Rune stone

Today I did visit a newly found Rune Stone (and fragment) in the rural Haninge area, I did try to read it, but the sun was behind gray clouds and the lack of shadows made it hard for me to see the runes.

My first try to translate this stone is: "kunaR : auk:ulfR : auk : sighiainmR : litu:?isa : ???in : ai_: halftan : fa[th]rR : sin : ku[th] : hial (bi: ) - <: ant : hans>".

In more mordern language it can be, "Gunnar and Ulf and Sig??? let rais stone after their father Halfdan. God help his spirit". Mine translation may be wrong, for I do not read runes so often nowadays and I did not see the text so clearly on the rune stone and we did not spend so much time here.

The last letters of the "halbi" is standing outside of the ornament and ":ant:hans" is standing on the side of the stone. The "a" in the word "father" is written in the lock that ties the snake to the cross.
