Condolences & Memories (1 entries)
To the Family of my Dear Uncle Steve: Tony and I are so sorry that we will not be able to attend the celebration of Uncle Steve's life later this week. As we have been living in the Okanagan Valley for the past twenty years and due to the restrictions of CoVid19 we will not be able to be with family at his memorial service. I do however wish to say a few words on Uncle Steve as well as the late Auntie Nellie. They both were the greatest and because they didn't have children of their own, all their nieces and nephews became part of their immediate family. Christmas was just one reason they treated us as their own as something special was always under the Christmas Tree for us. They always went out of their way to help our out e.g.: Uncle Steve would never miss an opportunity to help my Dad with many things; and Auntie Nellie taking us to the dentist in the summertime when my Mom and Dad were unable to. We were always treated very special during these visits! Along with Auntie Nellie's wonderful cooking, Uncle Steve would get the barbeque going to complete the delicious meal. A treasure was always purchased for us during our stay. There were also many times when they honored us by spending the weekend in our tiny house and we would always create special memories with them. Like for instance: the Saturday night they attended our church banquet and only one particular time did my Dad and Uncle Steve manage to get themselves "over the limit" much to the dismay of Auntie Nellie and my Mom. Times that later we were all able to laugh about! Because Uncle Steve worked the night shift, and Auntie Nellie being the exceptional housekeeper that she was, Uncle Steve soon learned to be on his guard when he returned from work in the dark, tired, but unaware that some furniture had been moved. Of course he only remembered it to be as it was when he left the house prior to his shift. He took no time at all to be very careful every night that things were not always the same as he had left them. Uncle Steve and Auntie Nellie adored each other and we did the same in return. When we were children we did not realize that some day they would no longer be with us. We thank the Good Lord for the time He gave us to enjoy them and the many, many precious memories they left us. Uncle Steve and Auntie Nellie: we will always love you and you will forever remain in our hearts. We are happy to know that you are now together again and someday we will all reunite. Rest in peace dear ones! All our love, Niece Valerie and Husband Tony. - Posted by: Valerie (Krawchuk) and Tony Kent (Stankewich) (Niece) on: Aug 02, 2020
