May his memory be a blessing...

We both know what a firm grip God has on your shoulder, and now moving through these times in our lives, we have the opportunity to let that grip get even stronger! Thank God, and may God bless you & your family!!

Mr. B was truly a gift to the education of so many. My children thrived under his guidance and thrilled at his wonderfully creative lessons. We all loved and admired him. Ken left his mark—the world is a better place.

My most sincere condolences and prayers to the Bronsil family. I was one of Ken's students at the Montessori Academy of Cincinnati in the 2006-2007 school year. Ken was one of the best teachers I had throughout the entirety of my school career. He always went the extra mile to make sure I was able to succeed in his lessons and classes. It was a privilege to have been taught by Ken and he will be missed.

Beth, you and Ken are the best neighbors and human beings that anyone could ever hope to meet. He touched everyone with his kindness, encouragement, and wonderful sense of humor. We're sure that all of many students that he taught and nurtured over his lifetime are the people who are now trying to make the world a better place. We thank Ken for the memories, He will be missed but certainly never forgotten.

Ken and I were close friends in the Jesuits. I appreciated his goodness and his humor. In reading these comments there is a great testimony to a very good guy, full of grace and blessing for so many. He made a great choice and so did Beth in their fifty years of marriage, family, and Montessori training.

So sorry to hear of Mr. Bronsil's passing. He was my teacher at North Avondale for a few years back in the '90s & I remember him fondly- full of warmth, compassion, patience, and a genuine passion for teaching. His classroom always felt fun and rarely like a school chore, and he was excellent at recognizing strengths and weaknesses in learning opportunities for every individual student. Very thankful to have had him as a teacher for those years. Deepest sympathies to his family and friends.

Beth, how fondly I remember both you and Ken from our days at IPM. Times with you were very special as both of you are special. May God's arms hold you tenderly.
