goodbye, ken

I received very sad news today. My ol' island friend Reenie called to tell me that her dad had recently passed away. Ken, a US military man, moved to Nanaimo way back in the late seventies to work at the US naval base in Nanoose Bay. I had the pleasure of meeting and getting to know him and his wonderful wife, Jo through Reenie, who I met during grade 10. Even after her parents moved back to the states, we stayed in touch via Christmas cards and such.

We were lucky enough to have a chance to visit with them during a trip they made to Nanaimo last summer. Sure glad we took the time to go over and see them.

Goodbye to the wonderful man who always reminded me of Santa.

You will be truly missed.
