God took a man with heart away from an environment without a heart.

Got to know Ken very well when he was a young worker in Lower Mainland and I was in grade school. He was a kind gentle prince and loved by all who he mingled with. Now crossed the bar and safely on the other side.
Faithful to the end of the journey.

I feel grateful to have known Ken in our early years is the work, and feel sure he has continued to be the fine, humble and faithful man right to his victorious finish. Absence, distance, time.. cannot take away the influence of a loyal and true spirit, can it?
