Ruth, Sandy & Family, I am so very deeply sorry for your loss. I worked with Ray for several years. He always had kind words to offer and he spread his 'sunshine' everywhere. He was a very special man and loved by his co-workers! God Bless.

Ray and I were so close, really like real father and daughter. He was a really patient man to myself and to my Mom. She is missing him terribly and so do I. Thank you for your comments and I would love to see you at the services. He is my Mom's 3rd husband, widowed 3 times now.
