We say a sad goodbye to our dear friend that became part of our family along with his wife Carol over twenty years ago. Raymond was Best Man at our wedding and from then we started the tradition of spending holidays, birthdays as a foursome. Our love and heartfelt prayers go out to his wife, caretaker and love of his life, Carol. He will be missed.
