  6. [i]Dear Aunt Audrey, Your Children, Grand-Children, Great-Grand Children & Family Siblings.
    Uncle Ken will be sadly missed by so many friends and family outside of that great family that You & Uncle Ken raised. You both gave so much to the family fun that you guys always endured. Uncle Ken was often quiet & shy but always had those rosey cheecks & smile with his eyes that could brighten the day. When we would stop by for a visit Uncle Ken would speak with a soft tone & was always interesting to listen to some of his stories. Then if you were lucky enough to catch a peek at the garden, you may as well just gave up right then if you had plans to enter anything in the Fall Fair. We always had to go see what Uncle Ken & grandkids had entered. You had better been really good to go up against the Farr Family. Aunt Audrey to you, we will always have in our hearts. We will always
    be grateful for the love you shared & the door always open. We thank you from our hearts & we will never forget. The quiet man who touched so many lives in every way. Aunt Audrey you are in our thoughts always & forever.
    With love Lucie, John & Michael
