Some of my fondest memories growing up are of the many summers I got to spend in Kelowna with Uncle Ray and Auntie Bea, such as: all of us sleeping in the old house (somehow), learning to shoot a shotgun doing skeet in the backyard, the many get togethers at grandma & grandpas’ house, staying in the cabin at Carmi, being at a logging camp, fishing, and of course the many hours spent on the lake with Uncle Ray patiently at the wheel of the Cindy Lou.
He will be missed, but the memories remain.
