I never knew Ken, but I always read his posts with interest and amusement... so I felt that I knew him, IYKWIM.

May he rest in peace in God's kingdom. Prayers for all his family and friends left behind! [Votive]

Only just seen this.

My heart and thoughts and prayers go out to you, Persephone Hazard.

I loved Ken.

Please could someone PM me details for the funeral service.

Funeral details.

Originally posted by Persephone Hazard:
My father's funeral will be at 12pm on Friday June 13th, at St John's Church (addresses at the end). After the service, some will proceed to the burial at Brockley Cemetery, while others will stay at the church for tea and such. We'll all reconvene at the Rising Sun (dad's local of twenty-five years, down the hill from the church) for the kind of wake he would have wanted - lots of beer, lots of celebration, and lots of remembrance. Here are some other things you might want to know:

  • My dad hated cut flowers; he called them "murdered plants". As such, in lieu of flowers please consider making a donation to St John's Church - an institution to which he was devoted for a quarter of a century.
  • Everyone is welcome to come to the funeral service. If you only knew him online but would quite like to come, come. If you'd want to be there but would feel more comfortable accompanied by (for example) your partner who is someone my dad never met, bring them.
  • Everyone is also welcome at the burial, but space will be a little limited - we will after all be at the graveside. As such, some of you may wish to stay behind and rejoin the family and close friends at the pub afterwards.
  • Even if you can't take time off work for the funeral (or otherwise can't be there), we'd love you to consider coming to the wake in the pub that evening anyway. After all, it's a Friday night - it's what he would have wanted!
  • If you'd like to visit him in the Chapel of Rest prior to the funeral, you're very welcome to - please ask me for details of how to do this and I will get them to you.

St John's can be found at: St John’s Church, St John’s Vale, SE8 4EA
The Rising Sun is: 120 Loampit Hill, SE13 7SN

Despite the confusingly different addresses, the two are actually on the same road as each other - ten minutes walk in a straight line downhill!

Any questions, please just ask.

We can't attend in person, but will be there in spirit.

I seldom pass through here these days and managed to miss this. I am in disbelief.

Ken and I spent over a decade rubbing each other up the wrong way and butting heads. He was one of those people with whom I disagreed on much but wanted to agree with on so very much because of the respectfully forthright manner and firm conviction with which he expressed what he believed to be right, and good, and true. I hope that he knew of my respect for him.

May his memory be eternal.

O God of spirits and of all flesh, Who have trampled down death, overthrown the devil, and given life to your world; do now, O same Lord, give rest to the soul of your departed servant in a place of brightness, a place of refreshment, a place of repose; where all sickness, sighing, and sorrow have fled away. Pardon every transgression which he has committed, whether by word or deed or thought. For You are a good God Who loves mankind; because there is no man who lives yet does not sin, for You alone are without sin, your righteousness is an everlasting righteousness, and your word is truth.

For You are the Resurrection, the Life, and the Repose of your servant who has fallen asleep, O Christ our God, and to You we ascribe glory, together with your Father who is without origin, and your all-holy, good, and life-creating Spirit, now and ever and to the ages of ages. Amen.

I don't think I can make it to the funeral (I'm housesitting then and the journey's a bit of a trek, and don't want to leave the house empty for that long) but will raise a glass to Ken and light a candle for him.

Definitely would like to raise a glass to him at Greenbelt too.

I hope so, and I know Miss Amanda would like a report for the benefit of Shippies on the wrong side of London/the Pond/the Equator.

I'm willing to do it, but I don't want to step on toes if someone who knew him better is keen. I am also happy to collaborate (ie compare notes in the Rising Sun afterwards and share the draft).

I was hoping to go to the funeral but would have to take the whole day off work to do so, which isn't practical (especially with the implications for the job I do). So I will be there in spirit and supporting with prayers.

Several days (years) late and coming up short. I logged back into the Ship today after an aeon and this is just heartbreaking.

Love and hugs to family and Shipmates missing and mourning him.

Ken, adieu. We never saw eye to eye but I still loved you. Happy trails.

Our tickets are bought, so I will be there with TME and the Elf Lass (who will almost certainly need feeding at some point during the service, but otherwise is pretty laid back so shouldn't be disruptive. We'll try and sit on the end of a pew so we can make a quick getaway to calm her down if she gets too moany). We are staying with my parents so heading to get the train back about 3.30, so won't be at the wake.

Jack the Lass, so pleased you are able to come. I knew you would want to but figured that it's really quite a distance.

Would anyone be up for meeting up beforehand? I seem to remember we did that for Gambit's funeral and I for one found it quite helpful to go into the church with people.

Due to the vagaries of early morning rail travel from the South West, I'm expected to arrive at St Johns station an hour before the service starts. Was planning to use the time to have some breakfast, but I'm happy to meet up with people as well.

Be aware that very few local trains stop at St Johns, but many stop at Lewisham which is not far, which may give you more options in your journey planning.

I don't know what there is right by the church (Persephone will know better than me) but there will certainly be places by both Lewsisham and New Cross Gate stations, which are each about a mile walk from St. Johns, in opposite directions.

Nowhere near a mile! Half a mile at most, and each in a straight line at that. Not a brilliant spot for cafes, though there are certainly *some* all along the way.

I'd really, really like it if someone MWed the service, by the way. I love that there's such a report of Gambit's funeral, and I've gone back to it often (including just now, which prompted me making this post!).

A picture is worth a thousand words, but it's a lot easier to make up a thousand words than one decent picture. - ken.

We need someone to MW it so we can share in the experience!

As I said upthread, I am willing to do it, but I would like other people's input as well. I have lined up a volunteer to monitor the start, which I might miss as I shall be stuck up the bell tower until the last minute.

But yes, there will certainly be a report! If anyone else wants to take it on, I will step back and let you do so.

Shocking. In the midst of life we are in death. Light and refreshment eternal.

At 11 o'clock or thereabouts in the bell tower, please Spike. The rest of them, I dunno.
