I grew up in the same church the Shelton family attended. Raymond would always give everyone a hug, as he would greet people at Sunday service. He and Lyda were always so sweet and good Christians. I love this family so much. My thoughts and prayers are with the family at the loss of a such wonderful man.

I am so sorry for your loss. I really miss my great neighbors but knowing that Mrs. Shelton has been so happy there has made it better. Will treasure the across the fence talks that we had over the many years. He will truly be missed. Such good people.
