My friend, who taught me to love every second of life. He planted the real meaning of love in my heart. He was well cared for by his life partner, who always put Ray first the last word s I said to Ray was"I love u Ray" and I really meant it.

Martin, Charles & Family, My Thoughts & Prayers are w/you. I so remember Ray delivering my family's papers on Leslie Ave., with his never ending panache & bluster. Seeing him in later years in Lenox and Pittsfield was always a walk down memory lane. Charles,you and Ray will always be a loving couple; that part never ends.

Big Brother,

You showed me a lot of things,
I learned a lot I didn't know,
But you forgot to teach me one last thing
How to let you go,
I know you didn't mean to leave,
Sometimes we have no choice,
I miss being your little sister,
Hearing my name called by your voice,
I wish I got to say "I Love You"
Before you were giving to the sky,
If god could grant me one last wish
I'd ask to say "Goodbye"
You always meant a lot to me,
I could never love you less,
I Know It's True When They Say
He only takes the best~
Rest in Paradise,
Love you to the moon and back...

I will miss your laugh, your jokes, and your mischief..Thank you for all the memories and the laughs.
