To Ms Estelle Ray’s Family please accept our deepest sympathy for your lose of a precious soul. I have so many wonderful memories of her teaching us in Sunday School and Bible school at Welcome Baptist influencing the Christian women we are today. While she remained in her home as her health failed I was on her Heallth Care team and she cheered our staff always being positive about life and so very proud of her family . She shared flowers that will live on as she lives on in heaven. You are in my heart and prayers. Jane Moses
