As we hear countless stories about heart-warming Christmas gifts and gestures, one incident in Cymru, Wales stands out.
Owen Williams had a wonderful elderly neighbor named Ken who recently passed away. Owen and his family were apparently exceptionally good neighbors to the elderly gentleman and Ken made sure that his own daughters knew that.
Ken was a former salvage diver, seaman, carpenter, and baker. He lived an active, adventurous life. The first time Owen met him, Ken was bouncing a 20-foot ladder across the face of his house, and Ken was on top. He was 83 years old at the time. Wow!
He always promised Owen, Owen’s wife, and Owen’s little girl that he’d live to be 100 years old. When it became apparent to Ken that he wouldn’t be able to keep that promise, he made plans to always be a part of this young family’s Christmas tradition. So imagine Owen’s surprise when Ken’s daughter came to visit with a card.
Owen tells the story in a series of tweets.
