I'm truelly sorry to hear of Raymond's passing. The group that grew up together in Lisbon is now one less with Raymond's passing. I'm sorry I can't be at the viewing, but we'll run into each other at Chickadee or Hannaford. I can't be with you for the mass, but I will be there in spirit.
Again, I am sorry for your loss., until we meet later in our journey.
It's always hard for everyone when someone dies, but it's easier knowing that he is in a better place & waiting for you.
Until later, may Gob Bless you and your husband Robert.

I was a classmate of Ray's for 4 years at St. Dom's. Over the years since then I came to realize that he was not only a gentleman but also a gentle man. And he was not afraid to volunteer his time and talents. May he rest in peace.
My sincere condolences to the family.
