To the family of Ray New, them “Pearly White Gates to Heaven” have yet gained another Angel flying high in the Sky...I met Ray about 7 years ago at Lockheed and I would have to say he was a very caring, funny, and easy person to talk too! He always made everyone around him laugh with his country self! I am glad I was able to sit at his desk with him last Thursday and eat lunch not knowing that this was the last time I was going to see or speak to him! He had a “Heart of Gold” and I know he is up in Heaven Rejoicing! He will not be forgotten...,.

I have many fond memories with Ray growing up as a teenager at church. It is comforting to know that he is now with our Lord and Savior, this is a comfort that only a Christian can know. My prayers are with the family.

In Christ

We will forever remember Ray as a kind and loving person. Always reaching out to newcomers to the church. We remember when he first came to Northwest Atlanta Pentecostal Church. He was a blessing in his ministry of music as he loved to play the piano and his ministry to others. He will be missed but he lives on in the memories of those who love him. We feel a sadness in his passing on from this life but also a joy knowing that he is with the Lord. Our condolences go out to the New family during this difficult time.
