To all my 'Seaforth Cousins', Kim, Doug, Joey, Cindy, Judy and Ray Jr., so sorry for the loss of your Dad. He was a 'stellar' Uncle too, who shared stories and teased us as little ones, and kept us on our toes while we leaned to play solo and euchre. I have fond memories of your visits to Walkerton where we played in the creek and he kept us busy fishing for minnows or chub. In later years he was a good companion to my Mom when they lost their partners. His house was always open and when she was lonely he lifted her spirits with a laugh. often taking trips to see relatives in Windsor and Guelph. Sorry to have missed this opportunity to pay my respects in person.

So sorry to hear of Rays passing. He was a great neighbor always stopping to have a chat on his walks and a big wave on his way by in his car. He will be missed in the neighborhood.

Kim & Gary & Family - please accept my condolences in the loss of your dad. Met him a couple of times at the jewelry store in Seaforth after my mom had passed away - he was a very nice man with kind words. Marg Deichert
