Maureen, Raymond, Stephen and Family

Ray and I were friends for almost 50 years. We worked together at Volkswagen for many years and shared some great times together.
Ray introduced me to Jawonio through Maureen and I am ever great-full. We met many times for lunch in Pearl River and shared a lot of laughs. Irene and I are so glad to have met you both in Florida last year. Ray was a great friend and we will miss him.
