Ray and Joyce was one of the first couples I was introduced to when I attended my first square dance at Kittyhawk's Dance Club. I noticed their friendly demeanor right away. And they were that way every time after that! Ray, we will miss you only for awhile. One day when we reach that shore, I just imagine you greeting us in that same friendly way.
