I am very sorry that Ken passed on. Remember him, and part of him will always be with us. All the best for his family in their time of mourning.

I was very lucky to know him, even if just for a little while. I will miss him much. Peace and comfort to all those who miss him.

I hope no one thinks it presumptuous of me. I ordered a planter with green plants and some flowers to make it look nice, from the Brothers of Briar. A local flower business that said they would make sure it got there for Sunday. I hope someone in the family will like it.

Carlos - if you PM me, I'd be glad to send you a little money your way for that. I know how expensive it can be to send flowers having just gone through a funeral here in Indy this week.

Sincerely,

Martin

Very sad news. I have enjoyed his posts over the years, here and at Knox. I always read him as a very kind person. RIP

I only had a few encounters with him, but he was a great guy from what I knew from his posts and definitely a key member of BoB. My condolences.

Been away from the BoB for a week or so. This is heartbreaking news to return to. Dock and Ken's family, as well as my BoB family, I am so sorry. May God bless and encourage everyone in whose heart Ken held a special place.

Just read of Ken's passing today. Very sad news indeed. He will be missed here at Brothers of Briar. Ken was a true Brother of the Briar to many of us. My thoughts and prayers to his family.

Thanks Carlos for sending the flowers.

After taking a bit of a break from pipes and the forum for a few weeks due to illness, this is the worst of things to return to. I never knew him personally or dealt with him but he was a highly regarded member and held in great esteem to all. He will truly be missed by us, his brothers. I pray his family finds some solace in our community not solely for the sake of their own, but in remembrance of Ken himself.

I went to Kenny's house in Abington,Ma, just outside of Boston today per request of his dear wife Mary. Ken's home is your typical late victorian that was converted into two apartements. Ken and Mary lived on the second floor. It was a small, wood paneled two bedroom affair with an eat in kitchen. One spare bedroom was filled with two large, commercial duty shelving units. These housed Ken's imense tobacco collection. His bulk hoard in all sorts of odd jars dominated with only a few dozen assorted tins. Kens pipes were housed along with his computer in a large, glass curio directly next to he and Mary's bed in the other bedroom. This made me smile no end. Quite a few of Ken's bigger money pipes were absent and I was informed by Mary that he had been selling a few things here and there over the last year to keep the bill collectors at bay. Ken new two years ago that his liver had gotten worse and that his days on this earth were soon to be over but he told no one, not even Mary. She has only a couple of weeks left at the house herself before moving a couple of towns over to live with a friend. All and all, she was relaxed and in good spirits. She shared pics of her and a younger Kenny and gave me a pipe tool that she she said had been in his pocket for as long as she knew him.

A deal was struck and I bought the pipes and tobacco. I lack the insane amout of it would take to list and sell them now but I'll keep everytone informed. For now, I can't answer e-mails of inquiry about anything. Please respect that. I'm working 16 hours a day and spending the rest of my time in the gym affraid

DPG, I'm sure Ken would have wanted you to step in this way. Mary will do good by you.

I know what you mean Martin, to have something of his would be nothing short of an honor. As soon as you're ready I'm sure the board is too.

You're the man Dock! Not only for stepping up and taking care of that for her but also for giving us a little peek into his life. Thanks!
