    So sorry for your loss, Jan and families.
    We didn’t get to see Ken much in the past few years but remember him with fondness.
    Unfortunately we will not be able to make it to his Memorial Service.
    We will be praying and thinking of you all at this sad time.

    Our condolences to Jan and families. I believe we met Ken only once on one of our hikes but we certainly met Jan on many of our Cochrane hikes.

    Our paths crossed all too infrequently, but when they did, I was always invigorated . . . and proud to have Ken as my oldest cousin. May Ken’s spirit remain alive in you, Jan, in your entire family, and in all of us he leaves to mourn, to remember, to celebrate his life.

    Dear Jan, I’m so sorry to learn of Ken’s untimely passing and fondly remember wonderful times during our involvement with thoroughbred racing.
    My heartfelt condolences to you and the family.

    A favourite school mate from when Ken moved from his country school to school in the town of Eastend. We went our separate ways after university and reconnected in the past few years. I will treasure those times and hope Jan & I will continue to have coffee chats. I will always remember the support Ken gave me during a trying time in university. His quiet voice and calm nature will always be remembered. My condolences to Jan and the family for their loss. He will be sorely missed.

    We are so sorry for your loss. He will be missed by family and friends, but his memory will be with us all forever. Ken’s story telling and love of food was a source of fun and entertainment at all those tennis tournaments. Thinking of Ken brings a smile to my face. Sorry I will not be with you on Tuesday as I’m in New Zealand. Much love, hugs and prayers to you all!
