    It was in Swaziland South Africa where we met the Miller family. We were involved with the same mission. Ken was always involved in caring for his students through his excellent carpentry and provided support wherever he could. Interestingly we both made our homes in Sarnia after our days in Africa. We extend Fran and her family our love and prayers.
