    Please forgive me for posting a non racing related thread, but I am sure that some (if not many) users will know Kenneth How, husband of Heather How and my father, from Andover WRC where they raced for many years and later West Somerset WRC.

    Ken passed away today, just a week before his 75th birthday.

    He travelled up and down the country with my mum with a variety of much-loved whippets such as Midnight Blaze, Morning Mist, Tinker's Tyke, and RCH Tinker's Moonshadow.

    Mum and dad bred a lovely litter of pups from RCH Tinker's Moonshadow x RCH Teraquinn. Sadly dad was never really able to enjoy the racing careers of the two they kept (Cloudy Moon and Gypsy Joe) due to protracted illness.

    I hope this is not an inappropriate post, but felt it was probably the best way let people know until we have a chance to make a more formal notice.

    Best wishes,

    Sarah Mills (nee How)

    The Wilsdon Gang are sorry to hear of your loss but know that comfort will be taken that he is no longer in pain and confusion. We have many memories of morning mist as she was the sister to my Bigmac and their facial expressions were so similar.

    Remember the good times and our thoughts are with you.

    RIP

    Gaye, Ray and boys

    Thank you all for your kind words. It's been a long hard road, but dad is at peace now.

    The funeral will be held at Salisbury Crematorium on Thursday 17th April at 12:15pm .

    Anyone who would like to come would be more than welcome.
