Owana, I was so sorry to hear about Ray. I have thought of him and you often. I have so many found memories of Ray as I worked with him at Total (Atofina). He taught me so much about credit and was a great mentor to me. I wish the best for you and your family as you deal with the loss of this very special person. My prayers will be with you during this challenging time. Peace be with you.

Owana-my thoughts and prayers are with you and your family. I cherish the memories of my high school days spent hanging out with Ray and our gang. I was so happy to reconnect with him after so many years. He was a great guy and will be missed.
