In Loving Memory of
Kenneth Darcy "Ken" Preston
July 6, 1967 - July 13, 2004

Our Ken

Ken was born on July 6, 1967, the youngest of 2 boys. He graduated from high school in 1985, then took a business course. At the time of his passing he was employed with the government.
Ken was an honest man and treated everyone equally.
He was a great son, husband, father and friend.

Ken Preston was a quiet unassuming man who went about his business in a professional and courteous manner. Thatís not to say that he didnít have opinions Ė he did, but he expressed them with care and compassion.
He was kind and generous to the point of being soft-hearted. His family and home were important to him
and he demonstrated that in the way in which he respected and encouraged them.

Spending time at the lake was how Ken unwound and relaxed. Fishing with family and friends gave him many happy times.
His dream was to build a home at Tobin Lake. Sadly, that did not happen. On July 13, 2004, Ken had a massive heart attack at the Lake and went to join his father in Heaven.

We Do Not Need A Special Day

We do not need a special day
To bring you to our minds
The days we do not think of you
Are very hard to find

Each morning when we awake
We know that you are gone
And no one knows the heartache
As we try to carry on

Our hearts still ache with sadness
And secret tears still flow
What it meant to lose you
No one will ever know
Our thoughts are always with you
Your place no one can fill
In life we loved you dearly
In death we love you still

There will always be a heartache
And often a silent tear
But always a precious memory
Of the days when you were here

If tears could build a staircase
And heartaches make a lane
We'd walk the path to Heaven
And bring you home again

We hold you close, within our hearts
And there you will remain
To walk with us throughout our lives
Until we meet again

Our family chain is broken now
And nothing seems the same
But as God calls us one by one
The chain will link again.
Written by Connie Dyer

Ken was married July 29, 1990, and his daughter was born March 9, 1996.

The Broken Chain

We little knew that morning
that God was going to call your name.
In life we loved you dearly,
In death we do the same.
It broke our hearts to lose you,
you did not go alone;
for part of us went with you,
the day God called you home.
You left us peaceful memories,
your love is still our guide;
and though we cannot see you,
you are always at our side.
Our family chain is broken
and nothing seems the same,
but as God calls us one by one,
the Chain will link again...

And I will light a candle for you
to shadow all the darkness and bless the times we knew
Like a beacon in the night the flame will burn bright
and guide us on our way
Oh today I light a candle for you.

Seasons come and go and I'm weary from the change
Keep on moving on -- you know it's not the same
And when I'm walking all alone
Do you hear me call your name?
Do you hear me sing the songs we used to sing?

And I will light a candle for you...

You filled my life with wonder -- touched me with surprise
Always saw that something special deep within your eyes
And through the good times and the bad
We carried on with pride
I hold on to the love and life we knew

And I will light a candle for you...
Oh today I light a candle for you.

The mention of my child's name
may bring tears to my eyes,
But it never fails to bring music to my ears.
If you are really my friend,
let me hear the music of his name!
It soothes my broken heart and sings to my soul!

To Margaret and ANGEL Ken

Your Heaven day is again here
What am I suppose to do
When I don't feel you near

I am with you Mom always
In everything you say and do
Though you can't see or hear me
So please for me, don't be blue

Every ANGEL has a window
It is a star, one is mine
That day when GOD calls you
You will have one, in time

Until then Mom, every day
Open your heart and look up
I watch over you always
And I protect you too
