Condolences & Memories (2 entries)

  • Dear Henri, Doreen & boys: Many years the Kennedy and Van Mol family have enjoyed connections with nature, the land and conservation that are as our world should be. The summer I spent on the Van Mol farm is a wonderful memory. John was awake before dawn, milking and doing a few early morning tasks. Lucy was typically between the kitchen and their garden. I helped build the 1800(0) bushel steel grain bin and that summer John built a plow out of old grater blades. It was so heavy we couldn't lift it and Henry had neighbor "Stan" come and pick it up the plow by himself. Lucy's meals were as family suppers and dinners are supposed to be. The fresh cream and butters had no chemicals. John would lie down on the living room floor for a rest after lunch and beyond that he was always flat out with every task that needed to be done on their section. I hunted on the farm and on the lake using a blind my grandfather made, decoys of my fathers and decoys I left. Many years have gone by since the origins of the Kennedy's and Van Moles, but the basics of good family working together remains the most valuable human resource we have in out troubled world. with love, DArcy - Posted by: DArcy Kennedy (friend for generations) on: Jun 09, 2021
