Ken, I hope you know how much I loved Ray. He was the best father- inlaw I could have ever ask for. Ray was the sweetest and the most understanding person ,and was always there for his granddaughter that loved him dearly. She was Papa's girl. The last few days I enjoyed going in and sitting with him and talking. Ray you will be truly missing .
Love, Cindy Martin, Ella Weaver

Remembering all of the great times together with Ray, Eilene, and their family. From the hunting trips, the house in Panama City Beach and to all of the great times celebrating holidays together.

Rest in Peace Ray.
