    Uncle Ray, Kelly, Laura, Jeff and families. We send our sympathy in the passing of our cousin Steve. I have a childhood memory of being at a dance and my big cousin Steve picking me up and dancing with me – he was always so nice to my sister Nancy and I when we would come from Winnipeg to visit all our Sask.cousins. He inherited the “teasing gene” from Uncle Ray.
