Father in heaven, we thank you because you made us in your own image and gave us gifts in mind, body and spirit. We thank you now for Kenneth, and what he meant to each of us. As we honour his memory, make us more aware that you are the one from whom comes every perfect gift, including the gift of eternal life through Jesus Christ. Amen.
