I’m pretty sure she’s already met my Mom and Grama by now and they’ve led her “all over town”. They’re probably all together and enjoying that sense of peace and completeness, where there is no more confusion or pain or sorrow of any kind and where they also look forward to the day when we will all be together again.

    I wish the very sweetest of blessings to you and yours as you celebrate the life of your sister.
