    How I will miss Ken, my “best friend” cousin. We grew up together in McGill and Ely and all the family gatherings and celebrations. I know I am not the only person that will sorely miss him because his friendliness and joy of life spread a wide swath. My prayers of comfort and condolences to the rest of our family and all his friends.
