Raymond was a wonderful Uncle. I am so fortunate to have gotten closer to him these last several years. I will always remember his sweet smile and loving personality. He was always a shoulder to lean on and good brother to Aunt Rosie. He will be missed.

I will always remember Mr. New's warmth and kindness. He had a comforting presence that made me feel welcome right from the start, and we enjoyed finding unlikely parallels between his interest in the stock market and mine in sports. I am grateful to have known him, and my prayers are with your family.

My Uncle Raymond was a great man! He was more than an Uncle he was my buddy! I got to know him after my dad passed away. He and I talked twice a day and he always had great words of wisdom to share. He was a great mentor to me, a great husband to my Aunt Edna, a great father to his children and one of the finest men I ever had the privilege to meet. I had a blast listening to stories about him and my dad growing up together. I will miss him dearly. He was a calm in a storm and a sound voice of reason in this world today. As for me and my wife and 3 sons we will always remember my Uncle Raymond as a great man and friend.
My heart is saddened, we will all miss him, but I know we will meet him again in heaven one day.
My thoughts and prays are with my Aunt Edna, and my cousins Eddie and Debbie in these difficult times. Our Dads are probably doing a lot of catching up right now.

I always heard the kids talk about Grandaddy. He was so loved by everyone. Once I met him, it all made perfect sense.
Kind, loving, soft spoken with tremendous love for God.
He is now with our Savior, and that should give us comfort, and so we pray for God’s Grace & strength for Mrs. New, for Eddy and for Debbie during this difficult time.
Blessings
