Very sorry for your loss. I was very lucky to have known Ray. I also had the pleasure to work with him while home from college in the summer.

A. tip of the hat to you, Ray. You've been an absolutely great friend and brother-in-law for all these years and now you've taken the great leap, from a sick-bed directly into jesus' arms. Keep an eye out for us, we'll catch up with you a little further down the road. Blessings to all of the family and friends.
