To Ray's family,
I was deeply saddened to hear of his passing. I wish I knew in time to have come to the service. I have known him since I started working in the solid waste program at DHEC. He had a couple of projects with me. I will miss him a lot. He was a great man. Prayers to his family in this time of sorrow.
