I am sorry to hear of the families loss here on earth. Through my connection with Ruth I came to know Ray at the Free Methodist Church.
Exemplified his name. Always a positive word. I know many Family and friends who have gone before him will be happy to see him!
I loved seeing him and Ruth walk on Kinser Pike as I would head to work.
