I'm sorry to hear that Ray has passed. I'm a first cousin, my dad was Elmer Biggs. I spent many summers with Ray and his family at Pennington Gap, VA. We always came in from Cleveland, Ohio to visit grannie Biggs. We had some good times in those days. I pray that the Lord will hold you all close and comfort you in this time as only He can do. My family and I will hold you all up in prayer.
Love and Prayers
Cousin Shelby (Biggs) Long and family .
