Do not stand at my grave and weep
I am not there I do not sleep
I am a thousand winds that blow
I am the diamond glint on snow
Do not stand at my grave and cry
I am not there- I did not die.
I am the sunlight on ripened grain
I am the gentle autumn rain
When you awake in the morning's hush
I am the swift uplifting rush
Of quiet birds in circled flight
I am the soft stars that shine at night
Do not stand at my grave and cry
I am not there- I did not die.

NICHOLSON, Kenneth Earl - 62, Halifax, NS. “The way seemed long, but the sky was bright & somehow he felt he was headed in the right direction.” It is with deep sadness that we announce the passing of Ken after a brief but courageous battle with cancer. He died peacefully at home in Halifax surrounded by his family on December 14, 2006. Ken was born in Glace Bay to James and Anna Nicholson on January 11, 1944 and was raised in the nearby community of Reserve Mines. In 1965 Ken joined the RCMP and was stationed in Ottawa and Newfoundland where he met his wife Verna of 35 years. While in Newfoundland he left the RCMP to pursue a career in Industrial Safety - a career that led him from Saudi Arabia to the Beaufort Sea. Ken’s great personality and love of people reaped a wide circle of friends and he cherished, respected and maintained these friendships down through the years. Ken is survived by his wife Verna (Vardy); son Jamie; daughter-in-law Trina and his precious grandchildren Katelyn and Joshua, Middle Sackville, NS; mother-in-law Belle Vardy, Clarenville, NL.; brother-in-law Douglas Vardy, Dartmouth, NS; brothers: Eric (Nina) Glace Bay, Timmie (Reserve Mines), Ronald (Connecticut, USA), Donald (Cindy) Abbotsford, BC, Butch (Reserve Mines); sisters: Lynn (Albert) Strang, Lower Sackville, Marjorie (Marshall) Conrod, Dartmouth and Georgina (Harold) Young, New Minas; as well as a large circle of nieces and nephews. Ken was predeceased by his mother Anna; father James and brother Joseph. A former Newfoundland hockey coach described him as a very competitive sports person, no matter if it was a practice or a championship game Ken gave his best. He was not only competitive but was a great team player and when there was a need to protect his teammates, he was there. Yet there was a softer, gentler side to Ken and this received the greatest exposure when he was with his family, talking to Verna, Jamie and Trina or playing with Katelyn and Josh. Ken will be remembered for many reasons but mostly for his warm, friendly smile, his deep sense of faith and his tremendous sense of family. He will be missed by all who had the pleasure of his acquaintance. At Ken’s request there will be no visitation. Cremation has taken place. A Funeral Mass will be celebrated December 18th, 11:00 a.m. at St. Joseph’s Church, Reserve Mines with Father Gerald Campbell officiating. Reception to follow in the Church Hall. Internment will take place in the Parish Cemetery. Funeral arrangements are under the direction of V.J. McGillivray Funeral Homes, Glace Bay, NS. A very special thank-you to Dr. Karen Clarke and the VON/Palliative care team for their exceptional care and kindness shown throughout this difficult time. Donations may be made to the Hemochromatosis Society #272 - 7000 Minoru Blvd., Richmond, BC V6Y 3Z5
