Sorry to hear of John's passing away. While he was a first cousin we did not see him very often in adulthood. I remember mother, Blanche, Aline's sister, taking us to visit the Railton's in Sintaluta when I was a child. John had amazing metal Tonka toys and we had great fun playing with him and his toys. And there were many wonderful times at the cottage of Ivan and Honorine Partridge on Katepwa lake, when the aunts and uncles and families would gather. We have several pictures of John when he was very young. One of John and Jacqueline about 1946-47 is shown.
