I've known Ray since I was about 17 years old. He's been a major part of my life when he married my mom. Although Ray might of seemed to have a gruff personality once you got to know him he was a heart full of gold. You just needed to dig to get it. Ray loved to travel in their camper and when they would come see us we would have date night. Ray loved being treated special and glad I was able to take them places they wouldn't normally get to go. He never met a stranger and met many snow birds along the way which he considered them friends and looked forward to seeing them the next year. You are free to soar Ray and know you will be missed. We've got momma so she's in good hands if she'll let us.

Love you and will miss our visits.
