I spent a lot of time at the Able home on west Jefferson as a teenager in the 1950's. Bud was a good friend of mine. I remember them all. Our thoughts an prayers go out to the family.

The 1950's seem like yesterday and west Jefferson St will always be the old neighborhood. I haven't seen Ray in many years but I always knew we both remembered the youth we spent together. We had many good times I will never forget him or his brother Bud and his sisters. I am deeply sorry for your loss.
