Shirley, Judy & Carl: Just got the news from my Mom about Ray. Please know you're in our thoughts during this time and so many prayers for Ray as he declined in health. We love each of you and miss you. So many memories of you all and Ray, remembering how much he cut up and how many times he would sneak candy and sweets. He was fun. May the Lord comfort each of you. I wish we could be there and give you a hug. Love,
The Wises (Mark, Michelle, Alexis, Brittany & Joshua)
