I knew Bro. Ray for many years and loved him. I loved his sense of humor. We all had a great time when we went to church camp. He will be missed by many, but I am happy to know that we will all see him again.

I met Bro. Ray many years ago. We shared many hours of fellowship in church related activities. I always enjoyed being with Ray especially at church camp. We would have long talks during the week. Ray was always so enjoyable to be around, he was a joy and blessing to me. May God continue to bless his family.
