Dear Ray,
I remember your Mom at your open house last Christmas. Her eyes had such warmth as she greeted your guests, but what I remember most is how she glowed when she looked at you, her son. Such love is a special gift that you carry in your heart. You are your mother's son. She has blessed you with a good heart and she will all-ways be with you...
Much Love,

Kathleen Behler

Ray, your mother was a wonderful person and even though I only saw her every 6 months at her dental visits, I always enjoyed her company and stories of her life. I will miss seeing her smiling face and her kind words. She loved her family very much. May God's peace be with you until you can reunite with her in heaven.
