Rodney and Sidney, your dad will be missed by so many people!! I'm honored to have had the privilege to work for him, and he and your mother were longtime friends of my mom & dad, too. He was truly a wonderful man.

The first time I remember seeing Ray, he brought Rodney to the house to pick up Karen for their first date (since Rodney couldn't drive yet). I don't know too many Dads, even today, that would do that. Our prayers are with all of you.
