Gloria, Kristine, Deb, Kevin, and family,
I want to express my sincere sympathy on the loss of your husband, father, grandfather. I only met Gloria and Ray through your niece, Zorina, who was my best friend in high school, and your sister, Rosina. I will always have memories of his jovial personality, joyful smile and sense of humor. Because of our shared faith in Christ we have the assurance that some day you will be together in heaven. Psalm 116:15 tells us that "Precious in the sight of the Lord is the death of one of his saints." and I Peter 5:7 lets us know that our sorrows and earthly concerns are the Lord's personal concern. I will be praying for all of your family and friends in this time of difficult loss.

Gloria, I'm so sorry to hear about Ray's passing. I met Ray when he and my husband Chuck Firestien left for Ft. Leonard Wood, Mo. to be soldiers in June of 1953. After basic training I went to Mo. to be with Chuck , for how long we didn't know. We were lucky to stay for two years, but many of the other fellows were shipped out to other places. During the time Ray was in Mo. we learned to know Ray better. He was a good "guy". Years later I was honored to be able to play the organ at my church when he sang for his brother in laws memorial. I didn't know Ray was such a wonderful soloist and it was great to connect with him again. He did a great job.
Maybe Ray and Chuck can now talk about those army days again in Heaven.

Raymond and Gloria have been beloved neighbors for over 40 years. We will miss Raymond dearly. Will miss him coming in our yard on his four wheeler to visit. We watched for him everyday going to the water box on his bike and waited for him to return. We will miss his knowledge and caring nature. Raymond will be in our hearts forever. He had a great love for God and his family.
Love you both
