In loving memory of dear Ken.
A true Gentleman with morals. A hard working man who loved his family, nature and the garden. Remembering when you worked in our offices at Morley Hall. One day you looked out of the window and said "when I retire I'm going to come back and work in the garden" and you did for many years! We always knew when it was Tuesday as it would rain most of the time, this never stopped you! Over the years you planted many cuttings, telling me where they came from etc. These will be forever memories of you Ken in our garden, thank you. We will be planting a Rowen tree in your memory, its such a beautiful tree! Wish we'd planted one earlier! Good Night, God Bless.xx

Dad - the solid rock. The place you stand secure before you jump - into rivers, into the sea, off to university, onto planes to travel the world, into parenthood, into everything meaningful you ever do.
Dad - kind, honest, loyal, generous, hard-working, courageous, full of integrity. The measure by which you see the world.

Ken gave me this rose it is in bloom right now and I think of him every time I water it - the smell is heavenly. Thank you Ken, and may God bless you. You were a lovely, kind man. I will never forget you. ❤️

Our Father kept a garden,
A garden of the heart;
He planted all the good things,
That gave our lives their start.

He turned us to the sunshine,
And encouraged us to dream:
Fostering and nurturing
The seeds of self-esteem.

And when the winds and rain came,
He protected us enough;
But not too much, because he knew..
We would stand up strong and tough.

His constant good example,
Always taught us right from wrong;
Markers for our pathway,
That will last a lifetime long.

We are our Father’s garden,
We are his legacy.
And we hope today he feels the love,
That’s here for all to see.
