    You have given so much and in doing so have helped shape our lives in so many ways forever.
    I will miss so many things about you, the list is indeed endless. Most of all I will miss you telling me how beautiful your garden is coming along (your pride and joy) and how amazing your vegie patch is going to be again this year!!
    Thank you for your unwavering strength and support and for inspiring me to challenge myself to achieve my dreams.
    The life lessons you have imparted have been invaluable and have offered guidance through often challenging times and will stay with me forever.

    I love you to the moon and back dad.

    Enjoy heavens garden dad and may there always be beautiful flowers for you to pick.

  20. Dad
    God sore that you where getting tired,
    A cure was not to be.
    So he put his arms around you
    and whispered, “Come with Me.”
    With tearful eyes, we watched you
    And saw you fade away.
    Although you where loved by so many
    We could not make you stay.
    A golden heart stopped beating,
    Hard working hands to rest.
    God broke our hearts to prove to us
    He only takes “the best.

  38. Leila and family. So sorry and sadden to hear the passing of Ken. We had our visits across the road. Maybe to swap vegies, maybe to chat and count the cats, maybe to talk concrete, whatever it was, it wasn’t a quick trip, we always enjoyed the talk, banter & laughs! The calling of “honey where’s the honey” at the door. The “I’ll be back”, “you know who said that” yep Arnold. And the many jokes, which you knew I didn’t laugh at many of them, “don’t you find that funny” “Sorry Ken I just don’t get it”. Ken promised each time he would have a better one next visit, guess we won’t heard the next one.
    Lilly thinking of you all and send our deep condolences to you and extended families. Take it easy Ken.
