I have always thought that Uncle Raymond was such a gentle man with a gentle voice as well.
The only time I heard his voice raised was when he was preaching the word of God and got excited about it. He was a wonderful man and it saddens my heart that he’s no longer with us.
Love and prayers for my cousins Phil, Teresa and Sue.
