  1. Dear Ken, thanks for being a great uncle, full of jokes, interest and cheeky questions.

    You undoubtably inspired me with your love of plants and I have vivid memories of your nursery from my childhood visits.

    I am glad I got to talk to you in January on the phone.

    I’m sending my love to all the family from New Zealand. I am glad to be able to watch the funeral from afar.
