Ray was a wonderful person. I will miss him so much as well as all of the times we played cards. I really always looked forward to going down and playing Gin with him. I just wished one time that I could have beaten him at the game. He was so much fun to be around. He was the best!I wished that I had known all of you as well as I knew him. He will be so greatly missed and all my thoughts and prayers are with you in your loss.

Fuller Family,

We use to have so much fun with Rayme (as we called him) when Lawrence and Ida would come over to visit our Mother and Father or vice versa. Sorry we lost touch through the years. We offer our heartfelt condolences.
