I don't know if I have already sent a message to the family but I want to send another one , to make sure. Mildred (Baby Rae) and I shared alot of good times together. She had a good sense of humor. The last time we were together was a lunch , since I was in Jackson for a while. We had such a good time. I know she is happy now to be with Joe, Shirley, her parents, and great grandson. I will pray for the family as they grieve her lose.

Wish I could be with the family at this time. Baby Ray and I were always close. We shared so many laughs together, she had a great sense of humor. The last time I was in Jackson, a few years back, we all got together for lunch and we all had a good time. I know she is happy now, being with Joe and Shirley and her Mom and Dad. My prayers are with the family.
