I just finished watching the video and it truly touched my heart. From start to finish the warmth of Ray's smile never waivered and shone brightly. I hope you can always remember the strength of his spirit, the beacon of light that was his life, and the warmth of his loving embrace. I know that's what I'll remember whenever I think of "Chubby Papa". ~Love Stephanie
