I would consider Mr. Best my church boyfriend. I always enjoyed sitting with him if I had come to mass alone, He always welcomed my with a friendly smile. What a great father and a great man he was to his wife and family. I hold you all in my prayers

Kent & Meg are devastated and feel so helpless being so far away. Ray was the Patriarch of the Healy/Cummings family. He will be sorely missed.

On behalf of the Gordon Family (Bruce, Gail and Joan and our families) we would like to extend our deepest sympathy for your loss. Some of our fondest memories were the family parties. I remember one time when I believe Ray was home on leave and we were probably going to Dick's in Ipswich with Ray at the wheel of a station wagon going down old Route 1 which was a road modeled after a rollercoaster. Ray drove like he flew. What a ride. I also remember a buzzing of the family home in Jackson Street when he would fly into Boston to pick up lobsters for the Officers Club. We have so many great memories and they all centered around family. We are blessed to be part of the extended family and will cherish the memories of the good times forever.
