Margie, Raymond fought a long battle with his Parkinsons, and he was so fortunate to have a woman of your strength, love, and loyalty by his side. Raymond loved IMA and his friends, but his family meant everything to him. He was a true gentleman and helped so many of us learn professionalism and expanding our capabilities. He will be missed by so many including the many student members of IMA that gravitated towards him at every event. Our condolences to you and your beautiful family. Pat, Jeanne, John, Patrick and Keira Clark
