Trish, Colleen and John, and families wish to express their heartfelt thanks to relatives, friends, neighbours and work colleagues who supported them in various ways during Ken’s illness and at the time of his passing.
We have appreciated the personal messages of sympathy, cards, letters, food, flowers, tributes plus the many phone calls.
Special thanks to Parkinson’s Wairarapa and the Healthcare carers for their wonderful care of Ken, over a very long time, without them I could not have coped, to Pastor John Traill for his comforting words, and to all who travelled from near and far to be with us at the service.
