Ray was a first cousin. I remember visiting the family when his folks lived in SC. Ray was in high school then but was already driving a school bus. I remember thinking how odd to let high school kids drive a bus. That must have been where he got his start driving bus and working at the public schools. You have our sympathy on his passing. Ed is the son of Howard and Edith Holloway, the only one still living in that family.
