Lib and Raymond were the first people to welcome us to Lexington
20 years ago, when they came to our home and brought us vegetables from their garden. I thought they were the nicest people
I had ever met. Little did I know then, that they would become my best friends. They made me feel that I was family to them, and I grew to love them deeply. They were my heart. I love their family and they are so very special to me. I am so honored to call them my
special friends. I miss all of the special times I shared over the years with Lib and Raymond. All of the talks, smiles, and their sweet hugs.
I will always treasure them and thank God for bringing them into my life. Now they are my angels looking over me from heaven.

Dear Mandy and John, Ann and Gene, and Ray and Ron and family.

It was with great sadness that Vicky and I received the news of Mrs. Lib’s passing. What a wonderful person she was and a friend to so many people. Vicky and I enjoyed so much our time with her and Mr. Raymond and the lunches and dinners we shared in together in recent years. We had the best of times with them, all beginning with my internship at St David 40 years ago. Please know that you are in our prayers and will remain so in the days ahead. God bless you all and may His peace rest upon you.
