It is hard to believe that Ray is no longer around. He was such a special individual...always a smile & story to tell.I still give a silent hello as I pass the camp on Penage.
Great Friend

The Steel's and the Forbom's go way back. Back to the "good ol' days when Ray and my Dad worked together. There was never a Steel celebration that the Forbom's were not included. There was never a summer on Penage that the Forbom's were not part of. I especially loved your Dad and my mother will be heartbroken "that he is gone". I know that he and Dad are right now having a pint and trying to figure out how to hotwire something. Rest Easy Mr. Forbom

Love Leslie, Lina & the Steel Family
