Cousin Ray is part of a group of some of the greatest men you could ever meet. I am so grateful that I was able to share a small part of his life. We sold cucumbers to him when I was a teenager and many times he would be there with the rest of them at Cousin Harvey's Store...just a couple of my fonder memories. Rest in peace, you are loved! My prayers go to the family for their loss.

So sorry to hear about Mr. Ray. When he was able to come into the FSA (old ASCS) office we all really enjoyed visiting with him. Mr. Ray was also the leader when Tim was in boy scouts and Tim has some great memories of Mr. Ray letting the scouts camp on the farm. We will keep your family in our prayers.
