Heartfelt prayers and condolences to you and your family. My husband so enjoyed Ray telling him about your farm in Weatherford that backed up to our family farm off McCarthy Drive.

We got to know Ray through the weekday morning Mass crew at St Michael's and pro-life group that met at McDonald's. He was so kind to include our son in the men's conversations. May Ray's faith be his guiding light to heaven and a beacon to all he loved. God bless you.
