I am so very sorry for your loss. Mr. Ray and I lived in the same neighborhood. I ran past his house daily with my son in the jogging stroller for many years when my son was little. We would see Ray around the neighborhood either walking his little dog or riding his bike, and he’d always stop to chat. As the years past, I’d run either alone or with my son riding his bike ahead of me, and again Ray and I would see each other somewhere along the route. Our chats were always so friendly and made me smile. I remember seeing him at Aldi right after the Cubs won the World Series. Oh my...he was a happy man! Ray touched my heart and I am deeply saddened with his passing.
I received this saying when I lost my dad two years ago and just think it is perfect:
Life will not be the same without him. If it were the same, we could only conclude that his life meant nothing, made no contribution. The fact that he left behind a place that could not be filled is high tribute to the uniqueness of his soul.
Mr. Ray left behind a wonderful legacy in our little community. He made everyone he met feel special and smile. Be proud of his legacy and what a wonderful gentleman he was.
