Evelyn and the whole Pedro Family... Ray was such a good and dear friend to my Dad. We will miss him. I bet they are having a great chat right now, catching up on all the camp news. Love you all, we are very sorry for your loss. (Tiffany - we will never forget the fun winter day with your granddad and my Dad - ice skating, a campfire and hot chocolate at camp!)
