  • So very sorry to read of Ken’s passing. I worked with Ken at All Treat in Ingersoll. He always kept us smiling with his humour. He was very proud of you Julie and Evan and his gardens. He would sometimes bring a beautiful rose to share for my desk. May wonderful memories be with you in the days ahead.
