In 1983 when I was very pregnant with our first daughter Laura. My husband and I went to morning mass at St. Anthony’s Church. We were very young and had no family in the US. Ray’s wife Maria was at that mass and in her big generous hearted way she made it a point to talk to us and took us back to her home for breakfast. She & Ray welcomed us into their home and from that moment on shared their family with us and “ adopted” us as their own. They gave of themselves wholeheartedly and we could rely on them to be there for us. How can mere words express how much they came to mean to us and the gratitude and love we have for Ray & Maria and their families. They came into our lives and we are so much the better for knowing them. Ray was grandpa and Santa to Laura and Christine. He was father, mentor and friend to Hygin and I and he will remain forever in our hearts, as will the entire family. Treasured friend, we miss you.

I will always be indebted to Ray for being like a grandfather to me, and for helping my parents when they first came to this country. Ray took my parents under their wing and made them feel welcome. On grandparents day at school, he attended with me because my grandparents were in another country. I am grateful for Ray for being a good friend to my father and mother. It is rare to experience friendship of that level and depth. I will always think fondly of Ray, and especially his incredible sense of humor! No matter what, he always had a smile on his face and a joke to tell.
