Laird and Joanne Miller
We were so sorry to hear about Ray's passing -- just now in July 2012 - thanks to a dear cousin. Our hearts go out to Candy and Corinne and their families. Ray was the last and at age 88, that gives testimony to the strong genes that ran in the Engebrit family.

As is usually the case, we never spend enough time appreciating each other in life and now in death we discover it is too late. Ray enjoyed life and always made the best of it. I pray the Lord's blessing on Candy & Corina along with Carol and the rest of the extended family in their grief at his loss.

Sister Irene's oldest daughter - Kathleen. Lots of happy reunion memories, especially because of the glee Ray and brothers Wally and Joe generated when they all were together. Those are the most dear of all my childhood memories and I hear the laughing now.
