Dear Dianne – We became acquainted during our days at the Bank and since those years I had a general awareness of your late husband’s health challenges. There must have been times when things were very difficult for you but you carried the burden so well. At times like these there seems to be little those around you can do but I hope it helps to know you are thought of in your loss.
Sincerely, Butch Cook.

Diane; It is December 28th and for some reason I decided to visit Chandler’s site and have been scrolling back through the obituaries and noticed Kenny’s. As this is so long after his passing, I hope Chandler’s has a way to note that it has arrived. Kenny & I were part of a larger group of kids (David Rawding, Cameron MacLeod, Ricky Pottie, Kenny Mosher) who played a lot together in Elementary and Junior High. A favourite place was in “the Pasture” which was conveniently close to Kenny’s home on Keddy Lane. We were only in High School a year or so when he decided to enlist and headed off to start his career in the military – a brave decision for someone so young. He was always the toughest of our gang, tough in the sense of the strongest and quickest to get up and carry on when tackled in football or falling while climbing trees or running through the woods. He was always very polite with others, especially our parents, he knew how to conduct himself with adults, even if he was a bit shy. You and I of course went through high school together and like Carol, I remember when you headed off to join him in Ontario. The last time I saw Kenny was during one of my infrequent trips back to Liverpool. I think it must have been in the early 80’s, and David Rawding was also visiting – he was living outside of Bridgewater and I think had begun having his seizures. I learned that Kenny was back in town, his career cut short by illness and we headed up to your home off Waterloo to visit him. It was so good to see him in such strong spirits and to see the dedication and loving home you provided for him. You were his rock. He was a very lucky husband to have you as his wife and soul mate and you both have handled the curve ball thrown your way as Kenny did playing ball – by hitting it out of the park. I hope life is treating you and your family well and that you are adjusting well and enjoying life. You deserve it! I hope you and your children and grandchildren had a good Christmas and wish you all the best in 2016 and beyond. Take care of yourself Diane.
