Janet, Robin, Margaret and families --- my shoulders drooped a little when I heard of your dad's passing. I don't know if I have ever met a nicer, kinder man that Ray Hutchins. I always held him in the highest regard as he deserved it. You have many wonderful memories that will keep him alive in your hearts forever --- hold tight to those memories and talk about them often. God bless. Nancy (Gowen) Thornton, Macon, GA
