Ray was a wonderful neighbor and will be surely missed. I loved sitting with Ray during his illness and he would share so many of his wonderful adventures. My heart goes out to the entire family and may God Bless Donna for the love and care that she gave her Mom and Ray during their illness. With love, Dolores Peck
