Me too. Even if his cookery veered towards the *ahem*
extreme at times; remember his rabbit pie in the Soap Opera thread, anyone? And his 'trenchant' advice on child-rearing in 'Ask Sine' cheered me up no end at a time when IRL it seemed as if Mum could do no right. I'm sure he'd be glad to know that five years down the line, Miffyson is now a dab hand at laundering his own smalls!

RIP Ken, and [Votive] to SW and your family.

Only once in the many years I've been aboard this vessel have I printed out a post and taken it home so I could read it over and over again whenever I wanted or needed to. That post has given me comfort and peace ever since. That post was by Kenwritez.

What more is there to say? A true master of the medium, a wit to rival any and a wisdom second to none. A truly sad loss for us all, but especially for his family.

I'm sad and shocked to hear this. I'm afraid I can only judge him by his posts, since I never met him IRL. But what a fantastic poster he was!

It is All Souls' Day today, an appropriate time for a prayer from the heart that he may join the glory of God in all love and peace. [Votive]

He was life-enhancing, which isn't something you run into very often either. Truly a rare bird.

Ken's kindness, originality and wit were so outstanding that if he had had only one of these characteristics, he would still have been one of my favorite posters.

Into thy hands, O merciful Savior, we commend the soul of thy servant Ken, now departed from the body. Acknowledge, we humbly beseech thee, a sheep of thine own fold, a lamb of thine own flock, a sinner of thine own redeeming. Receive him into the arms of thy mercy, into the blessed rest of everlasting peace, and into the glorious company of the saints in light.

Prayers for the Sturdy Wench and for his other family members. It was a privilege to have trod these boards with him.

For Ken, in heaven:

The Seraphim, six-wingèd, many-eyed,
Cherubim upon their shoulders dance a joyous 'lectric-slide,
While the Thrones and the Dominions
Soar aloft, borne on their pinions,
As the Virtues and the Powers
Dance a polka 'round the side.
Principalities will keep the beat
With their stomping, shining feet;
But the Angels and Archangels steal the show
As they hold Ken in their arms and rock him
Slow, slow, slow....

I just remembered that I nominated Kenwritez for Shipmate of the Year in last year's Simmies. He didn't win: ken was the winner -- ironic because when I first came to the Ship I used to confused ken with Kenwritez. I was so happy last year to have Kenwritez back and posting again ... I still can't quite grasp that he's gone.

This is such a shock - I've only just found out.

Kenwritez was such a big presence on the Ship in every single respect. He wrote wonderfully and so very entertainingly on so many things - Hawaiian shirts, recipes (including for long pig - yikes), childrearing, his Sturdy Wench and always his faith in God.

May God keep Ken's family and all those he loved safe and comfort them.

May you rest in peace and rise in glory, Kenwritez. May your soul and the souls of all the faithful departed, through the mercy of Christ, rest in peace.

I'll miss you. [Votive]

when I read the news, the first thing I thought was "Ship of Fools" because this is where I met Kenwritez & fell in love with his voice & mind & spirit. I was so blessed to meet him & the Sturdy Wench in person; they were so gracious with me. It's probably been about a year since I posted on SoF and reading through the memorial posts of other mutual & virtual friends makes me aware of how much I appreciate this community & how much I've missed it--

Prayers for the Sturdy Wench and all of KenWritez's relatives and friends, both shippie and non-shippie. He's a great loss to us all, even those who only knew him from his scintillating writing style.
