Dear Wannie & Corina: So sorry to hear of Kens passing - know that you are in my thoughts and prayers. It has been 39 years since I left the miramichi - miss the army in Newcastle , so many changes.- we get so busy with everyday things that we lose contact with people but never forget the people we ministered together with. Take care, Love & Prayers, Karen

We were so sorry to hear of Kens passing. Our thoughts and prayers are with you and your very expanded family at this time. Its been a lot of years since we lived on the street, but you both were among the first to welcome us there. May you find strength in your faith and family to help you through these difficult days.

Wannie and Corina, (and all the extended family and friends who knew and loved Ken). I am so sorry to hear of your loss. It has been a tough road for Ken and for you and it is bittersweet to learn that the battle is over and he is no longer with you. May you feel the Lord's very real presence at this time and also be comforted by those around you who love you so very much. Wannie & Corina, you are both very important to me. Despite the distance & separation, I have not forgotten all that you have done for me - you each were always there with a word for me when I needed it most. I thank the Lord for you and am praying that He brings you both peace in the midst of your sorrow and heartache. Karen PS: I want you to know that I made a donation today in Ken's honour to War Amps of Canada - a cause near and dear to my heart.
