Aunt Linda and Family,
My thoughts & prayers are with you. I know Uncle Ray’s in no pain, remembers everything and is in a wonderful place with his Parents, Sister Barbara, other family and lots of friends. He enjoyed a great life, loving wife & family; he takes that love with Him and leaves us with wonderful memories, until we see Him again.

I loved his smile, always making jokes. So glad we saw him and most of you at Mom’s 80th at Pirate’s Cove. Mom forgot many things with her Dementia; but always talked about her Brother and their younger days and especially their dance at her 80th party. Uncle Ray’s tribute video was beautiful.

Praying our Lord comforts your hearts and gives you peace today and in the days to come and blesses your life with treasured memories of Uncle Ray.
All my Love, Kathy
