So many memories! Where to begin? I knew Ken since I was 5, so for 26 years. His family and mine have always been close friends and neither time nor distance changed that. Ken and Nicky visited the UK several times when I was growing up but when I was 22, I was lucky enough to go and stay with them in Oz on part of a round the world trip. Seeing Ken at the airport after months of backpacking...happiness doesn't begin to describe that feeling. But last year, Ken came to England with Danny. Ken stayed in my new house with me and my now husband. They got to know each other over dinner and several beers. During his stay, Ken and I had a magical few hours when we walked the *** through the local woods. We talked about literally everything. Life, death, the past, the future. We honestly put the world to rights before returning for a few beers in the garden on a balmy summer evening. What a wonderful memory to have. Ken was a gentle, kind and loving man who made time for everyone who wanted him to. He was fortunate to have such a beautiful family and such a fantastic adventure through life. He was loved right around the world and will be missed by so many.
