Gordy and I connected with Ray and Ilene when they bought, year after year, two of our Seahawks tickets, so we got to sit next to them and swap stories about our families as we cheered on the Hawks. Our son John was about eight, I think, when Ray took us out on their boat to fish, which was a first for John. (And he got to pee over the side!) We kept in touch through the years, sharing the ups and the downs. I will always remember Ilene and Ray with a smile on my face. Such generous and kind and thoughtful folks. We were blessed to have them in our lives...and all because Gordy placed an ad in the Seattle Times.
