I was so sad to hear the passing of Ray. I had the sincere pleasure of meeting Ray and experiencing Edna’s fine cooking many years ago while dating Michel Bourget. My favourite memory is Ray in that beautiful teal colour restored Truck! May my thoughts and prayers be with you in this difficult time. Hugs to all.
Love Kris Rob Bailey and Jade

Deepest sympathy to the Pusch family at this difficult time. We wish you strength, comfort and courage in the days ahead.

Ray was an exceptional man, true friend and a hard working, dedicated soul. I will always fondly remember our family visits - Ray making sure I got a slow, docile horse for my ride, Edna's highly polished, slippery floors and the ever vocal, Sporty the dog, welcoming us into their home! Thank you for the wonderful memories...

Your family will always be in our hearts and thoughts.

Our family is so sorry to hear of Rays passing and we wish to send our support and condolences. our family was and is blessed to call the Ray Pusch family our friends. Growing up there was nothing better than Mom and Dad saying that we were going over for a visit. Our families were close to the same age and we always found fun and sometimes mischief whenever we got together. Memories are the windows of our lives, sometimes sad and sometimes happy, but they shape our life. The memories that I have of this time in my life are rich, so thank you Ray and your wonderful family. God bless you all.

Dear Edna and Family,

Hank was just saying how he had known Ray for so many years and how he had even worked with him years ago. He remembers the two of you out at the farm raising your family and we found it interesting that we were neighbours with you again for a short time in Barr Manor. We are thinking of you in your time of loss and offer our sympathies to all of you.
