I'm saddened to hear this news and my memories are always of seeing the two of you happy people together..In Arizona, and at Dances , Cruises and recently at the Swimming Pool, where lately, you've both been missed. Marg was a lovely, cheerful lady.
My heart goes out to you Ray and all your Family at this the saddest of times.
