To all the family:

We are very sorry for your loss-you will all be in our thoughts & prayers. What I remember most about Uncle Ray is his booming laugh & his pinching our cheeks when we visited. He loved to tease! Sorry we can't be there in person to honor him but know we'll be there with you in spirit. Love you all!

Sue & Jack Lindley & family

One of my favorite memories from my childhood is of playing wiffle ball in my grandparents' backyard on Nye St. Gram and Pepere would take turns pitching me the ball from their back porch on warm summer days and we all laughed so hard the one time Gram caught the ball. I'll treasure all the Sunday lunches, walks at Brooklawn park, and big belly laugh's at Pepere's jokes. He will be sorely missed. May he rest peacefully with Gram.
