my family and I met Ken years ago in Dundas when there were the horse wagon rides. Every year, I'd take my daughter to go for rides. Since I was (and still am) unable to go for rides, my daughter would sit either with Ed or near him if she was by herself... so while the wagon was out and about I'd wait and talk with Ken if he was working that day. Now 20 years later, my daughter takes her kids for rides... Ken was Such a wonderful and gentle man...
We will miss him

You will not know myself or my family...but let me just say that we had one of our most memorable family memories with this lovely man. When Tammy's restaurant (in Dundas) used to hire the horse drawn rides during the Christmas season, we used to watch with our young daughter through our front window on the nights they passed down our street. One night, the wagon stopped in front of our house and our daughter ran out of the house, down the drive in her candy cane stripped nightie - no shoes. She quickly hopped up on "Santa's knee" and had a chat. If that wasn't special enough....the next week we had a knock on the door and it was Santa....with a pair of hand knit slippers for the little girl who ran down the driveway. She still has them and puts them out every Christmas. I am tearing up right now writing this. Such a special memory for all of us. We will always remember and cherish our special Santa. With much love to all......"Take Comfort in your Loving Memories"
