I remember when the family would arrive in Penticton at our home for a visit we would immediately go to the lake for a swim day or night and it usually was dark! It was so much fun and a good memory. I think Uncle George was the driving force behind these late night swims. Wonderful to see his happy smiling face again in the photo. Thanks for thinking of me. Would love to be with the family again won’t make it this Saturday but please come see us if you are ever in the Okanagan. Rest In Peace Uncle George. Love Colleen Cutler.
