I received the most wonderful gift from my sister, Aggie (Agnes Jorgensen). She painted a portrait of my Dear Ken. I love how she captured his presence and his zest for life. Her ability to catch the likeness and characteristics of Ken deeply moves me.

Ken loved to go fishing in his favourite boat ‘The Minnow’ with his first mate Leonard. Like every other fishing day, Ken was always waiting for the big catch. On this particular day, we laughed a lot because his big catch was a tiny minnow. Leonard was not impressed.

Words are hard to find to thank my awesome sister for this very special gift of love. For me, this painting is so emotional and moving. It brings so many good memories and it also makes me smile.

Aggie, your art is a powerful healer.
