Death in the village.

Last weekend one of our neighbours died. Ken wasn't that old - 64 I heard. Cancer. He and his wife Sue bought a plot of land here about 25 years ago and built their own luxury bungalow.
Ken's fight with cancer started not long after he moved here and remained with him on and off over the years.

His funeral, at our church, St. Michaels' takes place on Thursday afternoon. I am unable to go but Jon will attend to represent our family.

It's at times like this that the village comes together.


  1. Sad news. Sorry to hear about your neighbour.

  2. Sad news - may God comfort all who mourn, and may friends gather round to support them through these dark days

  3. I just lost one of my best friend to brain cancer.
    I have been destroyed all week and it is not getting any better.
    Sad days indeed.

    cheers, parsnip

  4. That is one of the real pluses of living in a village, isn't it Denise?

  5. I'm so sorry, especially for his wife. How hard it must have been for her to support him to the end. I do hope he gets a good turnout and send off. My condolences to his wife, family, and friends. What a lovely place to be laid to rest, though.

  6. It must be great to live in an Archers' village. Cancer is a most horrible disease.


Thank you for your comments, always nice to know somebody has taken the time to let me know what they think.
