Faye, Stephen and Andy,
We are so sorry for your lose, your dad will always be remembered for his great big smile and kind heart.
Oh and yes his love for coconut pies at our holiday dinners, I loved his out going personality because he never meet a stranger and made everyone feel so welcomed. I know Ray Jr. will always treasure the memories of helping in the pits when Andy was racing and he got to hang out with your dad and sharing in so many laughs. What a blessing he was to all your family and I know you will miss him terribly, but his suffering is over and he is a peace with our Lord in Heaven and will always been watching over you, and have a special place in your hearts. God Bless you all.
