ADD A MEMORY

So many memories can’t put them all. The year you and your siblings stick me in a box and wrapped me up and took me to my mom and told her you had a gift for her. The year I wanted to dress as a cowboy and you let me borrow that big belt buckle that was bigger than my stomach and I couldn’t sit down. When you took all of the cousin’s stuck us in tía’s car and tried to teach us how to drive. Your famous lasagna. Your cooking lessons. Life lessons. I can go on and on. The time you scared the bejesus out of me with that damn Ouija board. Anytime we wanted something we would run over to your house and have you guys call my mom and you would make things happen. Dancing and singing. When I was going to compete in UIL and you had me read and reread and giving me the confidence to stand in front of the judges. Ay Relleno te fuiste pero nos quedan los recuerdos. Un besote

Muchos recuerdos, en particular siempre viene a mi mente que Ray fue quien nos llevó a mi y a mi mamá a conocer lo que sería mi Colegio en Uvalde; además de eso me dejó manejar de regreso a Eagle Pass, el me dio la confianza de animarme a manejar en carretera , desde ahí he recorrido miles de kilómetros al volante. Siempre en nuestros corazones. Descansa en paz Primo. ♥️

I am truly going to miss Ray. My best memories are of us standing at the grill, telling jokes, telling stories and him showing his love through his fine grilling skills, there was nothing Ray couldn't grill, or a joke he couldn't tell. In both, his timing was impeccable.

He is survived by a loving wife, three wonderful children and he is survived by his sister, Adrienne Demming-Towner. I know they will all miss him.

¿Mi hermano Ray, quien lo puede olvidar? ¡Su sonrisa iluminaba no solo un cuarto si no al mundo entero! Su afán por vivir se contagiaba con tanta facilidad. Tanta, tanta historia encumbrada entre nosotros que es difícil marcar 54 años de recuerdos en un espacio que muy apenas podría cubrir una sola memoria. El accidente de la moto de la cual nunca supo mami hasta anos después, y esa vez que rechazó mi llamada por cobrar, yo llorando, ¡y Ray con unas carcajadas que que bárbaro! Voy a extrañar mi llamada diaria, mas sé que celebra en el cielo con mi mami y Edwin. No se olviden de guardarme un lugarcito cuando ya sea mi tiempo.
Tal vez su luz terrestre no este con nosotros, pero en su esposa veo el gran amor que siempre le tendrá, en las sonrisas de Jaclyn, Evelyn y Ray veo un amor inquebrantable, fuerza irreprimible y el recuerdo de la grandeza que deja mi hermano ahora que esta en el cielo.
Yo regreso a mis viejas fotos, las imágenes borradas por los años y paso mis manos sobre ellas sabiendo que, aunque el tiempo acabe con las fotos, los recuerdos siempre vivirán en mí.
I love you manito chulo, relleno de mermelada. Te voy a extrañar el resto de mis días.

My brother Ray would smile and that smile would not only light up the room, it would light up the world! His love of family and joy for living were spread far and wide and to Ray every stranger was a friend he just hadn't met yet.
54 years of shared memories are not easy to put to paper but we had them, this I know is true. From keeping him out of trouble to nursing the wounds mom never found out about, to him shaving his mustache along with Edwin the night before Roger and I were married in his home (I still crack up at that one), the memories are in my heart and an indelible part of my being.
Ray leaves behind a loving wife and 3 beautiful, strong, intelligent children. In Jaclyn, Evelyn and Ray I see his smile, I see his strength and I see the love he instilled in them. He leaves behind a family that is a force of love in and of itself.
Relleno I'm gonna miss you every single day and every day thereafter. I love you. Your "seester".
